Bargain B-road thrills!
Drivers seat is working loose.
Intermittent clicking from suspension.
The handling of this car is simply amazing! A light tail makes it feel a little twitchy and nervous, but the payoff is an amazing ability to turn into corners, and great adjustability on the throttle. It can bite though - this is a very easy car to spin if you take liberties with it.
The steering is very accurate and offers plenty of weight and feedback, although can be heavy when parking.
The engine is not particularly powerful, but revs keenly round to the red line. It delivers fairly decent performance, but you need to keep it over 4,000 RPM to get the best out of it.
Although stable at speed and surprisingly comfortable, low gearing spoils the car's long distance suitability.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
