1.0 is a bit weak for the heavy body and needs to be revved hard, so go for the 1.3. It doesn’t lose much in the economy stakes and is far more refined and substantially quicker.

Rather bouncy ride in town, but smoother on the open road. Rally 2 and four-wheel-drive Rally 4 are good fun and pep-up an otherwise pedestrian range. All models are grippy, although roll too much through corners. Easy to park and manoeuvre.
