In their own words

Surprisingly spacious inside including the rear with a pretty big boot and fold down seats, much bigger on the outside than it looks from outside. Sri spec is OK nothing amazing. Mine hasn't got sat nav or anything. It's quite a good looking car, in my opinion it's the back end that makes it and the front is a little basic looking although improved on the later versions. I personally don't like the 'upgrade' rear bumper with the extra piece of body coloured plastic rather than the black insert, it's the back bumper that gives it its stocky and wide appearance from the rear and the "upgrade" part to me ruins that look and looks like a naff afterthought. But that's just my opinion. Has to have at least the 19" fan blade wheels or it just looks naff. Again, it's the wheels that give it its wide looking stance in my opinion. MPG is very good, performance isn't earth shattering but OK, feels slower than lesser powered German cars I have driven for some reason. I have only had one problem with the car after owning it about 18 months (48k when I got it, 61k now) and that's a fairly significant one which is 2nd gear going on the gearbox which is a common fault and a £600 repair which is currently booked in. Otherwise OK. To sum up, it's a decent ish looking, surprisingly practical, larger than it looks nippy-ish diesel car that's half the price of an equivalent golf Gtd. And it's cheap to run and reliable, providing the gearbox doesn't go like mine..... So if you're OK with it being a Vauxhall and are looking for a 3dr with some room at a cheapish price, it makes a decent bet
