There is also a 1.5-litre three-cylinder diesel engine with 105 or 122PS. It is optionally available with a nine-speed automatic. 

The 105PS diesel is the most efficient, achieving 64.2mpg (WLTP). The 1.2 manages 54.3mpg and the 1.4 returns 48.7mpg.

Prices start at £20 less than the existing model at £18,885 on-the-road for the 1.2 in SE trim. The Sport Tourer costs £1,500 more.
