Overall

Good: NOTE: DISCONTINUED IN AUSTRALIA FEB 2010. A good value coupe with great ride & handling. Has few true competitors.

Not so Good: It’s fairly unremarkable. Poor fuel economy. It’s getting old now and we’d much rather Hyundai fast-tracked their tasty new rear-wheel drive coupe to Australia.

Design and Engineering

Good : It’s got a sporty design that looks good from most angles… This old design is holding up surprisingly well; however, it has had two facelifts since it was launched.

Not so good : More show than go. We don’t love the ugly door mirror design.

Interior and Styling

Good : Nice low seating position and funky round air vents (just like the first Audi TT).

Not so good : The ‘nice low seating position’ is a poor driving position. The plastic quality is nowhere near premium. The rear ¾ vision from the driver seat is terrible…plus the tiny rear seats are useless for adults. If you’re over 6 foot tall good luck getting comfortable…

Performance

Good : The 2.7L V6 engine produces a sweet note from the dual exhaust. There’s a 6-speed manual on offer with great clutch feel.

Not so good : The V6’s performance is unremarkable (only 123kW) yet you’ve still got to pay for 6-cylinder fuel economy. It’s slower than every 4-cyl Hot Hatch. The auto transmission is an old school 4-speed.

Ride and Handling

Good : The chassis handles nicely and the steering inspires confidence for the driver. Overall smooth ride and quite refined at high speeds.

Not so good : Brakes aren’t worthy of a sports car.

Buying and Owning

Good : Inexpensive pricing. Generous five-year/unlimited kilometre warranty.

Not so good : It’s cheap, but you’ll spend what you save on filling the tank.
