Our guide to which trim level might suit you

Auto Express - - Road Tests -

FOR a 1.6-litre diesel Tipo hatch, your choice is be­tween Easy Plus and Lounge trims. There’s also an Elite model aimed at busi­ness users, which has smaller wheels to re­duce its CO2 emis­sions, but that’s only avail­able through con­tract hire rather than PCP.

The range starts with Easy Plus, which comes with a five-inch touch­screen fea­tur­ing Blue­tooth, DAB and USB, 16-inch al­loys and air-con­di­tion­ing. It’ll cost £315 a month on a three-year, 10,000-mile PCP deal with a £1,500 de­posit, or £339 for an auto box.

Move up to Lounge trim as tested here and you’ll pay £331 per month, but add sat-nav, 17-inch wheels, cruise con­trol, a mul­ti­func­tion steer­ing wheel and a park­ing cam­era. The auto model costs £357 a month.

All ver­sions are very ex­pen­sive for what you get, de­spite the rel­a­tively low list price.
