The 1.2-litre petrol is available in three outputs, badged 82, 110 and 130.
We haven’t driven the lower powered version, but the 110 feels punchy and flexible, and willing to rev. However, if you do a lot of motorway miles it may be worth considering that the 110 gets a five-speed manual, where the 130 gets a six-speed manual that sees it hold lower revs at motorway speeds.
A 1.6 BlueHDi diesel is also available in three power outputs – 75, 100 and 120. We haven’t driven the lower powered version, but both higher powered diesels offer good flexibility.
The higher powered versions of the 1.6 diesel and 1.2 petrol, when bought in mid-spec Allure trim or up, get Peugeot’s Grip Control – effectively a more advanced traction control system.
