    Guessing that's the non turb? Couple of people I know have had them, strong engines and running costs are not too bad. Although as above their as fast as a 1.4 corsa lol

    I know they aren't the quickest of Cars but I like scoobs and the 4wd appeals to me, I'm driving a 1.6 astra so I'm hardly going anywhere in a hurry at the moment.

    your astra will be faster! when i had an impreza i bought a gl estate wrx lookalike as a van... a 1200 merit corsa would outdrag it and its mpg was unbelieveably bad!

    I like them, not fast in comparison to the turbo but nice looking and the 2.0 is still a boxer engine so same sound (smaller engined imprezas don't).

    They aren't performance cars, as long as that doesn't bother you it's a nice choice IMO

    Haha I doubt it would tbh and mpg isn't too much if a problem as long as it isn't as bad as my old Z20LET Corsa lol

    There are probably better cars for the money though I guess is the thing.

    If you fancy a wrx, Sti or an Evo in the future apparently owning one of these can help with experience

    As mentioned by others though rather slow for what they are, and quite thirsty on the fuel as well.

    Good for donuts in the snow though.

    Yeah mate seems a lot of people saying they are slow but as said I'm not after anything fast yet, just want to have a fairly nice car and I like the idea of awd too also got a rough quote online and it came out 35quid more a month than astra but still a lot less than my old corsa so I'm happy

    Just rang my insurance up and they wanted me to pay a extra 400+ pound extra frontage Subaru meaning my monthly payments go up from 116 to 171 so I asked for it cheaper they said not a problem and did it for 120 a month haha madness
