Ford Escort/ZX2 is fun to drive. That's
the general idea my review is based on.
Performance is pretty good for 2.0L
with 130 "horsies" inside. Mine is
equiped with 5-speed manual
transmission which allows me to keep
the engine at high RPM whenever I want.
The most valuable feature for me is
that ZX2 is perfectly designed for heel-
and-toe downshifting. Gas and brake
pedals are positioned so close to each
other that it is possible to use only
an outside edge of a foot to blip the
throttle while braking hard. Power
steerig also greatly improves passing
the turn at high speed.
1) Convenient pedals position for heel-
2) Power steering
3) Nice look
4) Engine roar sounds pretty cool ;-)
