Overall rating

4 out of 5 stars


  • Economy is impressive and easy to attain
  • Diesel is torquey and refined
  • Handling is still a lot of fun
  • Solid build quality


  • Single Econetic model somewhat lacking in standard equipment
  • Sixth gear would offer better cruising refinement
  • Interior is well built but uninspiring
  • No three-door option
