    My brother has one as he works for toyota in Derby. He has the 2.0 d4d engine and he doesnt like it at all. Theres plenty of gadgets in it ie keyless entry and start but he says the handling is rubbish and its just too small for him, his missus and 2 kids. He wished he went for the avensis which is what he will be getting when he has to give the auris back.
    Personally I think its one boring car looks wise.

    We will be Px'ing her Yaris 3 door for it, not my Signum!
    Just need something a bit bigger for her.
    She doesnt like the new Corsa / Astra, but she seems to like the more expensive Auris!

    I test drove the 2.0 D4D yesterday, and the mrs and I have decided that we will part with some cash for one nearer to the end of the year. Baby isnt due until June, and she can manage with her 3 Door Yaris for a month or so.

    I have had a Focus TDCi before the Signum, and I have never been treated so badly by an aftersales dept than by that at M53 Ford (Named and Shamed)

    I used to have a 1985 Corolla, which I parted with back in 2000 with 128k on the clock, and its still going today. Service dept is great, sales arent too pushy and the cars are nicely specced and nice to drive. Its no ball of fire like the 150 CDTI, but its quiet and refined and cruises comfortably.

    Its not a bad motor & is a responsive car, but i would go for the manual gearbox tbh.
    Standard D4d 2.0L has iirc 115/120bhp so its a good output!!
    Safety wise for your family, deffo better than a Yaris!
