What was the dealer like?
What's it like to drive?
Very nippy. The engine may only produce 96bhp, however the amount torque makes up for this. The car is also comfortable and is effortless to drive. Tends to wheel spin if your a little to hasty off the mark though so you might find yourself going though tyres fast.
What's it like to park?
A medium sized family car, so not that easy, however light steering helps.

The air-con system is very good, and the standard CD player is a nice touch.
