- Considering that it's only a 1.2 it does perform well - especially about town and is quite "nippy" on the motorway- providing there are no steep gradients involved. The in house Bluetooth connectivity allowing you to use your phone to make & receive calls and play music from it is a very handy function and the more upright driving position and comfortable steering wheel are really good. I love the new body shape and compact size of the car- wish they did it in a 1.4 engine though in this model- just for those gradients when changing gear!
- Main complaints are that at times there is a vibration from the rear of the car when traveling at speed- possibly the seats or seat belts in the rear and my main bugbear is the sound quality of the stereo system, which when compared to my previous Fiesta, I find quite "tinny". This could be due to the positioning of the speakers as they are all low down on the doors and- as yetI cannot find a "balance" command to increase the volume from the rear of the car, or it could be due to lack of "woofer" in the speakers, but there is a limited bass quality- especially when using a USB memory stick to provide the music and as someone who likes to listen to music, especially on a long drive, I find this disappointing. Overall though, I would recommend the car as a good "super mini!"
