Luxury trim also gets 17in alloy wheels, but it has a different set of visual upgrades inside and out to Sport models, as well as leather seats. Again, we’d save the cash and stick to entry-level SE trim.
Entry-level petrol is smooth and quiet while providing all the power you’ll need. It has to be worked reasonably hard to access its power, though, and because this is an MPV, we’d choose diesel.
