Economy - both fuel consumption and purchase price
Only bug was that once, when starting it got confused when I pressed the accelerator. The electric power steering became disabled until re-started.
Best car I have ever purchased. Very economical (65-70 mpg average) and very quiet for a diesel. Performance is good and road holding fine - the variable power steering makes parking really easy. Everyone says it looks good with its unusual egg shape with a hint of a 2CV about it. The air-con is very efficient and quick to cool. It was also the cheapest of all the alternative makes and models. I worry a little that all the electronics may one day go wrong, but I am extremely impressed with the 70hp turbo diesel engine.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
