I think that driving should not only be practical and affordable but fun. I feel that the ZR encompasses all of these factors. Some say it has max power looks, well thats their opinion. It does have extended wheel arches and more aggressive bumpers than the Rover its based upon. The alloys suit the arches nicely without looking like an afterthought.
The interior of the car is basic but who needs a tv or a mini bar in a car. The front seats are snug and will hug you around corners, they are also padded enough to ensure that even with the stiffer sports suspension you arent shaken too roughly. The steering is direct and the grip is amazing, I think its the best i've felt in a car this size. The engine is pokey and fun, it has a pleasant burble at idle and opens to more of a roar after 3000 rpm. I dont ever feel that it is an unwelcome disturbance to the cabin. The speed and handling along with a practical large boot and comfy seats make this car great if you ask me. However the looks can put people off and so can the slightly plasticy interior.
