I'm a newbie thinking of importing one of these but I can't seem to find much info regarding this car. What little I have been able to find out is quite conflicting. As far as I am aware, actual factwise it came out in 2006 and is a 2nd generation Sirion. It has 936cc engine with 133bhp and weighs under 1000kg
I've read on one review the handling is rubbish and the 0-60 is approx 9secs or over 11secs for the D-sport variant and the X4 does 33mpg average. Yet elsewhere I've read the handling and suspension is good and 0-60 is around 6.6secs, and if tuned further, even less! Mpg as 50mpg. Which of these comments is true? I'm confused!?!
Is there a specific model/chassis code I need to quote when enquiring with importers.
I had a look on one importer site (Bonsaicars) which showed two Boon 4wd cars as available to purchase at auction. But the pics of both the cars showed a bonnet with no scoop. If it's a turbo wouldn't it need the scoop to cool the engine? Is the auction site putting up a standard sirion as the X4 when it's not?
Also are the boon/storia/passo/sirion/myvi se the same thing, or is the Boon the only one with a 4wd option?
Any info would be much appreciated. Thanks
