Three new turbodiesels that reduce both fuel consumption and emissions are welcome additions to the model. These include two frugal five-cylinder, 2. 4-litre turbodiesels - the 2. 4D (175PS) and D5 (205PS). The 2. 4D now provides 175PS, 420nm of torque from 1500-2750rpm and 0-60mph in 8. 4 seconds. The D5 has 205PS, 420nm of torque from 1500-3250rpm and 0-60mph is possible in 7. 5 seconds (8. 5 Geartronic).

Both engines deliver impressive fuel efficiency with up to 60. 1mpg and 47. 9mpg for the 2. 4D on the extra-urban and combined cycles, and 56. 5 mpg and 45. 6 mpg respectively for the D5.

Meanwhile, a new entry level 1. 6D Drive motor provides class-leading CO2 emissions of just 129g/km plus 57. 7 mpg on the combined cycle.
