hey what’s up guys Syed here and today i
am

0:00:08.639,0:00:14.000
in the Renault Megane RS280
and i have the owner Kathir right beside

0:00:14.000,0:00:17.199
me okay so some quick specs for this car off the top of

0:00:17.199,0:00:21.520
my head this car comes with a 1.8 liter
turbocharged engine as compared to the

0:00:21.520,0:00:24.000
two liter that came in the previous
generations

0:00:24.000,0:00:26.480
yeah even though the car is down on
engine size compared to the previous

0:00:26.480,0:00:30.080
generations the power has been increased
to about 276 i believe

0:00:30.080,0:00:34.079
276 somewhere around there
yeah and if i’m correct four hundred

0:00:34.079,0:00:37.680
close to four hundred torque like 380/390 Nm of torque

0:00:37.680,0:00:41.600
yeah and of course the looks and
everything radically different from the

0:00:41.600,0:00:45.600
previous generation and i think it’s
a much better looking car right now also

0:00:45.600,0:00:49.840
the first generation came in like three
doors right yeah it was only a 3 door 2 liter

0:00:49.840,0:00:52.879
turbo very standard yeah and now this car

0:00:52.879,0:00:56.320
comes in a five door so it’s more practical

0:00:56.320,0:01:01.520
yeah and also uh previous generations
only came with a manual whereas this one

0:01:01.520,0:01:04.000
this is the first generation to get an
automatic transmission

0:01:04.000,0:01:07.600
which is the one we have in this car
today so oh and one more thing

0:01:07.600,0:01:12.000
actually two more things uh this car has
a four wheel steering right yes yeah so

0:01:12.000,0:01:14.159
the rear wheels will actually steer together

0:01:14.159,0:01:16.560
the front wheels which is quite
interesting

0:01:16.560,0:01:20.400
and uh one more thing also this car
competes with like the gti

0:01:20.400,0:01:24.560
the type r but i looked up the prices and

0:01:24.560,0:01:28.640
this car is actually okay compared with
type r right this is about i think 20k

0:01:28.640,0:01:32.400
cheaper than the type r something like that
that so it’s quite in an attractive

0:01:32.400,0:01:34.900
price range okay

0:01:34.900,0:01:38.000
hey guys so i just
want to quickly promote this megane

0:01:38.079,0:01:42.240
owner’s family restaurant which is
located at sembawang road it’s called

0:01:42.240,0:01:45.119
the patio sg this is the menu and it’s not halal

0:01:45.119,0:01:48.799
certified but they do have a satay stall
within the restaurant which

0:01:48.799,0:01:52.399
is halal certified so yeah you can check
it out i’ll put the details in the

0:01:52.399,0:01:54.000
description below

0:02:00.000,0:02:04.640
maybe Kathir u wanna share with us like you know why you bought this car and also you have an

0:02:04.640,0:02:06.719
interesting car history maybe you can
share

0:02:06.719,0:02:10.720
with us as well okay maybe i’ll start with
why i bought this car i think

0:02:10.720,0:02:13.920
i’ve always been someone who likes hot
hatchbacks

0:02:13.920,0:02:17.840
i’ve had a history of hot hatchbacks i
actually had the r26 which is the

0:02:17.840,0:02:21.520
megane 2rs okay um really loved the car drove it

0:02:21.520,0:02:24.160
till the grave i scrapped the car i think or i think

0:02:24.160,0:02:27.760
rather it got exported because it had such a high paper value i

0:02:27.760,0:02:32.400
decided not to renew COE for that one
i see then so i always had this

0:02:32.400,0:02:35.680
history with hatchbacks and then
obviously the looks of this car was

0:02:35.680,0:02:39.120
something that I was attracted to i think
for singapore roads it kind of makes a

0:02:39.120,0:02:43.040
lot of sense you know just now sorry just just now

0:02:43.040,0:02:47.599
when he was driving his car to meet me right we passed by a

0:02:47.599,0:02:51.280
restaurant the indian muslim restaurant yeah yeah and

0:02:51.280,0:02:54.480
there was a family like eating and they
were just turning their heads to look at

0:02:54.480,0:02:57.760
the car i swear it’s like even the kid you know

0:02:57.760,0:03:00.879
small kid also turning me is it i i don’t know whether it’s the look itself

0:03:00.879,0:03:05.280
or it’s the color that’s like yeah i think i think the looks is good

0:03:05.280,0:03:08.480
and then for singapore roads i find that
u know hot hatchbacks are very practical

0:03:08.480,0:03:12.959
they’re quick carry enough passengers and so i guess

0:03:12.959,0:03:17.120
i’m at the age whereby i decided to be a
bit more practical so my history of cars

0:03:17.120,0:03:19.920
is prior to this i was actually driving uh

0:03:19.920,0:03:22.959
i know a lot of people go what the hell
are you doing buying this car u know

0:03:22.959,0:03:26.799
i was driving a r35 gtr

0:03:27.519,0:03:31.360
and then prior to that i also had a e89
z4

0:03:31.360,0:03:35.440
i i bought the r35 really because it’s
one of those you know cars that you put

0:03:35.440,0:03:40.080
up on your poster it’s kind of a dream car thing and

0:03:40.080,0:03:43.120
and it you know with the coe you know
being renewed and stuff like that it

0:03:43.120,0:03:47.280
became a bit more affordable for me
so that’s why i had to own it i owned it

0:03:47.280,0:03:51.280
i enjoyed it but to be honest i’m not a person who’s

0:03:51.280,0:03:53.599
like so well to do that i could actually
you know

0:03:53.599,0:03:57.519
continue to keep it beyond like because
i think i at the point i sold it it was 13

0:03:57.519,0:03:59.920
years old already it’s getting a bit aging you know

0:03:59.920,0:04:02.560
maintenance cost starts to go up road
tax starts to go up

0:04:02.560,0:04:07.519
oh yeah yeah so i i guess i and with
this car being launched i was like

0:04:07.519,0:04:11.760
you know what i think it’s it’s time lah
it’s time to to get sensible and go back

0:04:11.760,0:04:16.479
to a hatchback and i’m
quite happy but why why this car why not

0:04:16.479,0:04:20.400
like a type r or you know golf gti golf r?

0:04:20.400,0:04:23.440
okay you’d get a very biased opinion
from me because yeah

0:04:23.440,0:04:28.080
i like renault a lot i like because of my history the company i

0:04:28.080,0:04:31.520
really like them the other cars i was
looking at i’ve got a couple of friends

0:04:31.520,0:04:35.280
who own cupras so i was looking at the cupra as well i

0:04:35.280,0:04:37.919
was looking at the type r i was looking
at the gti

0:04:37.919,0:04:43.040
if i really stretch my budget at that
point the mk 7.5 golf r

0:04:43.040,0:04:46.000
was also something that i looked at it
was a bit more expensive than this i

0:04:46.000,0:04:48.880
must say but you know putting it all into a

0:04:48.880,0:04:52.800
package the cc the power the way it feels inside and what you get

0:04:52.800,0:04:55.120
for your money because most of what you
see over here is

0:04:55.120,0:04:58.720
what you get it’s a very standard
package whereas on some other cars it’s

0:04:58.720,0:05:03.840
all optional add-ons the bucket seats the four-wheel steering

0:05:03.840,0:05:06.880
um you know your reverse camera your
sensors your rain

0:05:06.880,0:05:10.479
activated wipers so it’s very well
specced yeah

0:05:10.479,0:05:14.080
so you don’t have to pay much for
options yeah really not much i think

0:05:14.080,0:05:17.840
it’s only the color you have to pay
more for how much more is this orange i

0:05:17.840,0:05:20.720
think the color they charge an
additional three or four thousand oh it

0:05:20.720,0:05:23.360
sounds about yeah yeah normal yeah kind of made sense

0:05:23.360,0:05:28.639
to me like i like the color so yeah
so that’s why i went for this car and uh

0:05:28.639,0:05:33.120
the test drive itself the way it corners
is it’s really something else

0:05:33.120,0:05:38.960
i think if you if you get a chance to do
push the car do push it yes

0:05:38.960,0:05:42.080
quite confident inspiring because of
that four wheeling

0:05:42.080,0:05:46.880
it’s a very different sensation yeah so
that’s why i bought the car

0:05:46.880,0:05:49.000
i like your explanation

0:05:55.840,0:05:59.680
so what do you like about your car okay
obviously the looks is something that i

0:05:59.680,0:06:02.800
look forward to
um i think i like the interior a lot the

0:06:02.800,0:06:07.600
cabin is quite a nice place to be in i love the driving position

0:06:07.600,0:06:10.880
yeah the driving position the seats the
way it bolsters you yes

0:06:10.880,0:06:14.160
every time you get in and it’s a bit of
a special feeling

0:06:14.160,0:06:17.840
you know that you’re in something
different yes and others

0:06:17.840,0:06:21.840
yeah i think the last thing is that it’s
so uncommon on the road yes that um

0:06:21.840,0:06:25.840
i always like holding on to things that
are very uncommon on the road like

0:06:25.840,0:06:29.120
you know it gives you that sense of like
being special on the road at an

0:06:29.120,0:06:32.960
affordable price bracket i mean i can’t
if i could i’ll buy a 458 speciale or a

0:06:32.960,0:06:37.199
488 pista or something like that but
i can’t afford it so i think this is the

0:06:37.199,0:06:40.720
really the next best thing for me. oh another megane!

0:06:40.800,0:06:43.919
but the color not the same yeah but it’s
not like yeah it’s just the gt

0:06:43.919,0:06:49.919
yeah again um if you don’t mind right
how much did you pay for this car and um

0:06:49.919,0:06:54.160
you know like what was there a promotion or i think i

0:06:54.160,0:06:56.319
got like probably like 10k knocked off
the

0:06:56.319,0:06:59.360
the price uh that i offered it’s about
one seven something?

0:06:59.360,0:07:02.960
160 plus it’s like they will offer you
and you can i mean the

0:07:02.960,0:07:08.080
wearnes won’t kill me but i didn’t have to
sign an nda for it so it’s about there

0:07:08.080,0:07:11.280
you can i mean they’re quite aggressive
with their marketing i must say

0:07:11.280,0:07:17.120
um you can push for more warranty as
well yeah

0:07:17.120,0:07:20.560
so you can push them i think most
renault dealers overseas are pushing for

0:07:20.560,0:07:23.280
five years already so you can try your luck with them free

0:07:23.280,0:07:27.520
servicing as well so yeah so sorry what what you like

0:07:27.520,0:07:32.000
about the car? the looks and the interior

0:07:32.000,0:07:36.080
yeah and also that it has driving modes
right so it’s very

0:07:36.080,0:07:40.000
um in a good and a bad way the driving
modes are very drastic

0:07:40.000,0:07:43.759
i would say so right now you’re in
neutral okay so it’s very sedated you

0:07:43.759,0:07:46.240
don’t hear anything the exhaust is quiet the

0:07:46.240,0:07:48.800
car it moves i mean the suspension is not affected

0:07:48.800,0:07:52.000
because it’s it’s fixed it’s not adaptable actually yeah but the

0:07:52.000,0:07:58.160
the right quality is terrible actually it’s okay it’s okay i’ve been in worse

0:07:58.160,0:08:01.759
yeah so so um i i think i like the
driving modes like you

0:08:01.759,0:08:06.319
if you want to be to be aggressive with
it or you want to be a proper hooligan

0:08:06.319,0:08:09.840
you put it in the sport or race and
it really starts to get quite quite a

0:08:09.840,0:08:13.840
ruckus in here like i like that as well the different driving

0:08:13.840,0:08:18.080
characteristics correct
yeah yeah so are any mods on this car no

0:08:18.080,0:08:20.560
no no no no

0:08:21.199,0:08:24.720
no yeah so um how long have you owned the car?

0:08:24.720,0:08:29.039
i’ve had the car for about a year now oh
yeah one year okay no you don’t plan to

0:08:29.039,0:08:32.240
like mod it? um maybe in the future when maybe the

0:08:32.240,0:08:36.719
warranty starts to run out
oh yeah yeah that that too so um i

0:08:36.719,0:08:39.360
don’t know how
sticky wearnes will be if i were to put on

0:08:39.360,0:08:43.279
a tune and stuff like that but if i declare it they should be okay yeah um

0:08:43.279,0:08:45.720
but there are people overseas are running well over

0:08:45.720,0:08:50.320
340 horsepower already on the trophy models but the trophy

0:08:50.320,0:08:53.680
models is slightly different it has a
slightly different turbo i see yeah

0:08:53.680,0:08:57.040
so i mean a bit more powerful
uh yeah i mean the stock trophy is about

0:08:57.040,0:08:59.200
300 they’re just about to bring it in by
the way

0:08:59.200,0:09:03.120
oh yeah and the trophy comes in manual
which is a bit of a bummer because i

0:09:03.120,0:09:05.839
would have liked the manual okay okay what was

0:09:05.839,0:09:08.880
your fuel consumption like if you don’t
mind sharing

0:09:08.880,0:09:12.640
okay so the fuel consumption to be
honest for a 1.8 liter car

0:09:12.640,0:09:18.399
i find because i’m not that impressive
i think right now on this tank i’ll

0:09:18.399,0:09:22.080
probably be a very
averaging slightly above 10 kilometers

0:09:22.080,0:09:24.880
per liter oh that’s about normal yeah but it’s

0:09:24.880,0:09:27.680
very small yeah and the small is 1.8 and i’ve been

0:09:27.680,0:09:31.920
driving it very sedately like i’ve been
putting it in neutral and driving it

0:09:31.920,0:09:35.680
uh sedate if you really start to drive
it like how a hot hatch should be driven

0:09:35.680,0:09:38.720
not like a hooligan but you know like
some spirited driving here and there

0:09:38.720,0:09:41.839
you’ll be getting only like eight or
nine i think which

0:09:41.839,0:09:44.880
which for a small tank i find not not
very good so

0:09:44.880,0:09:48.240
i was hoping you’d do a bit better when you drive sedately but

0:09:48.240,0:09:51.920
it doesn’t but it’s just a very small
quirk i mean a small small thing for

0:09:51.920,0:09:55.279
me yeah okay then uh what do you dislike about your

0:09:55.279,0:09:59.680
car? okay i’m being overtaken by a mazda 5

0:09:59.680,0:10:07.519
mpv by the way yeah i think i don’t like this infotainment

0:10:07.519,0:10:10.800
system
here because all the even the aircon

0:10:10.800,0:10:15.600
controls and everything as you can see
you have to go in here to do it and it’s

0:10:15.600,0:10:20.079
not the best system i think it can be laggy it’s a bit laggy

0:10:20.079,0:10:23.760
so sorry i turned on the radio by
accident it’s a bit laggy and it’s not

0:10:23.760,0:10:27.440
the best so that that part i really
don’t like it and the same way i said

0:10:27.440,0:10:30.240
that the um you know the driving modes are quite

0:10:30.240,0:10:33.760
drastic yeah i also don’t like it
because it’s so drastic because i can’t

0:10:33.760,0:10:36.640
find a sweet spot a sweet spot yeah it’s either

0:10:36.640,0:10:40.480
sedated or it’s loud but that’s where they have

0:10:40.480,0:10:43.120
this thing called the perso where you
can personalise yeah you can

0:10:43.120,0:10:46.079
you can personalize different things but
then i’m like too lazy to go through the

0:10:46.079,0:10:49.680
entire thing so i don’t like that as well um and then

0:10:49.680,0:10:52.880
the last small quirk i have is i think
the fuel consumption could

0:10:52.880,0:10:56.000
be better but i think people people buy
this car

0:10:56.000,0:11:01.839
yeah people who are watching this and like
you idiot u bought a hot hatch and u’re talking about fuel consumption

0:11:02.240,0:11:06.079
but i think most i have a lot more that
i like about the car than i don’t

0:11:06.079,0:11:09.519
because i did my research i you know i
watch alot of youtube videos which is how

0:11:09.519,0:11:13.040
i came across you about you know what what people are

0:11:13.040,0:11:16.320
saying about the car and and if you if
you watch even in like malaysia if you

0:11:16.320,0:11:20.160
watch evo or watch like people like YS khong they will tell you that

0:11:20.160,0:11:24.000
it’s a very capable car okay yeah this car won quite a few

0:11:24.000,0:11:28.079
awards yeah yeah
yeah yeah like if you watch like bobby

0:11:28.079,0:11:32.160
ang from evo he’s like
gleaming from ear to ear on his life

0:11:32.160,0:11:35.120
he subscribed to me by the way

0:11:35.120,0:11:38.100
ya im quite honoured

0:11:38.480,0:11:41.680
so bobby if you’re watching like you’re
part of the reason why

0:11:41.680,0:11:45.760
i bought this car because you know after
your test run you did on genting and i

0:11:45.760,0:11:49.839
saw how you how happy you were with it i
think i think

0:11:49.839,0:11:56.639
i’m quite a similar kind of person i
quite like these kind of b-roads as well

0:11:56.639,0:12:00.959
okay so uh how has your ownership
experience for this one year been like?

0:12:00.959,0:12:04.160
good very good yeah no problems no
problems

0:12:04.160,0:12:09.200
i think there was one small issue on uh
on the uh fuel pump which is a known

0:12:09.200,0:12:13.120
issue okay and you get it replaced on uh on

0:12:13.120,0:12:15.920
warranty so it’s not a major issue it’s that it’s

0:12:15.920,0:12:18.639
just that when the fuel hits a certain
level

0:12:18.639,0:12:22.959
you’d hear this high little wine like a
you know like a tibetan singing bow

0:12:22.959,0:12:27.200
like when your fuel is low at three quarter i

0:12:27.200,0:12:30.320
don’t know why it’s like like right now
yeah it was a design flaw

0:12:30.320,0:12:34.000
on on the earlier fuel pump so they
just replaced correct it’s been replaced

0:12:34.000,0:12:38.000
already and uh yeah so other than that i think it’s

0:12:38.000,0:12:41.200
been very very good yeah yeah but i do find that it’s

0:12:41.200,0:12:44.800
not the most refined ride like the ride quality yeah

0:12:44.800,0:12:48.480
it’s very hard it’s a bit harsh you can
see it here

0:12:48.480,0:12:52.399
when when you are at you know stationary
you feel like

0:12:52.399,0:12:55.839
the you can feel the engine’s vibration
as well so i

0:12:55.839,0:12:59.120
in that sense its also not the best
refined car

0:12:59.120,0:13:02.880
but but then again i mean because i’m
comparing it against like the cupra or

0:13:02.880,0:13:05.279
the gti those cars when you’re in there it’s

0:13:05.279,0:13:08.560
really very refined i find the drive is very refined on

0:13:08.560,0:13:14.320
those cars yeah but this is
this has its uh it’s charm la its quirky yeah

0:13:14.320,0:13:19.200
the looks i think make up for it
if let’s say you know someone is looking

0:13:19.200,0:13:23.920
to get this car do you have any
advice or any um anything you want to

0:13:23.920,0:13:29.120
say just like what bobby said it just
buy it just right just buy it don’t

0:13:29.120,0:13:32.480
because of the price uh yeah
it’s quite attractive i know like

0:13:32.480,0:13:36.240
renault doesn’t have a very good
following among singaporeans i mean i’m

0:13:36.240,0:13:39.920
saying this because of what i hear from
my friends and also what

0:13:39.920,0:13:43.839
i see on the road it’s not as popular as
i think it is in some other countries

0:13:43.839,0:13:46.959
but if you look at if you travel to europe

0:13:46.959,0:13:50.079
and other places around the world even
in australia you’ll see that

0:13:50.079,0:13:54.240
tons of people buy this car and buy
renault in general because it

0:13:54.240,0:13:58.560
is a good make and reputation i think in
singapore

0:13:58.560,0:14:01.360
it’s not that great i think because of
maintenance and things like that i don’t

0:14:01.360,0:14:04.800
know where you guys heard it from but
coming from a renault owner this is my

0:14:04.800,0:14:10.079
third renault and no worries whatsoever i think it’s uh

0:14:10.079,0:14:13.199
what you call it uh your in a way like
your

0:14:13.199,0:14:16.720
luck correct yeah i mean as with every
other car i mean you’d hear horror

0:14:16.720,0:14:19.920
stories about the VAG cars as well right but you still see

0:14:19.920,0:14:23.440
people buying it correct yeah so yeah like uh one good

0:14:23.440,0:14:26.160
example i have is uh you know the
sirocco i have a friend with who has a

0:14:26.160,0:14:29.040
1.4 yeah no transmission problems there you

0:14:29.040,0:14:32.880
go yeah and there was another gtr owner no

0:14:32.880,0:14:37.760
transmission problems oh yeah no yeah GTR also quite notorious for transmission overheating no transmission but it

0:14:37.760,0:14:41.360
okay so it’s a little bit of luck a

0:14:41.360,0:14:44.720
little bit of how much
you actually maintain your cars you how

0:14:44.720,0:14:48.639
much you look after them and don’t skip
service intervals don’t stinge on things

0:14:48.639,0:14:51.920
also depends i think a bit on how the
previous owner maintained correct yeah

0:14:51.920,0:14:54.399
so i mean if you go to the service
center

0:14:54.399,0:14:57.120
and you know they tell you that oh blah
blah blah has been changed maybe get a

0:14:57.120,0:14:59.920
second opinion and if you know two or three mechanics

0:14:59.920,0:15:02.639
are saying the same thing then maybe
it’s about time that you

0:15:02.639,0:15:05.600
you know you actually change it rather
than you ignore it and then that leads

0:15:05.600,0:15:08.800
to more problems in the car

0:15:09.120,0:15:13.279
no regrets no regrets perfect perfect
car for singapore roads i think yeah i

0:15:13.279,0:15:15.360
think so quick enough it’s practical
enough

0:15:15.360,0:15:20.000
yeah that’s good yeah
yeah yeah yeah it comes with start stop

0:15:20.000,0:15:24.880
by the way so it’s been you know uh
the activity for you yeah quite um okay

0:15:24.880,0:15:27.199
i mean the fuel consumption’s not that
good

0:15:27.199,0:15:30.560
a little bit of that helps as well uh
yeah but i think

0:15:30.560,0:15:33.920
uh like what you said perfect car for
singapore i i have to agree because the

0:15:33.920,0:15:36.320
engine size is not that big the road tax is a lot cheaper

0:15:36.320,0:15:39.440
yeah it’s cheaper the size also i think is

0:15:39.440,0:15:42.959
perfect it’s definitely easily fast enough you won’t

0:15:42.959,0:15:45.920
even push the car no i don’t think i don’t think even on

0:15:45.920,0:15:49.360
singapore roads you’re actually pushing
it to its limit yeah definitely

0:15:49.360,0:15:53.120
okay okay so i will track this as
well i’m looking forward to

0:15:53.120,0:15:56.000
the borders opening up and really
bringing it for track days yeah

0:15:56.000,0:15:59.360
you should but thanks so much for the very detailed

0:15:59.360,0:16:02.480
oh and apple carplay is standard too
you don’t have to pay up

0:16:02.480,0:16:06.720
don’t have to pay for car play because i
know some of the other makes you have to

0:16:06.720,0:16:09.040
top up

0:16:19.360,0:16:22.639
yeah but i mean okay like if you say
come with android auto and apple car

0:16:22.639,0:16:27.839
player it makes the this infotainment a bit more yup correct

0:16:27.839,0:16:31.279
yeah yeah yeah anyway i was saying yeah
the interior is not a luxurious interior

0:16:31.279,0:16:34.480
per say but you feel special inside this car

0:16:34.480,0:16:37.759
because you get the rs badging the red
stitching everywhere

0:16:37.759,0:16:41.600
the bucket seats the carbon fiber trims
so you know

0:16:41.600,0:16:46.639
look alike look at like trims yeah so
you know you are in something special

0:16:46.639,0:16:50.560
not a regular car um yeah so that’s another thing i i

0:16:50.560,0:16:54.079
really like about the car uh practicality also i think it’s okay

0:16:54.079,0:16:57.440
for a car of this size so uh the owner of this car is

0:16:57.440,0:17:02.079
quite tall by the way so his seat is
pushed back quite far i had to adjust

0:17:02.079,0:17:05.199
the seat uh for my driving position but even in his

0:17:05.199,0:17:09.520
driving position right i yeah i get a little bit of knee room and

0:17:09.520,0:17:12.079
i get uh quite a bit of head room as well so in

0:17:12.079,0:17:14.959
the back and the transmission tunnel
isn’t that big also

0:17:14.959,0:17:19.120
yeah so you can fit three adults i
believe yeah you can fit three adults

0:17:19.120,0:17:22.959
average size adults uh practicality um in terms of like

0:17:22.959,0:17:27.439
cubby spaces and all that
oh ok la not um you know not fabulous

0:17:27.439,0:17:30.240
but yeah not too bad not too bad for a car

0:17:30.240,0:17:35.120
this size the glove compartment the fuse box is on

0:17:35.120,0:17:39.440
the passenger side so uh yeah it eats up into the um

0:17:39.440,0:17:41.440
glovebox i don’t think you can fit like your

0:17:41.440,0:17:46.320
insurance papers and stuff like that you
can fit gloves yeah

0:17:46.320,0:17:50.720
yeah so uh overall thoughts yeah i think
it’s a fantastic car but not beginner

0:17:50.720,0:17:55.760
friendly but for the price and all that
uh yeah it’s really fantastic and any

0:17:55.760,0:18:02.080
closing thoughts yeah i think i think
for for hot hatch in this price bracket

0:18:02.080,0:18:05.360
you have very i mean if you really narrow it down it’s

0:18:05.360,0:18:08.480
really down to that that few i’m sure you know what i’m

0:18:08.480,0:18:12.240
talking yeah the golf or the cupra or this

0:18:12.240,0:18:14.400
and then then it comes down to really what you

0:18:14.400,0:18:17.520
want out of the drive are you really
crazy about 0-100

0:18:17.520,0:18:21.200
timing are you crazy about the
refinement

0:18:21.200,0:18:25.760
of how it feels to drive me personally i
prefer

0:18:25.760,0:18:29.200
the quirkiness the quirkiness yeah i
would say this car has a lot of quirks

0:18:29.200,0:18:31.600
but yeah like uh maybe sorry do you mind

0:18:31.600,0:18:34.160
sharing yeah some of the quarks will be
like for example

0:18:34.160,0:18:37.679
i’m sure you’ll be showing the engine
bay yeah it’s a bit the engine bay is a

0:18:37.679,0:18:40.880
bit messy infotainment is very strange to

0:18:40.880,0:18:44.799
use um other quirks i would say it’s like

0:18:44.799,0:18:48.240
the gearbox can be a bit
yeah you can actually stall this

0:18:48.240,0:18:52.720
automatic gearbox
um because it uh in neutral mode or

0:18:52.720,0:18:56.960
comfort it’s sometimes it’s not very smart yeah it takes a bit

0:18:56.960,0:19:00.400
uh it thinks first and then it makes the wrong decision

0:19:00.400,0:19:02.640
yeah um yeah so you can actually stall
this but

0:19:02.640,0:19:06.880
it doesn’t happen often and it’s nothing that should you should put you away from

0:19:06.880,0:19:09.039
buying this car don’t be like oh i’m saying all this or

0:19:09.039,0:19:12.640
these are all issues no it’s not it’s a
very reliable make it’s a very reliable

0:19:12.640,0:19:15.039
car we’ve been bombing around the whole of

0:19:15.039,0:19:19.840
today and you can see nothing went wrong
we’ve pushed it quite but within the

0:19:19.840,0:19:23.039
speed limit yeah so and you can see nothing went

0:19:23.039,0:19:25.360
wrong so i would say if you’re really
looking

0:19:25.360,0:19:29.039
um for a car along you know this price
bracket and you want a hot hatch i think

0:19:29.039,0:19:31.919
this is something you should seriously
consider like i’m not saying

0:19:31.919,0:19:35.760
die die but you should you should put it
in your short list you should go and

0:19:35.760,0:19:39.520
test drive it take a look at
you know like what everyone say yeah

0:19:39.520,0:19:43.120
it’s personal and test drive is free
just go and test drive but i think yeah

0:19:43.120,0:19:45.360
the price is really attractive yeah and
the look

0:19:45.360,0:19:48.640
and yeah all that and what you get for
your money most of it is standard yeah

0:19:48.640,0:19:53.280
the depre also quite uh.. 13-ish k

0:19:53.280,0:19:56.480
like i said like no optional extras so
for example your four point sensor your

0:19:56.480,0:19:59.840
reverse camera your all the other like a digital dash

0:19:59.840,0:20:03.600
there’s everything blind spot monitoring
everything comes standard yeah

0:20:03.600,0:20:07.760
so you there’s not much optional
extras that you have to pay for bucket

0:20:07.760,0:20:11.360
seats yeah yeah
19-inch rims on the car comes very

0:20:11.360,0:20:14.240
standard and it’s very very well
equipped it’s like you what you would

0:20:14.240,0:20:18.240
get in like a medium-sized german sedan oh yes

0:20:18.240,0:20:21.840
on this car already yeah

0:20:30.960,0:20:34.320
yeah so that’s about it guys thank you
so much for watching hope you enjoyed it

0:20:34.320,0:20:37.840
i’ll see you guys in the next review
