Overall, I think this is a superb car for the money. We bought ours secondhand, with 20 miles on the odometer (yes, twenty), and a year later it has completed 14,000 miles. Our model is the 1.4 BlueDrive, and I can regularly get 85+ mpg out of it on a motorway run, which I checked after I didn't believe the dashboard calculator. The stop-start mechanism takes a bit of getting used to, but has never caused a problem. My wife really likes the way the steering reacts to the circumstances in which you are driving, and I think Hyundai have got this right. Living with it, the dash layout and controls are very easy to use, make sense, and give you exactly what you need to know. The interior is rather cheap, and it doesn't do the car any favours. The seats could have more adjustment, the mirror vibrates at low revs and the fuel flap occasionally needs a few slams to shut. Handling wise, it is OK, the low rolling resistance tyres do not grip very well, but you don't buy a very economical car & expect it to handle. To summarise, it is a very economical car, quite capable of of a 2000 mile trip in 5 days, you will not look elegant, but you know it will get you where you want to go without a hiccup.
