  • 1. Alloy wheels, twin front airbags, sunroof, remote central locking alarm, cruise control and four electric windows come as standard
  • 2. Although mechanical problems are very rare, when they do occur they can be quite pricey to fix

  • 5. The braking system is the most common cause of problems, so make sure the car stops in a straight line
