Buying Guide

Good

Normally aspirated 1.3 is good fun to drive and good value. But lacks character of original 660cc turbo engine.

Like a tiny Audi TT with a folding tin top.

Bad

Imports suspended November 2009 due to unfavorable Sterling/Yen rate.

Watch

On 660cc versions, spark plugs can work lose and fire their way out of the engine on compression, causing further damage.

If not used regularly battery has a tendency to run itself flat. That means you can't get into the electric boot.
