Our 1.2 petrol PureTech 110 EAT6 auto has done 650 miles. From inside the car, it's hard to hear if the engine has started or not. And no, there's nothing wrong with our hearing!

I would hope so too a new engine should be quiet.And regarding the noisy engine get it looked at shouldn't be rattling more a ticking sound in my opinion.

I have the 110bhp Puretech in a C3, and it is almost silent. If it is under warranty, you should get the dealers to look.
