I compared all SIX cars in this range. All have similar size & engine power. THIS has by far the higher torque. It is by far the cheapest & sporty looking. EXTREME value for money. Add to that, it is from the stable of the largest auto seller of the world, giving you German quality. Along with that, it is the only car in this class with a TURBO engine. In my humble opinion, one NEED NOT spend a penny more to get the IDEAL car, money being of no consequence, high or low.
