A well-equipped, reasonably comfortable and practical large SUV. Its pricing is a little too close to that of established rivals, though, and interior quality is questionable against the likes of our preferred choice in this class, the Audi Q5.

Our preferred Performance Line + trim adds front parking sensors and a reversing camera, electric seats in the front (which are also heated), plus a heated windscreen for the winter.

​​This plug-in hybrid combines a 1.6-litre petrol engine with two electric motors to give 297bhp and four-wheel drive. It’s certainly punchy, but it proves unrefined and is expensive.
