This is a great little car! It has an individuality and character missing from more mainstream and run of the mill small hatchbacks.
The performance from the little 3 cylinder engine is very impressive, helped no doubt by the light weight of the car. It has a very addictive engine note too.
This car comes packed with kit... all round disc brakes with ABS and esp, traction control (yes on a 1.1!) air con, electric power steering, alloys, panoramic roof and the list goes on!
The two colour mix of a silver 'Tridion' frame and flame red 'plastic' body panels looks very distinctive and stylish. The interior too is a very pleasant place to spend time.
It really puts a smile on my face every time I drive it, and it has a high 'cool' factor, with people often asking what it is and what it's like to own/drive.
I am nonplussed as to why a) it didn't sell better b) MB/DC pulled the plug. Try one and buy one... I did and I LOVE IT!
