Low cost, fixed price motoring. A good deal for a second car that's just used for commuting or nipping around.

Pass me a balaclava or full face crash helmet with tinted visor.

Thanks I'll get a couple to put in the kids stockings.

anyone has one? really interested if its ok for 40 miles motorway commute?

I would personally use a larger car on the motorway as its will be safer if you have an accident.

Ideal for parking in town though - and the ones taking the mick out of it probably go by bus or use a huge 4x4 to drop one kid off at school OP.

And it's almost theft proof.

We have the 4 seat version as our 2nd car. I've driven it to work on the motorway quite frequently without a single scary moment. It has crosswind assist help you being blown across the motorway. It's not going to be like a SUV of course, but generally it's fine. As for crash safety, 5 stars so as safe as many so called bigger cars.

But statistically you are very safe on a motorway. Worst case scenario you hit (or are hit) a stationary car at 70mph into the soft bit of the car (boot).
National speed limit single carriageway roads are far more dangerous. Worst case scenario you hit somebody at 60mph who is doing 60mph (120mph impact speed) into the hard part of the cars (engine).

The advantage of driving a small car at higher speed is you have to constraint far more and are more aware of potential risks. Take a look at the cars next time you see some crashes. They generally are bigger cars that people drive and don't pay attention.

Bought 2 for the kids rooms.

Wasn't this tested on Mythbusters and found to be a load of old balls?

That was a fixed wall at 100mph vs two cars at 50mph.

In my cars you are hitting cars in both situations.

But a good point made..... There are no walls to hit on a motorway!

Afraid 5 star rating is not like bigger cars, it can only be used to compare cars of similar size (same category). In a multicar accident this will be more likely a death trap (50% more likely to die in a multi-car collision in a small or micro car)!!!! So no if a large car performed like this in a multi car crash it would be lucky to get 2 stars!!!

Unfortunately because of weight, cost and economical concessions you cannot build in the crash protection afforded to bigger vehicles. Not forgetting laws of momentum that if you hit a bigger, larger, stronger object you will become the crumple zone and have more energy transferred to your mushy bone sack so also greater chance of greater injury.

It's actually high school physics that proves this to be boll***s. :-)

Let me put it this way - lighweight 12-14yr old age group boxing champion meets Muhammad Ali. Both are good in their class, but one of them will have their face destroyed with one punch, and it ain't the big guy.

Have to second this - one of the benefits of my little Abarth 500 is that I can park in tiny gaps, and those narrow spaces in multi-stories next to the bollards, where most cars wouldn't fit!

Great cheap way into a brand new commuter car. Some train passes cost more!

Do you keep the car after the two years. What about insurance. What about tax. What happens if it breaks.

Let's just get all the normal completely stupid lease questions out of the way in one post.

No, you pay, included, it's under warranty.

​comedy gold..

Can anyone find a deal on an auto? Only need 6k milage but don't mind more. The end of last quarter they were knocking about for £80 a month average over the term on a 3+23 deal

Certain cars attract certain people. My opinion may be tainted having been hit by one of these cars whose owner treats it like a bumper car and thinks it ok to park in a space not big enough for a smart car and hit neigbouring cars. I always give them a wide berth in traffic , as their owners appear to drive like idiots too .

For those critics about safety. I suggest you actually look into the technology that's gone into these. They are designed from the ground up to be safer than an average much larger car.

They bounce off brick walls depending on the angle. If rammed from the back, the engine drops into the ground and forces the energy into the ground.

Take a look. These are much safer than your average corsa etc.
