I was saying the performance of this car means you will lack confidence pulling out at roundabouts. But I haven't driven it to so cant say with certainty (but how many people on this thread have actually driven this car?). I can only compare to my fathers 81bhp Honda Jazz which I assume would give similar performance.
I can imagine a cyclist lacking confidence at a roundabout. This car has a first gear, an accelerator and a clutch. If you can't use those properly, then you're a poor driver,
I drive an i10 with 86bhp and frequently pull alongside much more powerful cars at roundabouts. I'll pull out when the way is clear and be across the roundabout before the person in a very powerful car alongside me has even spotted the opportunity to go, or they lack the confidence and probably have no idea how to accelerate quickly.
Small engined cars are great fun to drive around cities simply because they are much more agile. It's not the power that's ever lacking, it's the driver's lack of skill.
Mnehh. 86bhp. Nice. I am being sarcastic of course.
User ignore "click".
Why would you lack any confidence when it would go just fine in first gear at a junction? whatever car I've ever drove I would never feel like this... Though I'm not a nervous driver.
Ok, so in driving a 300bhp car I'm a nervous driver, whereas grown men driving little shopping carts is fine. Thanks for clarifying.
That comment says a lot about your character. My car is a tool to get to work, it beats cycling...not a dick extension.

Yeah, I knew I was setting myself up for that comment! Funnily enough I'm not too "nervous" to cycle the 30 mile round trip to work.

He quite evidently didn't understand the point that my little 1.2 litre 86bhp i10 has no problems at roundabouts at all unlike him driving his Dad's 81bhp Jazz. I guess he needs mega horsepower just to pull out at roundabouts.

This is a 1.5 diesel with only 109bhp, this is more like a sheep in wolves clothing!

Yes it's a Renault engine !

Oh aye! Daimler AG own Mercedes Benz and Mercedes AMG and are share holders in Renault-Nissan Alliance.

A3 or golf for me,
Back door access on A class is an issue even tho' it looks great.
Lexus has all the toys & the looks but drives like a ferryboat.
Even Clarkson said it was like taking a bath in wallpaper paste.
Such a shame.
Nice car but Audi or the golf for me :)
A fun hatchback in this sector does not have to be a BMW 1 series, especially if you care what the car looks like. The MK7 Golf (not saying it is beautiful - evolutionary Golf shape, but it's not pig ugly like the 1 series) is an excellent all-rounder. The Golf GTD (56% GFV) has residuals that eclipse both the 120d (47% GFV) and the Merc equivalent (51% GFV) - which helps greatly in keeping the monthly purchase/lease costs down, has great handling/no rock-hard ride despite being on 18" rubber and lowered suspension and it is jam packed with standard equipment.

The Merc is a decent looking car (looking a lot like a VW Scirocco from the front and sides), but my mate has the A220D and the ride is bone crunchingly hard - he's got to do 30k miles a year in it for work - his poor spine!

More power for what? to get upto 30mph quicker?

If most of your Journeys are at 30mph then you really shouldn't be considering a MODERN diesel car. New diesels have DPF (diesel particulate filters) which require regular journeys at Dual Carriageway / Motorway speeds in order to clean (regenerate) themselves.

Because of the soot particles which diesel cars emit, DPF's do block fairly quickly and these regeneration cycles are required at roughly 300 - 700 mile intervals (depending on model, driving style and the DPF design). A regeneration can only take place with a high exhaust temperature and takes upto 20 - 25 minutes on some models to complete - therefore cars which aren't frequently driven for long enough journeys, in order to get the exhaust to a high enough temperature, on trips less than 25 minutes at highway speeds will potentially never get the opportunity to go through their programmed regeneration cycle.

So, If you use mainly cars for city driving / school / shopping runs or heavy traffic stop - start commutes then expect problems farther down the line, expensive problems because the DPF won't be able to regenerate resulting in it becoming blocked to the point where it cannot function, and the engine management light illuminating.

Should this happen, and the DPF be at a stage where it is too blocked to clean itself, then a dealer forced regeneration costs £100 - £200 a time, if that fails then you will be back on here moaning that you have just had a bill for £1000+ to replace the DPF, and it isn't covered under warranty. Google it, because this happens more often than most people would like, and the cost a replacement quickly negates the savings made by diesel economy.

So city driving / school runs / under 12k miles a year / little motorway / dual carriageway travel - Get a petrol or an older diesel
12k+ miles per year / regular motorway travel / long daily commutes - You will be fine with a modern diesel

Don't just take my word for it or think that its rare, google 'DPF Problems" "Dpf blocked" or "Dpf warning light" to find hundreds of examples of owners who have made the same expensive mistakes.

The whole DPF issue has also been covered pretty extensively in the press, the problem is real, and the advice should be heeded..

http://www.thisismoney.co.uk/money/cars/article-2332107/Petrol-vs-diesel-cars-Drivers-warned-diesel-filter-trap.html
http://www.whatcar.com/car-news/honda-cr-v-diesel-particulate-filter-warning-light-problem/1230916
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2056574/Motorist-told-45-000-Jaguar-keeps-breaking-driving-FAST-enough.html

Even VW state openly that you should discuss your driving patterns and style with the dealer before buying a diesel car, in order for the dealer to assess the suitability of your intended vehicle use with the requirements of the on board DPF system.

http://www.volkswagen.co.uk/about-us/news/318

In the United States, all emissions related equipment bolted onto engines comes with a mandatory 8 year / 80,000 mile warranty from the dealer, however over here we have no such luxury.

So, personally, I wouldn't be using a diesel car if your preferred speed is 30mph, or you drive on roads where 30mph limits are the norm.




thanks for taking the time to fully explain a potential problem, I will certainly bear it in mind when I purchase my next car.
What sort of journeys do you do?

Thanks a lot for the info. Is it true with cars like BMW/Audi/Merc etc?

It's true for all modern diesels. Dates depends on how early each model complied with Euro V regulations, my first diesel with a particulate filter was a 2005 car.
Thanks a lot for the response. I was looking to buy a 2010 Jaguar XF 3.0 or 2010 BMW 520d. Any idea about these?

MORE FIRE?????

Don't you mean, "Mo Farrah???"





Is that what he says? LOL

Yep, it's to do with him and Mo and their friendship and the 2012 Olympics and all that. Usain doing the Mo-Bot and Mo doing the Lightning Bolt pose.

Surely others know he's saying "Mo Farrah?" in the Virgin Media commercial? :)

It's also a mickey take of the old grandad character in the ad, showing him to be a little deaf, as the other three do say, "More power?" one after the other but grandad doesn't hear it right :)

Few slight niggles with the ibiza cockpit.

Key awkward to turn in ignition due to lack of space.
De-mister behind gear stick, should be on dashboard.
17' alloys feel to heavy for the power steering and pull on badly surfaced roads, they also make the drive a very very hard one.

Just my 2p as an owner, apart from that. Love the car and can't believe how much power the engine has for such little Road tax!
Only thing I've found not sure about this model but the previous to this and Leon seem quite light on the back end, had it kick out a few times, but good price wise. Personally would pay the extra and get a golf but that's me
