Trim level

M Sport
Hugely popular thanks to its sportier looks – inside and out – and bigger alloy wheels. However, you also get stiffer suspension that does nothing for ride comfort. SE trim is better value, too – it&#39;s where our money would go.,
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.,
