Engines

1.4T GDI
This turbocharged 1.4 is officially quicker than the 1.0 but often doesn’t feel that way, and it uses more fuel in the process. We’d go for the 1.0 and save money buying and running that instead.
1.0T GDI
Our favourite engine in the range is Hyundai’s turbocharged 1.0-litre petrol. It’s a decently flexible engine and feels at home in town and on the motorway. It’s so good, in fact, that the more expensive turbocharged 1.4 petrol feels a little redundant.
2.0T GDI

1.6 CRDi
The single diesel option pulls well at low revs and doesn’t get too breathless at higher speeds. It’s also very well insulated, because it transmits next to no noise or vibration inside the car.
