Much to like, but the crashy ride stops it being the best

This is our favourite trim because it keeps the price down but gives you access to better engines in the range. Standard equipment is good, adding to the Chic trim 17in alloys, climate control, rear parking sensors, a two-tone colour option and, as the name suggests, better connectivity including smartphone mirroring (Apple CarPlay and Android Auto) and sat-nav.

The three-cylinder petrol engine is eager and impressively efficient, and its characteristic thrum settles into the background at speed. You need to work it hard to extract decent performance from it, though – the extra punch of the more powerful version is worth paying more for. A five-speed manual gearbox is standard.
