Parkers overall rating: 3 out of 5 3.0

All models have a driver's airbag; a passenger bag was originally only fitted to XE, GS and ES models but is now standard across the range. ABS was an expensive option on cheaper models but became standard in 2001. An alarm and immobiliser are standard, although extra protection may be needed for town use.

Like the three-door, the softback only offers enough luggage room for a couple of shopping bags. The rear seats need to be folded for larger loads. A few cubby holes.
