  • Driving it

    3 out of 5 3.0

    What's it like to drive?

    Obviously its not very fast. It is also quite tall so it tends to roll in corners quite a lot. But that is not what its designed for. The only real criticism would be that the brakes were just too soft. Especially if there is more than one person in the car.

    What's it like to park?

    Carlsberg dont do car parking, but if they did....Its incredibly easy. The car is tiny, with the wheels at the corners, the driving position is high, visibility is excellent and there is power steering.

    Have you had any problems with the car?

    It was driven quite a lot for seven years, including being used as a learner car for a 17 year old male. Despite this nothing ever went wrong. Not even a flat tyre.

    What's most practical about your car?

    Despite its size it can carry five people at a push. It is also extremely cheap to run.

    Favourite gadget, option or accessory?

    It really is not a gadget kind of car.
