    My car

    This is a great car in all repects apart from the suspension. It handles well, but the ride is appalling. There is a nasty 'lively' bounce after each bump.

    It's very tiresome on a long journey - it feels like you are bobbing up and down in a Mk1 Mini. There's not enough damping - is this a design fault?

    Give it a good drive before you buy, and try many different road surfaces. It's a shame because everything else is superb!

    This car goes really well - it has fantastic acceleration and brilliant handling. The quality is superb and the layout is brilliant - it seats five people in comfort. The only downside is that the engine is a bit coarse.

    My car

    Overall, we have been delighted with it. It's well put together and an outstanding small family package.

    It's very well thought out and cleverly engineered. It has a very nice, positive, fun but safe drive.

    This diesel engine is impressive, the power is smoothly delivered and it's economical too.

    It is expensive perhaps, but wholeheartedly recommended.

    I have had this car for a month now. The drive is great, there is loads of room and it fits five adults. It is a very good buy.
