Escort GTi's are great cars. I am about to buy one for around £1900 (3 door). I test drove this car and loved it. The steering felt a little heavier than my 1.6 LX, but I have been told this isn't a problem. The car is quick for its weight. Who really needs a car with over 115bhp? The whole point of a nice car is to drive slow so people see it. Instead of spending money on engine tuning, spend it on a DVD player and a sound system. Once lowered with a set of 16's, this car looks amazing. Anyone who says otherwise doesn't know much about car styling. You most likely drive a Saxo or something equally bad.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
