Trim: 2

While this is the entry-level model, it still comes with plenty of equipment. This includes 17in alloys, power-folding door mirrors, automatic lights and wipers, a leather-trimmed steering wheel and gearknob, air conditioning, front and rear electric windows, cruise control and rear parking sensors. It also includes a 7.0in infotainment screen with a DAB radio, Bluetooth and smartphone mirroring. You'll need to pay extra for automatic emergency braking and lane-keeping assistance, though.

Engine: 1.0T GDi

The 1.0-litre petrol is undoubtedly the pick of the range. How so, you might ask, seeing as it’s so small? Well, it has a turbocharger, boosting power to 118bhp – 20bhp more than the 1.4 – and there's almost as much low to mid-rev clout as in the diesel. All of which makes the 1.0 ideal for sauntering about town or getting up to speed on motorways.
