Sentiment Score 82%
Reviewers from carmagazine have found the following***:
Punchy off the line, as you'd expect for a small car with 116bhp and 162lb ft of torque, the latter available from a standstill. Top spec cars get two tone leather on the two spoke wheel, which looks great, and doesn't bend when you lean on it with your palm for quick urban u-turns. Steering remains one-finger light, perfect for tight manoeuvres, and there's a small amount of well-controlled bodyroll, which makes the car feel confident and agile but not overly stiff.

Pros
  • Punchy off the line
  • Fun to drive
  • Good range
Cons
  • No gear selector
  • Chunky blind spots
