In total, there is a choice of four petrol engines and a pair of diesels. At the bottom of the range is a 1.25-litre petrol with a meagre 83bhp, a unit we suspect will feel out of its depth out of town - we've yet to try it, though. Next up is a 1.4-litre lump with a more generous 98bhp – the only engine that is available with an automatic gearbox. This is an antiquated four-speeder, however.
We would be tempted to spend a little more on the 1.0-litre turbocharged three-cylinder motor with 99bhp. This engine is just as flexible as the small turbo engines in the Fiesta and Fabia, and delivers even more outright speed. A 118bhp version of this engine is also available, but you won’t notice the extra power unless you work it really hard. It isn’t worth the extra money to be honest.
Finally, there’s a pair of 1.4-litre diesel engines with either 76bhp or 89bhp. We’ve tried the higher-powered unit and, while it has plenty of poke, it’s rather unrefined and clattery. It’s also only available in high-spec ‘3’ trim that makes it a pricey buy. With either diesel, you’d have to do lots of miles every year to make it worth the initial premium.
