Advantages: good looks & handling
Disadvantages: smaller engines lack power
This is a very good car, especially in gti form, with resposive handling and stunning good looks, it has a very good quality engine build & i've never known one go wrong. Base models however (including junior) lack sufficient power for safe & effective overtaking of slower moving vehicles. In older base models lack of servo assisted braking makes for a scary drive as you realise the lack of power until you get used to it. A large boot space for this size of car does make it an ideal first car, being small & easy to handle whilst not too small to carry luggage & 3 adult passengers in comfort (although this is noticable in cars with smaller engines.
