Parkers overall rating: 3.5 out of 5 3.5

Originally only a driver's airbag was fitted, a passenger airbag became standard post-'99 and side bags were optional. Traction control from '97 but it was never Euro NCAP crash tested. Gets an alarm, immobiliser and deadlocks.

The boot is a fairly good size - enough for a weekend away and there is additional storage space behind the seats with the roof up. Lockable cubby holders provide extra storage within the cockpit.
