103hp/170nm?Ford Ecoboost is 125hp/170hp from its 1.0 turbo

Mind-bendingly dull. The front end is weak, fussy and boring. Technically competent but what isn’t in this sector? The interior is dark and the skimpy chrome details look cheap and do nothing to lift the sea of black and grey. If only the car had any stand-out visual appeal – it would be able to distinguish itself – as is, it’s oppressively mediocre.

John McNeely says:

Thanks for the informative review. I would consider this three cylinder petrol as a replacement for my i30 diesel.

Staticwave says:

I’ve got the 1.0 Elite on order. should be getting it 2nd week in April. Starting to wonder if i should’ve gone for parking sensors however we’ll see once it arrives.

Meni Fo says:

Looks more like a facelift version of the previous model. Still dull and uninspiring. Nice rear end. That’s the only good thing you can say about this car.

Shanjan Usman says:
