Adds larger 19in alloy wheels and a more aggressive-looking bodykit. Sadly, you also get overly stiff sports suspension, although you can opt out of this for no extra charge. The cheaper trims make far more sense.
Provides good, usable performance that's helped by its slick, responsive eight-speed automatic gearbox. When we tested it, this engine managed 0-60mph in 8.1sec, just 0.2sec behind the rival Q5 2.0 TDI 190. However, it is a little grumblier than the Q5 when you rev it.
