Trim: Griffin

Engine: 1.6 CDTi 16V 136

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.
