Excellent little family car - well built and very economical
Nothing, just wear and tear - tyres and wiper blades!
+ Fantastic economy. We average approx 60 mpg, 50% town/50% motorway. When I drive carefully, I get 70 mpg.
+ Build quality - interior and exterior feel solid and very well put together.
+ High seating position very comfortable, even for a 6 footer like me.
+ Very pleasant, roomy driving environment with well layed out instrumentation.
+ Plenty of legroom in the back for adults.
+ Nice features like steering wheel stereo controls.
+ Engine actually has some grunt if you work it and keep within the power bands. Overtaking on an A-road is perfectly do-able, but that's not really what this car is about.
- Handling is nothing special (compared to say a Focus), but completely acceptable for a small family car.
- Very small boot, but I think the rear seats fold flat (not tried it yet).
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
