Entry-level SE trim gets a decent amount of equipment, including 17in alloy wheels, dual-zone climate control, rear parking sensors, an electric tailgate, sat-nav and a DAB radio. Sport trim is worth considering if you’re likely to add bigger wheels; it gets 18in ones, along with contrast stitching on the dashboard, LED headlights, ambient LED lighting inside and body-coloured roof trims for not a lot of extra cash.
M Sport is expected to be the big seller, but the 19in wheels and stiffer suspension won’t do the ride any favours. Although the heated front seats appeal, you are mainly paying for a sporty bodykit and racier interior trim. M Sport X adds silver exterior trim to make the car look more like an off-roader and you also get leather seats.
All things considered, we’d stick to SE trim and then spend a bit of cash on some options. Metallic paint is always a nice thing to have and heated front seats are a worthwhile extra for cold winter mornings. We’d also pay for lumbar support, front parking sensors and Comfort Access (keyless entry).
Other kit available includes radar cruise control, a panoramic sunroof (but it’s likely to eat into head room), a rear-view camera, electric seat adjustment and a heated steering wheel.
