I have had this car from new for more than a year now, and I have had no probelms whatsoever.
It's only a small 1.1 engine but it's very nippy and handles the motorway well. The seats are really comfortable and other poeple have also commented on the ride comfort.
I would recommend this car to anyone, especially young drivers who want something cheap to buy and run but also want the performance, quality and of course looks.
This Car is Great to drive. It can handle any corner at most speeds.
I'm a driving instructor and I previously had a Vauxhall Corsa 1.2 Comfort (51 Plate). I loved the Corsa but it was time to change it and I started looking around for a more distintive car. One that would get me noticed on the road.
I found the C2.
First I test drove the 1.1 version and wasn't too impressed with the lack of power in the engine. So I moved onto the 1.4sx. Loved it.
The things I like are:-
- The whole look of the car. It's different to nearly everything on the road.
- The seating position is fantastic for all sizes of drivers. This was a major concern when teaching people to drive. The very small drivers might have problems with not being able to see over the dash or through the rear window when reversing. Larger/taller drivers might have problems with leg room. The C2 is brillant at adapting to all sizes.
- Equiptment levels. Ok I added the luxury pack onto the 1.4sx model which gives Leather seats and parking sensors but it gives a much better impression to the learners.
- Safety. With air-bags everywhere I feel safe in the car with loony learners.
- Visability. The windows are low in the back which gives perfect vision for reversing.
Overall though I've given it a 5 rating because I just love the whole car. My pupils love it too. It's a real fun car and would suit the single people out there or as a second run around car. No good for families with loads of kids.
Fantastic little car.
OK, this car's getting a bad rep when it shouldn't - so here goes.
I own a Mazda RX-7 Twin Turbo (not for the faint-hearted) and looked at a C2 VTR as a company car.
I found the C2 is steady-footed around town and on faster roads up to about 85mph (not sure above that speed cause I didn't get that fast) the flappy paddle gearshift isn't as bad as people say it is.
It just takes a bit of getting used to, just like learning to ride a bike! The auto button on the other hand just isn't very good!
The interior, granted, could be better but it's OK, quite nice, and with the amount of equipment you get for your money you actually can't complain.
It's cheap to run as a car, too - fuel economy, insurance, tax etc.
Now I will say that I didn't (yes, didn't) get a C2 in the end but it wasn't my choice, and it wasn't because it's a bad car.
I had a Ford Ka 1.3 bought for me instead, and that is, and always will be - in my opinion, of course - the worst car ever made.
