Trim: R Line
Adds larger 18in alloy wheels, ambient interior lighting, Nappa leather upholstery, three-zone climate control and keyless entry and start. It’s a pricey choice, though.

Noticeably faster than the lesser 1.5-litre petrol option, with more urgent acceleration. We think most buyers looking for a petrol offering will be better served by the 1.5-litre option, though.
