The XCeed tries to combine hatchback and SUV qualities, but doesn't quite pull it off, and the regular Ceed is a better buy. The Seat Leon is roomier and better to drive, while the Skoda Karoq and other SUVs are available for similar money while bringing real practical advantages. The PHEV brings low running costs, but company car drivers would be better off with a Skoda Octavia iV.

The 3 trim gets you 18in alloys, keyless entry and go, and additional luxuries such as power lumbar adjustment, dual-zone climate control, and heated front seats and steering wheel.

The plug-in hybrid is the company car choice, with brisk enough performance and an all-electric mode that has enough oomph to keep up with traffic. The electric range of 36.6 miles in the city is useful, but rivals can go further.
