A Spanish senorita that will have you hooked
I went and bought this car after my Peugeot 306 D Turbo finally decided to finally pack up.
I couldn't believe the torque the car had on the test drive and ordered on that day.
The interior is very comfy and rather quite "swish". The dials light up red which I feel is a nice touch. There have been reviews of the interior build quality, but I have not heard a rattle in 18k miles and 14 months of ownership.
The performance is where this car does the talking. I bought the 100bhp version mainly because of cost and have found it to be quite quick. But I soon got a little bored and took it for a remapped ecu, the new power is unbelievable and is now pushing about 140bhp with a lot more torque which gives my cousins BMW 530i a run for it's money. 0 -60 in just over 7 seconds. Not bad for £200.
Basically if you want a car that is reliable, quick, fun to drive and a lot cheaper than it's VW cousin then this is the car for you. It is affordable in both running costs (average 48mpg) and tunablilty.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
