Engines

2.0 TDI DSG 4Drive
The most powerful engine but also the most expensive. This is due in part to standard four-wheel drive and an automatic gearbox, so think carefully if you’ll actually use the added performance and traction enough to justify the extra outlay.
2.0 TDI 4Drive
With 148bhp, this offers the best blend of power with good fuel economy and low CO2 emissions, so shouldn’t cost a lot more to run than the 1.6 TDI while being much stronger. It is a lot more expensive, mind, but comes with four-wheel drive as standard.
1.6 TDI Ecomotive
More flexible than the entry-level 1.0 petrol, but struggles when loaded up – especially on faster roads. It has the best fuel economy and emissions – but only just. Comes with a six-speed manual gearbox only.
1.4 EcoTSI
The most powerful petrol engine, although it shouldn’t cost too much more to run than the 1.0 TSI. In fact, unless you’re doing lots of miles it makes a good alternative to the diesels, being quick, smooth, relatively frugal and cheaper on company car tax than even the 1.6 TDI.
1.0 TI Ecomotive S
This little three-cylinder petrol engine has more than enough power for the urban cut and thrust, so it’s fine for anyone simply pottering around town. It struggles more on the open road when fully loaded, though. Comes with a six-speed manual gearbox only.
