The manual gearbox has six speeds and the model, built in Britain, performs at 62.8mpg, the equivalent of having a fuel tank range of roughly 800 miles.

Its three trim levels are S, SE and SR with the entry level diesel S costing £22,800 and boasting features including DAB Radio, dual-zone climate control, USB connectivity, and steering wheel remote audio controls.
