Want to know everything there is to know about this car?
Good amount of kit for the price.
Service costs are relatively cheap at £60-£100.
On the road
Brilliant handling and road holding. The gearbox is great.
Warm rather than hot-hatch but compares well to competitors.
Living with it
Minor electrical problem but otherwise terrific for a new model.
Not as image conscious as a Golf but new-edge styling leads the others.
Seat and steering wheel are very adjustable but seats could be more supportive.
Security and Service
Bonnet locks down, immobiliser, alarm and deadlocks.
Dealer service was excellent.
Problems and Ownership
Electrical glitch with the headlights; cost £25 to fix.
