Parkers overall rating: 2 out of 5 2.0

Little engine needs revving and you’ll have to work the gearbox. But it delivers adequate performance for runabout purposes. Will feel like hard work on the motorway, though.

Easy to drive but in no way set up to deliver anything other than the most basic of driving experiences. So keep it slow and keep it in town.
