Advantages: Great to drive, smooth, comfortable, reliable, economical
Disadvantages: Ride is firm
Firstly performance - The car has a 140 hp 2.2 litre diesel engine which although not phenominal produces enough power to hold it's own against most cars, it has very good overtaking punch. For a diesel engine it's very smooth and even at high revs the power delivery is very smooth. I get a combined average mpg of 44mpg. The pedals are very responsive and feels a great car to drive. Being a BMW it has a fairly stiff ride so passengers are not so well catered for but it's far from uncomfortable and there's a decent amount of space in the rear for passengers. The boot, although large, isn't particularly well shaped so if your intending to take more than two suitcases to the airport then you'll struggle! but it's perfectly adequate for every day use. the car is very reliable and the only expense i've had is new tyres, new brake pads and a new clutch. It feels very solidly built which instilts confidence! overall a great buy.
Summary: A great all round car
