Engine: 1.0 EcoBoost
On paper, the entry-level 124bhp mHEV engine has an official 0-62mph time of 9.8sec, and promises better acceleration than rivals such as the Nissan Juke and VW T-Roc 1.0 TSI. That shows in the real world, too; there’s plenty of pep, and while you need to rev it towards 3000rpm to make the most of its power, you’ll have no problem joining motorway sliproads or overtaking a tractor on a meandering B-road.
