At launch, there will be two petrol and two diesel engines, the least powerful being the 1.6-litre diesel making 118bhp and the most powerful being the range-topping 268bhp 2.0-litre petrol.

There will be six trim levels available in both hatchback and estate forms, with LED front and rear lights, a touchscreen infotainment system, DAB radio, voice control and smartphone integration included as standard.

The entry-level S trim starts at £24,655, while the SE starts at £26,165. This adds extras such as 17-inch alloy wheels, parking sensors and adaptive cruise control. SE Technology starts at £26,620 and gets leather upholstery, heated front seats and upgraded infotainment.

Upgrading to the £30,575 SE L model brings 18-inch alloy wheels, upgraded LED lights and an electronically controlled boot. For £34,295, Sportline Plus takes that up a level with 19-inch alloy wheels, gloss black exterior styling touches and Alcantara sports seats.

Meanwhile, the top-spec Laurin & Klement trim, which starts at £35,240, adds leather upholstery with ventilated seats, heated front and rear seats, tri-zone climate control, a digital instrument binnacle, and larger infotainment touchscreen.

Deliveries for the launch models will begin in September, with a 1.5-litre petrol and 2.0-litre diesel, both making 148bhp, joining the range later this year. A plug-in hybrid is also scheduled to be available early next year.
