Review

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.

Trim: Sport

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.

Engine: 40 TDI

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.
