It's reliable, modern looking, and a nearly new example will confer the peace-of-mind that made it such an attractive new buy. It's not quite as nippy as some have made out - don't try to pull out unless you've got plenty of time. It's a simple vehicle, but reliable and although the interior does feel as if it's built down to a price, there's nothing particularly offensive in there and it should age fairly well.

Around town, however, it's quite nippy enough, with sharp, direct steering and excellent all-round visibility. Certainly, this 50bhp three-cylinder engine was pretty advanced dramatically so compared to some of the company's other efforts. Standard equipment on the entry-level SE model runs to twin front airbags, power steering, a two-speaker stereo and metallic paint.
This super mini has been a real bargain - it's so cheap to buy and run that who could complain. It would be a great first car for any new drivers. Subscribe to our newsletter Subscribe to What Car?
Have yet to take on motorways etc but got it up to 60 on single track A road - was fine!
Competing Vehicles. Did you know the most popular review for the Matiz range is the Chevrolet Matiz review. I would definitely buy another if they still made them.
As a used buy it's possible to drive these costs down still further and still have one of the cheekiest Citycars on the road.
