Review

So far we've only tried one engine and trim – the 2.5 Duratec PHEV ST Line – and it's one of the best plug-in-hybrid large SUVs there is. Interior quality could be better and the battery reduces boot space, but it's well priced, good to drive and has an impressive electric only range.

Trim: ST-Line

ST-Line is the sportier-themed addition to the range, with styling upgrades including a rear spoiler, red brake calipers and red interior stitching. There’s also a chrome gear knob and ST-Line branded floor mats plus sports suspension, 18in alloy wheels and a 12.3in digital instrument screen. It's quite a bit pricier than Titanium trim with not a lot of added substance.
