    2 out of 5 2.0

    What's it like to drive?

    Nice until you reach 50mph, then the noise begins. Don't try to go up even the shallowest of hills, much gear dropping to follow. 1.6 woefully underpowered, being left for dead by Nissan Micra's and pushbikes wears a bit thin after a while.

    Hard work, but only due to it's lenth. Good visability all round.
