Trim level

Z-Sport
This is a limited edition based on Sport Nav trim. Pricey but distinctive.
Sport Nav
Top-spec trim throws in extras such as heated leather seats, rear parking sensors, automatic lights and wipers and an upgraded stereo. As with SE-L Nav trim, opt for the 2.0 engine and you get even more, including 17in alloy wheels, sports suspension and a limited-slip differential. While Sport Nav offers the most toys and more focused handling, we don’t think it’s worth the extra cost.
SE
Well priced, but doesn’t get the colour touchscreen of SE-L Nav and Sport Nav models, and the interior trim doesn’t look quite as classy. SE is also only available with the 1.5 engine. It does get USB inputs, a CD player, an AM/FM radio, four speakers, a leather multi-function steering wheel, air conditioning, 16in alloy wheels, two USB connections and bright LED headlights (rather than the halogen lights fitted to most cars at this price).
Our pick
SE-L Nav
Our pick of the range because not only does it add a smarter interior finish, but you get goodies such as climate and cruise control, LED daytime running lights and 16in alloy wheels. A comprehensive infotainment package includes a six-speaker stereo, sat-nav, Bluetooth and a DAB radio, all operated through a 7.0in colour screen. Go for the 2.0 engine and you also get bigger 17in wheels and a limited-slip differential.
