This 1.8-litre four-cylinder turbocharged petrol comes with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox. With 249bhp at 6000rpm and 239Ib ft at a lowly 2000rpm, it’s enough to punch the featherweight A110 from 0-62mph in 4.5sec and on to a limited top speed of 155mph. It also sounds fantastic and is surprisingly economical – we managed 33.7mpg with a mix of driving.
