We've now owned our Splash for nearly 3 years, and it's been great. We're not fast drivers, but if you push the 1.2 it'll certainly get moving. Driving sensibly and not trying to check the 0-60 times gets us a routine 50+mpg each tankful. It's been completely 100% reliable to date, and the service costs seem very reasonable. Practically, the car is excellent. I'm nearly 6ft4in, and I can get comfortable easily; the headroom is great. Sitting forward a little, we can seat our family just fine - that's two quite tall teenagers/young adults, my wife and me. The boot's not massive, but with careful packing (and trying to travel light - not something that comes naturally) we can and have packed for a week away; snug, yes, but OK. However, what the 'real' review here doesn't mention is that when you drop the rear seats you get a completely flat load platform which could take a fridge, or a mountain of stuff to the tip, or whatever - for such a small car it's great. The underfloor plastic tray area in the boot is great for muddy kit, too. Why the SZ4? The extra safety kit, mainly. It's cheap to run, easy to park, versatile and we also think it looks great (ours is 'copper'). The latest 1.2 engine is excellent, too. Totally recommended.
