Smooth economical transport
Very little, it had O/S front damage when I got it, but it was repaired and apart from a service it hasn't been touched mechanically. It is even virtually rust free.
A huge improvement on the Austin Metro, the K series engine is smooth and willing, performance good for 1.1. The 5 speed peugeot gearbox enhances this further, only buy these if they have a 5 speed, a 4 speed will bring back all the old car's problems of getting stuck between ratios.
Front/rear connected suspension makes the car harder to set up and affects turn in.
Very economical 40+ mpg, even 50+ for grannies.
Very quiet compared to the A series version, engines sounds like a sewing machine below 4000 rpm.
Interior however is not up to the original MG Metro standards, bring back those racing seats please and the red carpets. In general a huge improvement, now I want an MPi 16v.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
