Re: 1.5L 33 Sportwagon
I had a Black 33 1.7 Veloce Sportwagon. It was great, provided you had the right tyres on it - Yokohama A008s I worked out in the end, bridgestones gave lots of torque steer/understeer. The Yokos made it handle very nice just like a Sud. The 1.7 was a much more tractable and driveable engine than the 1.5, also the gearing (especially 1st) was better than the Sud 1.5Ti Cloverleaf which whilst great I found to be really peaky with a narrow high revs power band. The 1.7 with its wider and lower Torque band was was quick and easier to drive. As for looks I personally felt that the the Sportwagon was the only 33 to have as I felt it fixed the rather awkward rear styling of the 33 hatch. The Veloce pack also made it look quite agressive, especially in black.
