Trim: 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.

Engine: 1.4T 16V 125

This engine may have an extra 25bhp over the non-turbocharged 1.4, but it manages to be just as efficient and clean. It’s also the cheapest engine in the range to get Vauxhall’s six-speed manual gearbox instead of the older five-speed 'box. It feels more muscular, but we’d be tempted by the more powerful version of this engine.
