Based on S line trim, you get dark-coloured wheels and exterior trim, tinted rear windows and an upgraded stereo. It’s pricey, so we’d avoid it unless you’re sold on the looks.
If you are a private buyer after diesel, we think the 2.0-litre diesel engine (in this 148bhp tune) is worth the premium over the 1.6, because it’s a little smoother and offers punchier performance. It should still return more than 50mpg, too, keeping running costs down.
