I took delivery of my Chevrolet Spark 2 weeks ago and I've covered a lot of the M1 on several occasions. This car has to be driven hard but when it is, it so easily keeps up with anyone else. I love my little car. Has all the creature comforts and happily trundles on motorway at 80mph. It's not a family car but as a single person it suits me perfectly. £30 to tax for the year, very low insurance and fantastic on fuel. It has all the mod cons - CD, USB, AUX, electric windows, air-con, central locking and a fantastic smart interior. I highly recommend it - it's easy to park, a breeze to drive in cities nipping in and out. Love my Chevy.

The reviews did make me wary of this car... But it is great. Okay so it isn't the fastest car and it is noisy at 70mph but it is a city car. Great MPG, nice to drive, cheap tax and Insurance and cheap new Continental tyres. Would have been nice to come with a spare tyre but overall a great car with quirky looks.

Wouldn't appeal to speed-freaks or 'look at me i've got a flashy big car' types but then we don't have to spend £70 to fill up or £150 a tyre either.

This car has to be the worst car I have ever driven! The gears are awful to use, it can’t take a hill if you can’t get speed up. It is useless at cornering, noisy in 5 gear. The seating in the back is pointless as there is no leg room. It’s cheaply made and feels like a tin can on wheels. And to top all of this the clutch pedal is made of plastic which snapped off !!! I think Tonka toys would make a more robust car.

Just acceptable as a rental in town. Lacks basic features. Stupid airbag light stays on all the time and steering wheel partially blocks view of speedo. Noisy engine. Overall I would not buy this car.
