Trim:

LS

This entry-level trim only comes with rear-wheel drive and on standard suspension (air suspension is not even an option). However, you still get plenty of kit for your money, including dual-zone climate control, 20in wheels, leather seats that are electrically adjustable up front, an around-view monitor, automatic emergency braking and a big 12.3in infotainment system with sat-nav.

Engine:

500h 3.5

No, this isn’t a 5.0-litre engine; the clue is in the ‘h’. Up front is a 3.5-litre V6 that’s supported by two electric motors and a battery pack. It’s quick when you put your foot down but is also coarse. Drive slowly and it’s pleasingly smooth and has reasonable CO2 emissions. Available in rear or four-wheel drive.
