A Fun Box
Alarm kept activating for no reason. Has stopped now for unknown reasons.
Gearbox sometimes won't engage on very rare occasions, but still...
Cabin is funky and has futuristic looks. Comes with a respectable spec.
Sporty seats are very, very comfortable and snug you in the right way.
I'm most impressed with the handling, even in the wet it's great. Very predictable with a lot of grip. Although steering can feel woody in the rain.
Tailgate is half decent for the size of car.
Not too much room in rear, would recommend the adjustable rear seats if buying.
A great buy for around town, has good torque and is nippy once into 2nd gear. Can surprise other drivers, acceleration is quicker than what is quoted. Engine loosens up after 4500-5000. Bags of fun though, would be great as a first car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
