They are great little cars, so easy to drive around town, but can easily hold their own on motorways etc. I have the UP!'s sister car, the Skoda Citigo (Colour Edition) and people are surprised home roomy they are inside and also how nippy they are on the road. Good choice

I actually quite like the seats, and they're pretty comfortable, but they are very subjective.

Nice car OP! Got a soft spot for these after having one as a courtesy car

Looks great!

Does fuel 'go off' after 18 months? - theoretically at that mileage it could still have the original juice in it!?!

You realize that for most journeys a small basic car with decent interior space and good visability is better suited to 99% of daily use than a bigger car with loads of gizmo's.

All these cars with driver aids etc only have them because the cars are too big in the first place for town driving.

Hyundai i10's are great little cards too.

The OH’s dad got a Skoda Citigo a few years ago. At the time, me and the GF laughed at it and thought what an awful thing. We just thought that he was being tight as he does earn over 60k. Initially, I wouldn't have picked the 60ps engine but it really does do an ample job in this car and we've covered a good few varied routes: hilly, dual carriageways etc.

It's very true that simplicity makes a lot of sense, the Corsa really helped us think about what we wanted from the car. The only thing that I would’nt have minded was a trip computer but this one is only one step up from the lowest spec. It's so easy to clean, no fancy recesses or grills, which is a bonus. It also makes the garage seem a lot bigger lol.

The Fortaleza alloys are just about right on it (or rather the GF), we didn't want anything too large or any diamond cut rims. Shouldn't be too easy to kerb these ones with their size. The seats are quite comfy, and I reckon they'll wear better than the ones in the Corsa.

I do think that the Up GTI would be a fun car to drive judging by this, although I wouldn't say it's really a full-on GTI; 14k seems like a lot but then again the price of each new model seems to jump up. Fuel was 72p a litre when I got on the road in 2003, so could be a good choice for cut-price thrills. Last year I drove just 4k miles in the ST, as we tend to grab take the most economical vehicle unless it's a nice day or a good driving route/road.

Good point re the fuel, as I had never even thought about it. It had a quarter of a tank on collection so in theory it could have been brimmed when new and ran on that ever since. We've brimmed it up now though.
