After 1 year of ownership i have found the car totaly reliable an fit for purpose.The boot is on the small size but drop the rear seats and it becomes a van.I would recomend this car to people who require a nice little reliable run around with good mpg.

I bought this car because it had a) automatic transmission and b) a high seat position because I have severe arthritis. I mainly drive locally so high speed performance wasn't important although she will cruise at 70 down a motorway quite comfortably. You notice the lack of power if you need to accelerate up a hill, especially if fully loaded, but she handles quite nicely unless in a severe cross-wind when her light weight and high profile means that you need to concentrate. The biggest niggle is the boot. It is fine for shopping etc but is just too narrow to take a standard medium case lying flat (1-2cm would make all the difference!). You would find it difficult to pack enough luggage for a family for more than a weekend stay. However for 1-2 people or as a second car it offers a reasonable option. It would be great for ferrying elderly relatives because of the seat position.

Bought this car because of the fold flat rear seat system enabling me to carry my mothers wheelchair with ease. It only takes a second to push the release buttons and hey presto you have the room of a van in the back. MPG is really good, handling fine, and it is has a reasonable performance on motorways. Comfortable seats . Dashboard layout o.k. Overall a really good buy with the VAT amount as discount it has brought the price within range of other cars this size

This is a good little car - My 6ft 4 in husband can sit in this easily and see out- not possible in a number of other small saloons. Plenty of space for lugging around goods and chattels. and enough room for three in the back.

I have had this car for a year, she is comfortable to drive and has all the space I need inside. She has just done a uni run and we had enough room for all my daughter's bits and pieces. I like the fact the car looks taller at back than some cars so that makes more room

Handy small automatic. Major gripe is the boot - it is 1-2 cm shallower than a standard suitcase which makes packing for a holiday very frustrating. Seats are good, would have appreciated handle on driver's side as well as passenger's since I have arthritis. Some difficulty positioning car and self to get good views when parking in confined spaces. Poor sense of 'straight' in reverse - garage has improved it but still very dependent on visual. Car performs well for its size but there are situations where you really have to push it if you need extra performance or choose to 'chug on'. I imagine it would be more noticeable with 4 adults and luggage - I mainly drive alone or with 1 passenger. Good little runabout, will cope with most motorway driving as well and nice high seat position if you or your front seat passenger have limited mobility.
