A beautifully made and comfortable cruiser with a surprising amount of space inside. It’s competent rather than particularly fun to drive, though, and its infotainment system is too complex.
The trimSee full equipment
There’s no need to go beyond entry-level Sport trim. Full LED headlights, 19in alloy wheels, front and rear parking sensors with a reversing camera, automatic emergency braking, lane departure assist, cruise control, electric leather seats, sat-nav, a DAB radio, Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone mirroring and a powered tailgate are all included. It's worth adding the optional adaptive suspension to get the best ride.
The engineSee full engine specs
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.
