Trim: SRi

SRi comes with 17in wheels, front foglights, a leather steering wheel, sports seats, a front armrest, auto wipers, a six-speaker stereo with OnStar, auto-dimming rear mirror and auto braking. If you want sat-nav, go for the SRi Nav version.

Engine: 1.6 CDTi 16V

This is the entry-level diesel engine and, in Ecoflex guise, also the most efficient. Available with a six-speed manual only, it offers CO2 emissions of 91g/km and claimed fuel consumption of 83.1mpg. Even the standatd version manages 97g/km and 76.3mpg. A 0-60mph time of just over 10 seconds means it’s fairly brisk as well as refined. The best choice for business users.
