This engine is smooth and promises good economy, but it does have to be revved quite hard if you want decent pace. The optional seven-speed automatic gearbox goes some way to concealing the relative shortage of shove (a six-speed manual ’box is standard) and reduces CO2 emissions, so is worth considering.
