Definitely yes. But would chose one 100hp with start stop.

I wish I'd gone for the 110 BHP turbo 1.2, but the only Flair they had I could drive away that day ( and I needed one that weekend) was the all black 82bhp , not that I'm complaining, I love it, I just wanted that little bit more zip with a full car and full boot when overtaking on the motorway, other than that, the 82bhp performs very, very well, so yes, yes, and very much yes, I would buy again!

Definitely, yes! I have driven it during the 2 weeks since I got it more than 1,000 Km on urban crowded roads and on highways which are regrettably also crowded most of the time in our country. It took me several days to get used to the manual gearbox, as I have driven the last 20 years with automatic ones. (My last car was a Citroen C3 diesel). I love the shape and colour (1.2 Puretech 110 Turbo Yellow with Black Airbumps and Habana interior) and the wide and soft seats. On highways the fuel consumption was 20 Km/l, as expected. In short, I would buy it again!

Mine is aproaching 20.000 KM (12.500 Miles), and that little 1,2 82 hp petrol with etg is GREAT....I love it, and i know, that there are better shifting gear boxes out there, but they all cost on the fuel....

And with time, it has increased the milage...Yesterday i drove at a relaxed pace (100 km/h - 62 mph) with the AC on full and 4 persons in the car.....I did 20 km/l (47 Mpg)...that's nice.

Yes, good car but 2 things aren't getting any better with age (of the car :shock: ) : seats and driving position! There's no excuse on a £17K car to not have steering column adjustment. It's on my missus's basic 2008 which has far more comfy seats and steering adjust. Which is a crying shame on a Citroen. Still, i thought i'd get used to it. Other than that, a cracking little car - glad i went for the 110, it's nippy enough for some fun driving.

I have a Cactus BlueHDi 100 as a daily driver (I bought it new in august 2014) and it has now covered 50000 Km (31000 miles) completely without any problems. It's a cracking car and for det price I think it represent a great value. It's extremely comfy compared to other cars in this price segment (at least if you want a new car) and it offers a lot of space. I really like the soft seats and the driving position is good for me, but the steering column should have been adjustable (reach). On the other hand I don't think many other cars in this price segment have that. The fuel economy is good too. Yesterday I towed a 500 Kg trailer 700 Km (434 miles) mainly on motorways at 100 Km/h (62 mph) and managed 18-19 Km/l (50 mpg). When driving without a trailer I usually manage 25-26 Km/l (70 mpg). I would definitely buy a Cactus BlueHDi 100 again.

If the box won't stay in manual there is a fault. Might be a good idea to get it to the agent.

I have a 1.2 82bhp flair, with panoramic roof. What's extra on the Flair Edition?
