Wait Wait Wait... You prefer a daewoo matiz over a seicento
How is that even possible? Infact ignore that question.

Please explain the merits of a daewoo matiz - drove one for a couple of days once and i struggle to come up with a single reason to like a matiz. Erm...... Because they are cheap is all i got....

Well, unlike that particular seicento, all UK spec Matiz models had power steering and 2 airbags, lol! I loved my Matiz, it was a nice little car! I believe the original design for the Matiz was actually commissioned by Fiat, who decided against it in the end, so Daewoo snapped the design up, added an extra pair of doors, thus creating the Matiz, lol!

Re: FIAT Seicento Sporting

well each to their own i suppose, i found it to be possibly the worst car i ever driven. non-PAS seicento's are pretty rare too, only the first few cars seemed to be non-PAS.

Re: FIAT Seicento Sporting

The prototype Matiz was originally going to replace the Cinquecento.



So technically we're all right.

For me personally, the worst car I have ever driven, by a million miles, was a Peugeot 206. My 1st driving instructors' car, it left me with no desire to ever drive another Peugeot as long as I live, lol! And yep, it was 1 of the 1st seicentos. Before buying the Matiz, I looked at 3 Fiats, and 2 Citroen Saxos. I can still very easily remember the reg plates of the 3 Fiats, but I've completely forgotten the registrations of the Saxos, lol!

Re: FIAT Seicento Sporting

I not driven a 206 other than moving my cousins around the drive - will grant you it was hateful but not enough for me to give it my worst car award lol.

I bought the Matiz to learn to drive in, and after driving my tiny Matiz, the diesel 206 felt like a fat lump of lard, lol!

This is exactly how I felt about my ex's Grande compared to my Seicento.

At least the Grande Punto is a very good car to drive, unlike that 206. Everything about it was bl00dy awful, lol!

Continuing with the French theme, my "hateful" car is the base model 1.1 Citroen C2 my old instructor had, the car i passed my test in.

Doors weigh a ton yet are paper thin and tinny to close, the dash is hard, shiney and doesn't fit (they crammed the c3's dash into a city car), the whole interior is cheap and boomy due to poor insulation, The brakes are an on off switch, the electric steering gives no feel anywhere and maximum assistance at over 50mph and the engine is so gutless that i maxed it out on a barely uphill stretch of motorway at 63mph! My foot was about through the floor, in 4th or 5th, no difference, 63 was all it had to give in 4th and the lack of torque would make it drop to 57mph in 5th.

And appalling pile of Merde.

For a comparison, an unmodden cinq sporting can easily hit 70 on the same stretch of road with over 40kilos of tools and 3 people onboard.

To be fair though, I'd feel far, far safer in a C2.

Until somebody rear ended you because you tried to gently slow down for some traffic lights but ended up doing an emergency stop instead because of the on/off brake pedal.

I'd rather take my chances wielding a rusty razor at my ******** than get behind the wheel of another c2.
