Engines

Our pick
D4
This 187bhp 2.0-litre diesel sounds a bit grumbly at idle, but quietens down on the move and transmits little vibration into the car. And it’ll whisk you up to motorway speeds easily enough and comes with an automatic gearbox and four-wheel drive. It averaged a so-so 35.4mpg combined in our real-world True MPG tests, but relatively low CO2 emissions make it a good company car choice.
D3
We have yet to try this 148bhp diesel. It comes with a choice of manual or automatic gearbox and front or four-wheel drive. Oddly, the CO2 emissions for a D3, equipped with the auto &#39;box and four-wheel drive, are worse than in the more powerful D4, which comes with those features as standard.
T5
Despite having just four cylinders and two litres, this 244bhp T5 petrol engine will be quite expensive to run – expect MPG in the low 30s at best on a motorway run. That said, it is a refined and lively performer that delivers a smooth flow of power.
T4
We have yet to drive this 187bhp petrol engine, which comes as standard with an automatic gearbox and four-wheel drive.
T3
The cheapest engine is a 154bhp 1.5-litre petrol and it&#39;s available exclusively with a manual gearbox and front-wheel drive. It&#39;s aimed at those doing relatively low miles who drive mostly around town – and that&#39;s a good thing because it&#39;s certainly no ball of fire.
