1.0T GDI [120]
The quickest in the line-up – and noticeably so. However, the power delivery still feels very flat and it’s not a patch on its rivals’ fastest engines, which are quicker and much more characterful. This engine is only available with a six-speed manual gearbox in range-topping Premium Nav SE.
Our pick
1.0T GDI
The best bet for most private or company users, provided you’re not planning on doing a lot of motorway or open-road driving, in which case the higher-powered version of this engine is likely to be worth the extra cost. This engine feels willing to rev, so is easy to use and makes financial sense for most people. A five-speed manual is standard, with an optional seven-speed automatic; we’d stick with the manual.
1.2
Refined and happy to rev, but slow even if you work it hard. The standard five-speed manual gearbox is a bit vague and makes it difficult to execute quick, slick shifts.
1.2
We have yet to try this engine, but expect it to have slow, uninspiring and frustrating progress. Worth looking elsewhere in the line-up, especially since it’s only available entry-level S trim, even if you are enticed by the low list price.
