Summary:

A true hot hatch - get one if you can

Faults:

None yet.

General Comments:

General build quality is good.

Very responsive under both urban driving as well as on the open road. Superb handling with braking to match.

Still early days to comment on fuel consumption, but after driving a modded Toyota it seems a lot lighter on the pocket. Love the engine sound.

Summary:

The best value and fun in one car - ever!

Faults:

Brakes needed replacing.

Rain leaks under the front doors.

General Comments:

I have driven 211 cars - and this is by the far the best!!! I could hardly be happier with a purchase of any car.

Fuel consumption only marginally more than my Mazda 323, quick on the road, good looks and safe feel.
