First look at it and it looks similar to a Toyota Yaris. Looks like a pretty decent car. We don't have that in the US. I would get either a Mazda 3 or 6 sedan if I got a Mazda.

its the insurance costs which im thinking of here.. the car is offered with a years free insurance, and it works out at 20 a month more to buy a brand new car rather than insure the one ive got at the moment.. which i figure i will save in the long run on reliability etc..

The year of free insurance sounds like a great deal...We don't have that particular car here in the states but the specs are pretty good. Gets SICK gas mileage which is always a plus...I'm more of a big engine import tuner car guy myself but if i was looking for a good reliable everyday car that is a great option not to mention the world car of the year for 2008...Great price as well... Here in the US you will never find a car that comes with a free years insurance is that something that happens a lot over there or is it something special with that car?

the years free insurance is a pretty common offer on brand new cars over here.. its a way for young drivers to be able to buy the car, insurance premiums for young drivers over here are extortionate, over the last year i paid 1300/$2600 for a years insurance on a 1.9 diesel..which is pretty pricey.. so i like the idea of a brand new car for pretty much the same monthly payment i would be making anyway
