I have a 1.4 pop star and it's fantastic .....I got rid of a BMW 330 convertible and I don't miss it at all. I prefer the Fiat!...Smooth quite quick considering the engine only a1.4 but in sport mode it really flies. Comfy seats stylish looking and nice steering. How anyone can hate it is beyond me. Not had a negative reaction from any friends or family. Most thought it was much better than the similar Renault Captur/Nissan Juke.
