Driving it

4 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Great. Very quick for it's size through the gears. Big engine in a wee car. Will happily cruise on the motorway and return over 50mph. On the other hand the low profile tyres are expensive and transmit a some road noise.

What's it like to park?
Great to park, good visibility, resposive throttle and steering. You get used to judging the front and back position of the car quickly.

Trip computer - gives me all the information that i need from outside temperature, ave speed, mpg, journey time etc.
