Written by Parkers on

The 2004 facelift sees the 45 continuing to soldier on. It's showing its age in the face of newer rivals like Focus and Golf as it dates back to the mid 1990s, but still offers a comfortable ride and decent equipment levels. If you enjoy the bowls club image then it fits the bill but you need to get a good discount for it to make real sense.
