Ideal for the city
Member Name: Allybaldeagle
Advantages: Economy - roomy for size
Disadvantages: Performance in snow
This is a great little car for city driving and isn't too bad out of town either. It's surprisingly nippy for a car of its size and parking is a dream in town. It's cheap and economical to run - my wife has an 18 mile round trip commute across the city daily and it's ideal for this. It seems to be reliable too - we have had an issue with the headlight adjusters but this was fixed under warranty without quibble.
Given its size there's a fair bit of room inside and a reasonable amount of boot space. There's plenty of headroom so two adults will fit comfortably in the back. The controls are straightforward and it's also relatively cheap to buy, tax, insure and run. It won't turn many heads but for a city runabout with the occasional trip further afield, often with two kids, it's ideal for us.
One downside is that it's not good at all in the snow - we're looking at putting on winter tyres this year which will hopefully improve performance..
Summary: An ideal car for city driving with the occasional trip further afield
