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.

On top of Performance Line, ‘+’ models have front parking sensors and a reversing camera, active LED headlights, keyless entry and start, wireless phone charging, electric seats in the front and an electric tailgate. Oh, and you get a ‘fancy’ BRM clock for the dashboard.

The 222bhp version of the 1.6 petrol engine is quiet at idle and low revs, but doesn’t have the low-end grunt of the diesel, and can feel laboured. You’ll also need to rev it hard to get the best from it.
