It would be interesting to know how the 1 litre engine performs on hills, do you need to change down and give it a lot of revs?

I have the 1.0 ltr tit x and every trip I do to Wales from London it's been a pleasure. I had the 1.6 fiesta 120 titanium
before and although that was a lovely car to drive the focus outclass it for comfort and power no problem going up hill in 6th gear and cruises at 75 and 80 with only 2700 revs . Mileage just creeping into 45 and 46 mpg as the engine eases in 4.500 miles to date.
Also when travelling up the Heads of the valley roads in Wales pulls up the hills in 6th 60 and 70 mph no problems

I was watching 5th gear last night, and it got a very good review. They even put it up against its bigger brother, the 1.6 petrol, and it smashed it, all the way to 100mph. So I think it should be a cracking car.

Still prefer top gear anyway, you know that they're going to take the mickey and mess around plus Vicky butler Henderson is starting to look as rough as dogs nowadays. ;)
