Exotics in check: how good are these shopkeepers?

As a new car flops, as a used top?

These cars were hardly ever bought. But are Audi A2, Suzuki Splash & Co. now worthwhile as used cars? Eight exotic birds in check!

Audi A2, Fiat Bravo & Co .: With the new registrations, these vehicles could only be found in the last places. At that time, only a few chose a new Chevrolet Spark or a Seat Exeo. That is why these vehicles are only available in clear numbers on the used car market. But are automotive exotic cars that only very few wanted to be worth as used cars?

No applause for the Bravo

The 1.4 liter 90 HP engine is overwhelmed with the Bravo, at least 120 HP should be.

In 2010, a Fiat Bravo 1.9 MJT Emotion received praise in AUTO BILD’s 100,000-kilometer endurance test. Because there were no technical problems and the 150 hp compact was always reliable, it was given a grade 1. Whether this was due to good maintenance or simply an exception? Because in the TÜV report, where all main inspections from Germany are evaluated, the little Italian does not get away very well. If you look at the results, the Bravo is actually not really good in any category. But he has many problem areas. This includes the chassis, the brakes, the lighting system and oil loss. Long-term durability is definitely not one of the qualities of the compact Fiat Bravo.

Audi A2: It slows down

As a new car flops, but top used?

Despite an external length of only 3.80 meters, four adults have enough space in the Audi A2.

The Audi A2, which was built until 2005, offered optimal use of space, a comparatively large amount of space, a large interior variability and a low-consumption engine range. Perhaps the small van was optically and technically ahead of its time, because it was a niche market and only had sluggish sales during its production period. However, after its production ceased, the prices of used models rose. Interested parties should have a budget of at least 3000 euros for a well-preserved Audi A2 and, in particular, have their weak points, the brakes, inspected. AUTO BILD reveals in the picture gallery what weaknesses the Audi A2 also has and how the other exotic vehicles perform technically.
