Engines

2.0i [300] Auto AWD
We haven&#39;t tried this engine yet, but if you want a really fast petrol the V6 is faster and likely to sound sweeter. It isn&#39;t that much more expensive, either.
2.0d [240] Auto
This twin-turbo diesel comes with a rear-wheel drive layout as standard, although four-wheel drive is available as an option. It’s a largely smooth and punchy engine, made even better by the slick eight-speed automatic gearbox. More expensive to run than the other diesels, but still delivers respectable running costs.
2.0i [250] Auto
The higher-powered of the two 2.0-litre petrol engines is a punchy performer. It’s a smooth and quiet engine, too. There’s no major fuel economy or CO2 emissions penalty for choosing it over the lower-powered unit, so it’s worth a look if you find that version a little slow. An eight-speed automatic is the only gearbox this engine is available with.
3.0d V6 Auto
The most powerful diesel engine in the range. It’s certainly no slouch, capable of dispatching the 0-60mph sprint in less than six seconds. Thanks to lots of power low down in the rev range, it feels as quick – if not quicker – than the V6 petrol in the real world. It&#39;s reasonably smooth, too.
Our pick
2.0d [180]
A very credible company car choice, although it emits slightly more CO2 than the entry-level 2.0d 163. Performance is strong enough for town and motorway work. However, it isn’t as punchy or refined as the equivalent engines in rival luxury saloons.
2.0d
The entry-level diesel is rather weak. Company car drivers will be attracted by its low CO2 emissions and the promise of good fuel economy. However, we reckon it&#39;s worth upgrading to the 2.0d 180, which offers more pace for not a lot more money.
