    My car

    I have the move up model and I chose this model with the winter pack optional extra which I believed would be and true to my belief is rather useful, you miss fog lights and heated mirrors when you haven’t got them and heated seats also prove rather useful particularly if you suffer with back pain. I exchanged a 1.4 litre seat Ibiza for this car and the savings in the amount I spend a month in petrol pretty much pays the difference on buying the new car. The trim level is more than adequate and the cabin is rather comfortable, I have do not think that the car is in any way less comfortable then the Ibiza I owned previously, and the car fits myself, my partner, a fifteen month old and a buggy in with no problems. The only let down with this car is that you can lose power very quickly on open roads with a large incline if you are in to higher gear, so you can find yourself changing down gear a few more times that what you where used to previously, that being said the car handles brilliantly and is really manoeuvrable. Also noticed that the fuel gauge seems to go down quicker once it has past the half way point but doesn’t really matter the car is quite simply fantastic overall, I’m really pleased with it.
