Sharp suited brio
Door hinge retaining strap is loose and clicks when the door is opened.
Annoying rattle from behind the dash - now constant, but the dealer cannot locate it.
Strong performance from a very torquey engine. Excellent brakes too.
Mine is in Sprint Blue which shows off the lines really well.
Would have preferred a cheaper price without the standard SatNav which is hopeless.
Don't buy this car for fuel economy - it will not go above 25mpg!
It's a superb traditional style hot hatch. Very rare on the streets too.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
