I have a bought a three year old SZ4 and have had it for nearly a month. I must say I am delighted overall with this car and the only real fault I can mention is the lack of torque. You do have to rev the engine to get it to perform but I have been used to more powerful cars and I do ride a motorcycle so perhaps I am being harsh. The interior is well finished and easy to use with no fiddly little buttons. A very pleasant, comfortable cabin with adequate space and the equipment level is excellent with a general feel of a more expensive vehicle. It handles very well, has good all round visibility and thus far is returning 46 mpg, although I have not yet driven it on a motorway. The boot is on the small size due to the good size cabin but there is just the two of us so that is not a problem. I think it is a good looking well made car that is very pleasing to live with and, if this is what a three year old with 26,000 miles on the clock is like then I would not hesitate to buy a new one. £30 road tax ,5 star NCAP rating, keyless entry, push button start, climate control, cruise control, privacy glass, Bluetooth, USB connectivity, automatic lights,alloy wheels, front fog lights, power assisted steering, driver seat height and steering wheel adjustment coupled with a decent sound system makes for a terrific value for money package. If you want more power, I would but my wife wouldn't so that's that, then go for the Sport version.
