Trim: SE

This entry-level trim comes with all the essentials and quite a lot more on top. You get heated leather seats, a 10.2in sat-nav, dual-zone climate control, LED headlights, front and rear parking sensors, automatic lights and wipers, and 17in alloy wheels, so only really need to fork out for adjustable lumbar support and split-folding rear seats.,

Engine: 530i

Decently quick and nicely refined when mooching about town, but needs plenty of revs to get the best from it. We’d avoid this petrol engine and go for the 520d, instead.
