General Comments:

Very good car, well built, well designed and amazingly well behaved on the road. I bought mine after running a Golf 1600 - the Tipo's build quality was better and the performance, comfort and handling well ahead of the Golf's. I'm now looking for another with a bigger engine!

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
