Design

Entry-level Design models receive hill start assist, cruise control, a touchscreen infotainment system with Bluetooth connectivity, air conditioning and auto lights. For not much more, however, you can get Tech Line that adds even more kit.

With 134bhp, this engine is capable of 0-60mph in 9.0sec with the six-speed manual gearbox. It may be nippy, but CO2 emissions are only 103g/km, with claimed economy of 72.4mpg. If you need a bit more performance from your diesel, it’s a good option. This is the only diesel available with an automatic gearbox, but the figures change to 62.8mpg and 119g/km.
