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: 45 TFSI Quattro
Our favoured engine, because it strikes the best balance between costs and performance. The 242bhp 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol needs to be revved hard to get the best from it, in which case it'll officially hit 62mph in 6.2sec, but when you're not revving the bejesus out of it there's enough low- to mid-range oomph to deliver comparatively relaxed pace and around 30-35mpg in the real world.
