ReviewThis has been an excellent vehicle. The interior design is delightful, and the quality for the money is outstanding. Mine has the older 1.6 liter engine which returns about 34 mpg in mixed driving. Although not very powerful, it is adequate and very willing powerplant. Cornering and general handling is very good. I would recommend ABS option for these cars as under hard braking (panic stop) sometimes the rear brakes will lock up early. Reliability has been perfect. A bit noisy on the highway (wind noise) but still comfortable for small car. Highly recommended!
Best FeaturesHandling, Free-reving engine, interior materials, and overall quality.
Worst FeaturesABS brake option is probably worth the extra money as panic braking may cause early rear wheel lockup. High wind roar around windows at highway speeds.
