Parkers overall rating: 3.5 out of 5 3.5

The basic structure is strong, but you only get passenger airbags, side airbags and ABS on the top-of-range 1.4 Sport. All models have deadlocks, but not much else.

Luggage space is shameful. Only just enough room for a week's shopping with the back seat up. For those with no kids you can fold the rear seat (on all models) and get much more room.
