Brilliant first car with sporting feel and urge, and a low insurance group!

feels and looks sporty and eager to please with a good engine note that resonates through the car, when having a bit of fun. quiet and refined when cruising with super-light steering that feels directly linked to the wheels as does throttle response. with comfortable hugging and supportive seats. rear legroom is brilliant for the size of car (similar to mk1 focus) although you can feel tall rear passenger's knees moving about in the front seats! boot space is large enough for a large shop and can easily be expanded by folding the rear seats (2 cords). standard ipod connection is also a winner.
not so good is the position of the speedometer (virtually on the passengers side), but is clear to read thanks to its large digital read out, and the air vents- air con is a must, they just make a big noise and no cooling if you dont have it.
best bit all my friends want one and cant get enough of it!!

mpg is a bit low but the engine isnt fully run in yet.
