I decided to go for the small turbo diesel car, because a 1.5 litre engine, I thought would give me the power I needed. With the diesel economy as well, I was very taken with the car.
My car is the 65bhp version.
This car has great looks (new shape model).
The seats can get uncomfortable. I am 5'10", using the footrest next to the clutch causes backache.
Fairly quick car, although lacks any real power, due to being a diesel. 0-60 is quoted as taking 15 seconds in the documentation, I think it is quicker than this. It's fast off the lights, quicker than a Saxo VTR anyhow.
The interior appears plastic-ish and attracts dust easily. The stereo steering column control is very useful, and a nice feature.
This car comes with electric front windows, ABS, power steering, electric wing mirrors, four airbags, RDS radio/cassette with 6 speakers.
The car handles well enough, but I have heard the Dynamique handles better. It has better suspension and a more sporty look and feel.
Overall, this car is fun and interesting to drive. Very good value for money. I paid 8500 for mine at 3 months old (ex-demonstrator). Well worth it.
