Parkers overall rating: 2.5 out of 5 2.5

Deep windows, a high driving position and compact dimensions make for an easy town car with good visibility. Light controls make it easy to drive but it all gets rather busy at speed. Steering wheel adjusts for height, Recaro sports seats in the 1.5 Sport are supportive, fake carbon-fibre trim is more convincing than in CityRover.

Pleasantly roomy inside for such a small car and rear seats can be rake adjusted to improve the comfort of rear passengers when boot space isn't required. Unlike some rivals, it seats four in comfort.
