Great car for running around town.
Added: 26th of November 2018
I bought my little Suzuki in 2009 and it has never broken down at all. That's never...nothing. My rating for performance is obviously taking into account the size of the standard (non turbocharged) engine. It's faster than my first car, a Ford escort, that in it's day was considered a sporting version of the escort. It accelerates very well with just one on board, but I imagine that fully loaded, it's small engine would become obvious. The car still gets about 50mpg around town. The tax bracket is very low, £20...I think the new ones have been tweaked and fall into £0 now. My insurance is about £100 per year. The service adds around £200. So annual costs work out cheaper than the local bus fares. It's very agile around corners. So much so, that it takes a while to trust it to do what it can do. You feel like it should roll, but it doesn't and just sticks to the road. This assumes a reasonable amount of driving skill. Care though, as cornering hard at the wrong time and place in a town is very dangerous. It's so cheap that something has to give, and it's the ride. It's dreadful. It will shake you to bits on the UK roads at the moment. The roads are not in a good state, and the car was not designed to deal with the mess the roads are in. It looks tiny, yet due to the fact that it's hatchback with seats that can be folded means that you can fit in a lot of stuff. I used to play in bands. I could fit in a full bass rig (bass guitar speakers are huge). Then add the floor monitors. I could still fit in the PA speakers, and all the amps and cables, and juuust slide in the guitar and spare in the front passenger well. As well as mic stands, and even a lighting rig. That said, it is only licensed to carry 4 people. You can fit a healthy food shop in the back without laying down the seats. But of course, this is a small car! So...longer journeys, this car isn't for you. Big family, again you need more car. Bit of a speed freak, again you need more car. But, as a town runabout, you can't go wrong.
