The ride is very good and the cornering excellent for a car of this type. I like the interior design and find the car spacious and comfortable. The instruments are most pleasing. The engine is superb in providing good lugging power with free-revving zip when required. The gearchange is superb and high fifth gives relaxed cruising. The styling is pleasantly functional. It is hard to identify a better car of its type and time. It’s just a pity more people didn’t buy them because if they had spares would be more plentiful and therefore cheaper. Not many pattern parts are available.

Small and economical, new ones are better than Prius and much cheaper, I hope the quality has improved and the handling, the older ones I have been in have rattled so much and been so noisy that my old 1972 Austin Maxi seemed like a Rolls after travelling in the Daihatsu`s, I might consider a Charade or similar, but am still inclined towards a Citroen for a small economy car.

I bought this car to use as a runaround. It is pretty cheap and I guess that you get what you pay for. The term basic sums up the Charade pretty well but the fuel economy could make this an appealing proposition for some drivers. I think that a Citroen C1 or Toyota Aygo may have been a better choice.

I’m very pleased with my car, it’s proved itself to be very reliable and is very cheap to run. For a car of it’s price you get everything you need and whilst the interior is best described as practical, it is certainly comfortable.
