AT A GLANCE

no sur­prise re­ally when its di­men­sions are 3.54m long x 1.48m tall, hence the afore­men­tioned short-lived mo­ment of alarm.

I was rapt with one safety fea­ture in par­tic­u­lar, the City Emer­gency Brak­ing sys­tem, a laser-guided sys­tem that is de­signed to pre­vent you from hit­ting un­seen or un­ex­pected ob­jects at speeds be­tween five to 30km/h — nice. This won’t work with bin­gles at high­way speeds or in par­tic­u­larly in­clement weather but is a real piece of ‘‘mind thing’’ around the metro BODY: Avail­able in three and four-door hatch ENGINE: 1.0-litre three-cylin­der in­line petrol engine POWER: 55kW/92Nm SAFETY RAT­ING: 5-star ANCAP WEIGHT: 880kg TRANS­MIS­SION: 5-speed man­ual trans­mis­sion, front wheel drive ECON­OMY: 4.3L/100km area or in tight park­ing spots. This car has a heck of a lot go­ing for it and is priced to sell start­ing at just $16,990 drive away. It’s the kind of ve­hi­cle you would buy in a heart­beat for your daugh­ter or as a sec­ond fam­ily car, so ar­range a test drive with Pete or Louise down at Bar­ra­mundi Volk­swa­gen on the Stu­art High- way (just up from the Win­nel­lie Post Of­fice). They would be more than happy to an­swer any ques­tions.

Three words to sum­marise: Amaz­ing fun ride.
