99bhp from 1000cc is nice engineering. But mivec V6 is a bit gutless.
An ex-girlfriend had one. They look really nice, but they're not fast.
I had a Calibra Turbo (204bhp), and used to drive her FTO now and then, and it felt cheap and nasty to drive. Automatic is even worse.
However, I'd have one purely for the looks (and V6 sound) alone. Who cares, it's the nicest looking car you can buy for the money.
