Few estate cars have the visual appeal of the Genesis G70 Shooting Brake, plus it drives well and comes with a lot of equipment for the money. Those good looks have compromised it as an estate car, though, so if you want something practical that’s also good-looking, go for the Volvo V60 or Audi A4 Avant.

Even the entry-level G70 SB comes with lots of standard equipment, including LED headlights, 17in alloy wheels, electric lumbar support, auto high beam, front and rear parking sensors and rear-view camera, dual zone air conditioning and a 10.25in touchscreen infotainment system with DAB radio, built-in sat nav, Bluetooth and Apple CarPlay/Android Auto smartphone mirroring.

The extra torque of this diesel engine means it has a respectable 0-62mph sprint time of 7.7 seconds, which should mean it’s handy enough for most manoeuvres you can throw at it. We suspect the boosted economy figures will make this engine the pick for company car drivers.
