Trim: Sport

Largely designed to enhance the exterior appearance, Sport models come with 17in alloy wheels, sports seats with a greater range of adjustment, changeable ambient lighting in the interior and a bespoke steering wheel and dials.

Engine: 118i [1.5] M Sport Shadow Ed

This turbocharged 1.5-litre petrol engine gives reasonable performance when revved hard and, driven carefully, it’s frugal. It sounds very hushed, but being a three-cylinder engine means you do get a fair amount of vibration through to the interior.
