While the automotive world has put an emphasis on downsizing engines in recent years, and now is slowly moving towards electric, there’s plenty of life left in the 2.0-litre engine.

The 2.0-litre engine always struck a balance between power, performance and efficiency that you would traditionally have to sacrifice by opting for a different capacity.

Here’s some of the best on the leasing market for around £200a month.

Seat Leon

2.0 TDI 150 FR

Leon blue

With a new model due to be revealed imminently, now is the time to bag yourself a great deal on the outgoing Seat Leon.

The 2.0 TDI option might not quite have the response of the TSI but is equally solid with superior mpg. The figures speak for themselves, hitting 0-62mph in 8.4 seconds with a fantastic 64.2mpg and emitting only 112g/km of CO2

Volkswagen Arteon

2.0 TSI Elegance

With deals in stock and available now, the tech-laden Volkswagen Arteon is the undercover legend of the manufacturer's range.

The 2.0 TDI engine make up more than 60% of Arteon sales for a very good reason: it offers a hushed refinement when cruising which can be offset by sporty aggression at the push of the pedal. With 61mpg on offer and 0-62 in 8.3 secs you can do no wrong.

Mazda CX-30

2.0 Skyactiv-G MHEV SE-L

MazdaCX5Chapman-49

The Mazda CX-30 is the newest model on the list and as a result fits in with the current trend for combining coupe styling and the bold practicality of an SUV.

On top of being on-trend stylistically, the Mazda CX-30 can also boost your green credentials with the 2.0 Skyactiv-G engine featuring a mild-hybrid system which is one of the cleanest and most efficient available. It offers 40.4mpg and 126g/km CO2, with a 0-62 of 11.2 seconds.

Skoda Octavia Estate

2.0 TDI CR SE L

Another VW Group model due to be updated in 2020 is the ultra-reliable Skoda Octavia.

Having recently celebrated its 60th anniversary, Skoda describe the Octavia as the ‘heart and engine’ of the brand. In estate form the 2.0 TDI engine comes highly recommended due to its strength and flexibility, offering 148hp and 67mpg. With the increased practicality, this is as good as an estate gets.

Jeep Compass

2.0 Multijet 140 Longitude

When you want a Jeep, no other car can quite scratch that itch. And if you don’t need the capability of the Wrangler, and need something a bit roomier than the Renegade, the Compass is your best option.

While it may lack some refinement at low revs, the 2.0 Multijet engine comes into its own when cruising and settles into a hushed rhythm on long motorway trips. With 138hp and a 0-62 of just over 10 seconds, the Compass returns 46.3mpg. It’s a tough looking crossover with the heritage to back it up.
