Stylish alternative to the Golf, but it's nowhere near as roundedget the best price
The sportier version with larger 18in alloy wheels and a bodykit on the outside, plus part-Alcantara trim on the inside. Luxuries include a 6.5in infotainment system with sat-nav and DAB radio, height-adjustable front seats, power-fold door mirrors and auto lights and wipers.
Engine:1.4 TB MultiAir
This 1.4-litre engine punches well above its weight, with an impressive 168bhp and 184lb ft of torque. Performance is strong, refinement is good and there’s no penalty in fuel economy or CO2 emissions for choosing this engine over the Multiair 150. In fact, if you go for the optional TCT twin-clutch transmission instead of the standard six-speed manual, the official figures are significantly better. If you’re after a sporty petrol engine this is a fine option.
