Parkers overall rating: 3 out of 5 3.0

A decent driving position with a supportive seat and well-placed pedals (although the footwell feels a bit cramped). Most of the controls are logically laid out, but look dated and a bit cheap for a car costing this much.

Four doors, so there’s no problems getting in and out of the back. Good legroom for two and enough for three on shorter trips. At least you get five doors unlike most hot hatches. Rear legroom is ok, but the ride quality is a bit too harsh for passengers without a steering wheel to brace themselves against.
