R-Sport
Comes with all the comforts of Prestige trim, but adds 18in alloys, xenon headlights, a bodykit and sports seats. It also has lowered and stiffened suspension for even tighter body control, but this compromises ride comfort. We’d avoid this trim, because the standard cars are great to drive and are more comfortable.
Portfolio
Portfolio models come with lots of luxury equipment, including higher-quality leather upholstery than other XEs, full-electric seat adjustment and the superb Meridian sound system. They’re on the pricey side, though, so worth a look only if you like your toys.
SE
Entry-level SE trim gets more than just the essentials. It comes with 17in alloy wheels, dual-zone climate control, an 8.0in touchscreen sat-nav system, rear parking sensors, cruise control, automatic lights and wipers, part-electric seat adjustment, a DAB radio and online connectivity. Its cloth seats could be a turn-off for some buyers, though, so we’d step up to Prestige trim for its leather upholstery and a plusher-feeling interior.
Our pick
Prestige
This is our favourite trim, because it combines a luxurious-feeling interior with a reasonable price. It comes with all the kit that the generously equipped SE version gets and adds heated leather seats and chrome interior highlights. There’s no need to add any expensive options, although full-electric seat adjustment and adjustable lumbar support could be worth considering if you spend a lot of time driving your car.
