Entry-level trim offers dual-zone climate control, 16in alloy wheels, front and rear electric windows, automatic lights and wipers, height-adjustable front seats and electrically operated door mirrors. You also get an 8.0in touchscreen infotainment system with Bluetooth and a DAB radio, while active safety kit includes automatic emergency braking and lane keeping assistance.
The 113bhp three-cylinder 1.0-litre is expected to be the biggest seller and, thanks to a turbocharger, proves surprisingly punchy, with the ability to hold its own on motorways and A-roads. When you factor in its keen price, we reckon it's the pick of the line-up.
