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.
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.
