Got to drive on of these by chance for the past 2 days due to me needing a hire car and it just happened to be where i wanted it at the time.
Was a 1.6 Auto for which i had not driven an auto before but i did not like it at all.
It seemed to never know what gear to be in all of the time, the gear changes were not smooth at all, it had to change down all of the time on the motorway even for just a little incline.
The engine had no go in it at all, it felt slower than my diesel astra.
The only saving grace for me were the interior and exterior looks of the car and comfort.
