    My car

    Great to see Mitsubishi making a small turbo charged car. It's great fun to drive with lots of kick when the turbo cuts in. I found the back end a bit, well, loose if you know what I mean, I think it could do with stiffening at the back end.

    That little problem hasn't put me off though - I'd rather have a CZT than most of the other hot hatches out these days. It kind of stands out from the crowd (and not to mention it won't fall to pieces or breakdown like some).

    My car

    I have just taken this out for a test drive and I have to say I am impressed.

    Its acceleration in any gear is fantastic, despite a slight lull before the turbo kicks in, but this in no way diminishes the pleasure I received in driving it.

    The CZT looks great, from the outside anyway. It has a bulldog quality to it that I think all baby hot hatches should have. The interior though is a disappointment. Who in their right mind would offer a leather interior with a standard red square pattern in a car that has sky blue detailing? It was enough for me to drive down to the Alfa garage and plump for the more expensive and less powerful 147.

    The buttons on the dash also feel cheap and tacky. It's a shame, because this is a great car to drive.

    My car

    I own this car for two months now and I can say it's the most mature choice of its category.

    Good performance, huge spaces, fresh design, good build quality and nice handling. It definitely deserves your attention if you plan to buy a small city car. Test-drive it and see for yourself.

    My car

    I have only owned this car for just over a week, but it has been a joy to drive.

    I got no real discount from the dealership but it has a great spec for the price. I love the sliding rear seats, it seats four adults comfortably or two children with luggage.

    The power steering gives more feedback than class rivals with no noticeable body roll for such a tall car. It has a great driving position too.

    If you are looking for economy with practicality, this is the one.
