There are three engines to choose from, starting with the 1.6 i-DTEC diesel with 118bhp. Performance is flat below 1500rpm and a bit of effort is required to get the best out of it at speed. There’s also a twin-turbo version of the 1.6 with 158bhp, which is much more lively, pulling well from 2000rpm There's also a 2.0-litre petrol, which is willing, but not as gutsy as the diesels.
All engines come with a six-speed manual gearbox as standard, while a nine-speed automatic is available on the more powerful diesel and a five-speed auto can be added to the 2.0-litre petrol. The petrol’s auto 'box feels slow and dated compared with the latest offerings from rival manufacturers, but the nine-speeder is impressive.
The more powerful diesel and petrol can be specced with two- or four-wheel drive, but the base diesel comes with just two-wheel drive.
