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.get the best price
In addition to Zetec trim this well-equipped version gives you 18in alloy wheels, dual-zone climate control, keyless entry, an auto-dimming rear-view mirror, part-leather seats, ambient interior lighting, a 10-speaker B&O stereo, LED headlights and automatic wipers. It's the entry-level trim if you want the PHEV plug-in hybrid engine. We'd suggest going for this trim over pricier ST-Line trim.
Engine: 2.5 EcoBoost PHEV
The plug-in hybrid model pairs a 2.5-litre four-cylinder petrol engine with an electric motor. You can drive in full-electric mode, full petrol mode, or a mix between the two as the car sees fit. Electric mode gives instant punch, while in the hybrid setting, the change between petrol and electric is almost seamless, and you’ll only really notice the engine has kicked in when you hear it start to murmur away, which it will do up inclines and when overtaking because of the CVT gearbox. A good official electric-only range of 35 miles help keep company car tax low.
