Luxury cars add plusher trim pieces, 17in wheels, a sliding rear bench and electric folding rear seats over SE. You also get leather seats, which are nice but do push the price up over similarly specced Sport models.
While this 2.0-litre diesel isn’t much more expensive than the 216d, it’s far gutsier and barely any less efficient. Refinement isn't quite on the same level as a Volkswagen Golf SV 2.0 TDI, but it’s still good, making this model our pick.
