Trim: SE

This entry-level trim brings 17in alloy wheels, dual-zone climate control, rear parking sensors, a Bluetooth infotainment system with sat-nav, a USB socket, a DAB radio and black cloth upholstery. It’s the best-value trim, but you’ll want to add a few key options, including automatic emergency braking.

Engine: xDrive 18d

The 148bhp 18d diesel is fairly responsive from low revs, and there’s no sudden surge when the turbocharger kicks in. This engine is available with a manual or automatic gearbox, and a choice of front-wheel drive (sDrive) or four-wheel drive (xDrive). Stick with cheaper sDrive unless you really need the extra traction.
