Review

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.

Aside from full leather trim on the massaging front seats, there’s not a lot of difference between this and the Performance Line + model.

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.
