Well equipped and distinctive but too flawed in key areas to recommend

read the full model review

Top-spec models come only with four-wheel drive and it’s the only trim that has the option of cut-glass and pleated interior trim. Over Luxury, you get a more advanced safety system with semi-autonomous driving, 22-way electrically adjustable rear seats with an ottoman and massage function, along with a rear-seat entertainment centre.


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.
