A superb little car, it's got great performance along with good looks. I much prefer the new front end.
I love driving it, it sticks to the road and you can corner at speed. Not the fastest car on the road by any stretch of the imagination, but what you get for the money, you can't argue with.
The insurance grouping is also a bargain, at insurance group 6 it won't cost an arm and a leg to insure.
I'd like to see an improvement in the brakes department though, my previous car, a Saxo SX had the same problem. Spongy and not very responsive. Considering it has all round discs I find the stopping distances quite poor. Especially when compared with my other car, a Fiesta Zetec which has superb brakes.
All in all I love it, and would recommend it to anybody looking for a small, nippy, fun to drive and not too heavy on the wallet little car!
