What Car? says

3 out of 5 stars

For Good looking, spacious and dependable

Against Expensive to buy, limited boot space

Verdict Well-equipped and stylish, but too small where it counts

Go for… 2.2 i-DTEC EX

Avoid… 2.4 i-VTEC EX

  • 1. The boot space isn’t great. There are 406 litres of space with seats in place and 1183 litres when folded –well behind the Ford Mondeo and Volkswagen Passat.
  • 2. The fabulously smooth and flexible 2.2 i-DTEC is the pick of the range. It comes in either 148bhp or 177bhp variants, with the first suitable for most
  • 3. It isn’t as efficient as the saloon. Diesel models average 47.9mpg or 47mpg, depending on power. The 2.0-litre petrol does around 38mpg and the 2.2-litre about 32mpg
  • 4. Servicing costs are generally slightly cheaper than those of rivals such as the Ford Mondeo and the Volkswagen Passat
  • 5. Stereo issues and temperamental Bluetooth phone systems have all been mentioned, but the biggest reported concern is cabin trim and build quality
