One of the best driver’s cars in the class, with truly entertaining handling if you go for ST-Line trim. It has sharp dynamics, a good ride, quiet cruising manners and lots of passenger space. The iffy interior quality, reduced ease of use for the climate controls, and slightly lacklustre performance are the main areas that mark it down.

The Vignale version of the ST-Line trim adds 18in alloy wheels, the upgraded Bang & Olufsen premium stereo system, premium leather seat upholstery, an electronic four-way adjustable driver’s seat, heated front seats and steering wheel, a 12.3in fully digital driver display and wireless phone-charging. We don't think it's worth the extra cost unless you really want those features.

This is the engine to go for if you want more potent performance. It has 153bhp and sprints from 0-62mph in 9.0sec with the six-speed manual gearbox and 8.4sec with the optional seven-speed manual. Best of all, it’s still quite efficient compared to its rivals.
