Can't see too many of these getting muddy considering the demographic promoted in the TV advert.

Has anyone driven one of these yet? My local dealers have changed name so maybe are worth considering again!

Initially I though the hybrid would interest me but I am now thinking the 1.2 turbo would be better for me. I suppose I should go and have a look at one in the flesh...

I wonder how these little turbo engines can be a long term bid ? Fiat and Ford are having problems getting decent power with reliability. To much from to little maybe ?

I saw three in the flesh at RRG Toyota yesterday . . . it didn't change my opinion . . . it's still the 2nd /3d ugliest car on the road, after the Joke and the Cashcow :D

I was always less than impressed with Westlands, too.

There's enough photos of the vehicle on the web, but I took a few, when I was in a dealer just before Christmas. Mainly to demonstrate the small back windows. Hybrid powertrain on this one.

It looks a bit grim in the back! Not sure that would be any good! I have just shown my wife the view from the back seats and she says we can forget that one - what a terrible design!


I like the two cars I have but I keep wondering whether I should change to one more economical car! I probably won't do anything for a year or so but like to do my research beforehand. I think I will stick to Honda or Mazda or Toyota or Lexus but not sure which!

Great pictures Andy !,

It is compromised in the back window wise but that's form over function I suppose! It does look good from the outside though so it's another case of not pleasing everyone.

How much smaller than a 4.4 is this car ?
