    I've been in a 1L Corsa with 5 doors (it's not mine btw).
    There weren't any issues really. It's not gonna be quick, but there's 5 seats for a reason!
    Unless those 5 people are just extraordinarily large... :rofl:

    Depends on whether the engine is interference or non-interference.
    True that high revs will ruin a cam belt faster though.

    Luckily my Ford KA 1.2 (new model not the old rust bucket) is non-interference so I happily rev it around the A roads and motorways not too worried if the cam belt does snap.
    Interference/Non Interference only matters if the belt does snap, but if you replace it at the correct time/mileage intervals then that shouldn't happen. Unless the came belt is past its interval then neither high revs nor high loads will increase your chance of snapping it. High revs only wear it marginally faster than normal driving.

    You're going to need to rev the nuts off that little 1.2 anyway! A mighty 70bhp to play with

    Yup completely correct! Thanks for adding that on, I kinda skipped the basis and went to what effects the engine. I assumed high revs made it worse a lot but good to know it doesn't

    Haha I rev it a lot, give a mighty little roar but it does its job well in fairness
