Given the performance onoffer, fuel consumption well below 7 litres/100km is seriously impressive for what is stillthe quintessential hot hatch.

On the open road, the engine delivers itsbest in effortless fashion, powering the hatch along at highway speeds without ever raisinga sweat.

The suspension and handling have a real track-tunedfeel to them and can be a little harsh over really nasty surfaces.
