Brian’s insight into this car
This is a great car for its class. It’s in range of its rivals such as the Toyota Yaris and Chevrolet Aveo. It’s quite a comfortable and reliable car.
It looks are very specific, so you’ll definitely be noticed in it. It’s tall and sharp, and from the outside it looks like a mini-van. Nor space will be lacking because the interior room is greater than any of its rivals, and it’s more economical than them
It really is favorable with regards to the starting price and when fuel consumption is concerned.
Thanks to the movable rear seats, the car has really amazing luggage space.
Brian, which one is best for me?
I’m happy with the 1.5-liter engine, as it goes very leisurely and it’s not small or insufficient, no matter how much it looks that way.
You can opt for the automatic transmission, which is not bad, if you are not a fan of gearshifters. All in all, you’ll definitely be satisfied.
It comes in two versions, standard and sport, and both are quite rich. They have air conditioning, cd player, 15 inch steel wheels. The Sport variant adds, among other things, a leather steering wheel and touch screen navigation that is particularly interesting to me.
And the running costs are?
In the very beginning it’s not very expensive, you can have one of the best cars in its class for less money, than any of its rivals.
And after that …. Economy is one of the main virtues of this vehicle.
Servicing and insurance also should not be a concern because it’s in the average range.
All in all, Splendid!
Problems, and more problems with this car?
For those who are sensitive wind and noise can be very uncomfortable. But I repeat again, you can not expect to get a flying machine from the class of car in which it belongs.
