A beautifully made, very comfortable high speed cruiser with a surprising amount of space inside. It’s competent rather than particularly involving to drive, though, and its infotainment system is way too complex.get the best price
Trim: S Line
Stepping up to S line brings upgraded adaptive LED lights, 20in wheels, sport suspension and more aggressive S line styling inside and out, although there’s no need to spend the extra cash when Sport trim is so generous. Add the optional adaptive suspension to get the best ride.
Engine: 40 TDI Quattro
The entry-level diesel is a 198bhp 2.0-litre four cylinder, badged 40 TDI. It’s the slowest of all the engines but will still have you cruising at – or beyond – motorway speeds with relative ease. It's the only engine available without quattro four-wheel drive fitted as standard, and the front-wheel drive version officially cracks 0-62mph in 8.3sec, but if you option the quattro system this drops to 7.0sec.
