Trim: M Sport

Range-topping M Sport models get different 18in wheels and a bodykit to differentiate them from xLine versions. They’re distinctive to look at, but also push up the price considerably. If you do go for this trim, be sure to deselect (at no extra cost) the unforgiving Sport suspension and go for the more comfortable standard set-up instead.

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.
