The acceleration is okay, but not as good as you expected with the 1.8l engine. The 1.4l with MT has much more torque and the diesel engines give it more power at low speeds anyway. 180km/h was the given high speed for this version. Which took some time to reach.
All in all, it's not exactly what I've been looking for. Especially with the fuel consumption. Again, the 1.4l engine will be much stronger and uses less fuel. Yes, it's a decent car and many people will have a lot of fun with it. Especially with the price. These are really low for such a versatile car.
I'm waiting for the Chevrolet Trax, which is a totally different car, but with the nice interior, a bit like the Orlando, and a 4x4 with 9.4secs/60mph, I'll give it a shot.
