This is a cracking little motor! Great spec: air con, remote locking, full electric pack(all windows and mirrors), air bags, alloys to name a few. Also power steering, which make parking and manovering and absolute doddle. You still get good feedback from the steering when driving, so on the right roads, you can still have a litte bit of fun with it. The driving position feels slightly elevated, giving a superb view of the road and all round visablity is very good owing to the large side mirrors. The dashboard layout is practical, all the right controls in all the right places. The radio/cd, it has to said, is excellent. Six speakers and a aux port, so you're able to hook up an iPod or MP3. I'm 6ft1" and have a comfortable driving position with room for a passenger behind. 3x3point seatbelts in the back, however I do wonder if 3 adults would be comfortable(unless they are Rita, Sue and Bob too that is). The boot space is ample with a handy stroage tray under the floor aswell. Not big enough for golf clubs but you can fit a moderate side suitcase,or a few bags of shopping. Rear folding back seats are simple and light to adjust and once down, I managed to fit a packed washing machine in with the boot closed. The engine is more than enough for town driving, sure it's not the fastest off the mark, but how many times do you really need hamiltonesque acceleration? On the motorway, which i do alot of between Leeds and Sheffield, it's perfectly happy at 70.
