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: 1.4 MPi

Although we’ve yet to try the Stonic in entry-level 1.4-litre petrol form, experience of this engine in other models suggests it's probably best avoided. That's because there's no turbocharger, resulting in very little pull at low revs.
