1998 Seat ArosaReview

Fantastic Little Small Car — I love my little 1.7 SDI diesel Arosa (or Arouser, as we nicknamed it). Being a VW parts bin car, build quality is superb - it feels solid and well put-together - and in over 5 years and 40k miles it's never let me down once. The economy from the 1.7 litre naturally aspirated diesel is superb; I regularly get 65mpg. Performance in town is good thanks to the low-down torque, but it runs out of puff on the motorways. Thanks to the small size and power steering, it's a doddle to park and fling around town. The handling is predictable and understeery, but it lets you know what grip you've got and it's entertaining enough.

Pros: Diesel economy, build quality, cheap to insure and run, perfect town car.

Cons: Not the fastest or most fun
