My current car is on the heavy side for a 1.3. About 1.2 tons.

The motor supposedly made 85 horses when new. If I had to guess how much it makes now... I'd say... uh... forty?

Takes forever to hit 60... about fifteen seconds with a dump-clutch start.


Doesn't matter. I never have issues merging into traffic.


My previous service vehicle was worse. A two ton diesel truck with about 75 horses. Half-a-minute to 60 mph. Could not overtake anything on a two-way two lane.

Got great mileage, though.
