There’s also a 158bhp version of essentially the same 1.3-litre petrol. It’s not overtly stronger for day-to-day use to be honest, so given how strong the lower-power motor is and the not-insignificant price premium, it hardly seems worth it. That is unless you tow a caravan, where the extra oomph could prove useful, or you want the option of an automatic gearbox, which the 138bhp engine doesn’t have. It's a dual-clutch auto 'box that's impressively responsive, if a little jerky in stop-start traffic.
