Entry-level S trim isn't worth considering because you don't even get a radio or air conditioning. Besides, the price premium to upgrade to SE trim is tiny.
It’s not the most efficient engine in its class, according to official figures, but it’s not too far off and came out top in the family car sector in our True MPG real-world fuel economy tests. Refinement isn’t great, with a bit too much din when you put your foot down, and the power band is rather narrow.
