There’s only one engine: a 1.8-litre turbo petrol that pumps out 276bhp. The 0-60mph sprint is achieved in a very respectable 5.9sec, although the Honda Civic Type R and VW Golf R are even quicker. Comes with a six-speed manual gearbox as standard, but there’s an optional auto (EDC) 'box if you prefer.
