Design & Engineering
Yes it is old wine in new bottle but still tastes good. Looks can be deceptive. It certainly requires power steering which can be an option along with music system. Height could have been further reduced. Tyre size should be 14inches instead of 13 inches used. Better quality plastics and insulation.
Yes it can be more comfy. Front seat is ok but rear is basic. cost cutting is what the doctor ordered to reduce the flab(cost)
Engine & Gearbox
Engine is fine quite revy. I took for long drive and stable at 90-100 kmph. Gear box you need to get used but good
Ride Quality & Comfort
Bumpy but u get used to it. On level roads it it fine.
