The £23,495 1.9 TTiD version – described as the "most powerful sub 120g/km saloon and estate on sale in the UK" - produces 180bhp with 119g/km emissions.

Opt for the £27,245 2.0-litre petrol version and you get a car with a similar claim - the "most powerful sub 160g/km petrol Saloon and Estate on sale in the UK" – which produces 220bhp and 155g/km.
