Engine options

There are two engine options available with Visia models, the DIG-T 140 petrol or the dCi 115 diesel, there’s no automatic transmission, both come with manual gearbox, so if automatic transmission is a deal breaker then you’ll have to skip this model.

Bothe engines are good runners, feel quick enough and offer attractive running costs, the DIG-T 140 petrol is capable of 0-62mph in little over 10 seconds, combined fuel economy is up to 41mpg while CO2 emission are around 122g/km.

The dCi 115 diesel is not as nippy as the petrol engine around town (0-62mph is just over 12 seconds) but it does offer more torque and can feel better on motorways or when travelling with a full load of passengers and/or a full boot. Running costs are very good, CO2 emissions are as low as 102g/km and combine fuel economy is as high as 53mpg. If you clock up a lot of miles each year then the diesel could be the better choice, fo low mileage/around town driving the cheaper petrol models are a no brainer and they feel pretty smooth.
