How you rate the manufacturer
Nice car, but who on earth thought this engine was a good idea?
I have this car on loan for a short while.
Good bits, really looks nice and (in the main) well screwed together. Excellent front seats. Decent sized boot even if you do have to post your luggage. Awful rear view so ensure the car has parking sensors.
Small diesel engine a terrible idea in a cabriolet. Much too noisy and unrefined, makes the entire car shake and causes dash rattle. Lacks any real power or flexibility so you are endlessly changing gear. doesn't even have the merit of being particularly economical.
Downside - the roof leaks badly, hardly what you want in a demo car.
A really nice car with a small petrol engine I think.
