Parkers overall rating: 2.5 out of 5 2.5

A 1.6 is the baby of the range and it’s okay if you want to do some summertime cruising. The 160bhp 1.8 has the performance to live up to sporting aspirations. A 120bhp CVT is an oddball derivative.

Despite the mid-engined, rear-driven set-up, the TF is very user-friendly with good balance on the twisties, but handling on the limit is safe if not as incisive as some sportscars. Ride can feel rather harsh.
