Standard in the S and Rocks S variants, this 148bhp engine has nippy performance but is expensive to buy and run.
Our pick
Our favourite engine. Genuinely nippy turn of pace, albeit not desperately quick off the lin. Good in-gear pace, and the power is delivered smoothly. It’s pretty quiet, too. CO2 emissions of 119g/km and a combined economy figure of 55.4mpg aren’t world-beating though.
1.4i 100
The most powerful non-turbo 1.4 is barely any stronger than its baby brother. Not worth the added expense.
1.4i 87
You have to work the 1.4 very hard, making it quite a noisy companion for long motorway journeys. Even so, the extra punch over the 1.2 makes it worth considering for the little extra it costs.
This engine is happy to rev, easier to drive smoothly and doesn’t feel much slower than the 1.4 in practice, so you don’t miss out on much in return for saving the cash. Don’t go for Ecoflex optional stop-start unless you’re sure you’ll do enough stop-start miles (for example, in town) to justify the extra outlay.
