The five door version commands a £585 premium over the three door. Power comes from a 79bhp, 97lb ft, 1.4 petrol engine mated to a six-speed manual transmission. The Twist will accelerate to 62 mph from rest in 13.9 seconds and go on to a top speed of 107mph. It has combined economy of 44.1mpg and CO2 emissions of 149 g/km.

Standard equipment includes 16in Atlanta alloy wheels, an RCD 310 radio system with MDI multimedia connectivity and safety kit including ABS, ESP and seven airbags.

It sounds a good buy to me, with all the essentials and proven technology which should achieve the published figures (unlike the 1.2 version you tested) We will certainly be looking at it seriously as a replacement for the Almera.

hmmm,i could buy this underpowered box(even if it comes with an!) or a new octavia vrs for a couple of grand more(from broadspeed or the like) do the math!

Does anybody actually buy anything with broadspeed or just use them to beat dealers up on price?

Ive never understood how these brokers make a living?
