Manufacturer price from:£81,930
What Car? Target Price:£69,474

A thoroughly modern engine that uses cutting-edge 48-volt electrics to power an electric compressor and an electric motor, both of which boost low-end power and response. It works, too, giving instant pace off the line while its turbocharger ensures it stays punchy in the mid-range. It’s also smooth to rev, works well with the standard nine-speed auto ‘box and is more economical than the competition. It’s only offered with the long wheelbase body, though.
