Trim: Up Beats

The Up Beats is all about enjoying your music. It's based on Move Up trim but adds a 300W, seven-speaker sound system with a subwoofer for punchier bass. You also get the upgraded 5.0in colour infotainment system from High Up, along with 15in alloys and plenty of bespoke styling touches.

Engine: 1.0

The least powerful of the 1.0-litre petrol engines is officially slightly more economical than the 75 (74bhp) version, but acceleration is decidedly tardy. It’s available with a manual or automatic gearbox and, in economy-boosting stop-start (S/S) form, has sub-100g/km CO2 emissions.
