The interior layout, fit and finish

You won’t have much trouble getting comfortable behind the wheel of the 6 Tourer. There’s a height-adjustable driver’s seat with lumbar adjustment on all models, plus a generous range to the rake and reach-adjustable steering wheel. Visibility is fine, too, with relatively slim windscreen pillars and large door mirrors that let you spot what’s coming up alongside.

The 6 Tourer has one of the easiest infotainment systems to operate on the move among its immediate rivals. That’s because it’s controlled via a handy rotary controller and shortcut buttons down by the gearlever; using these while driving is less distracting than prodding away at a touchscreen – something you have to do in the 6 Tourer's mainstream rivals. That said, the 6 Tourer’s display is a touchscreen as well, should you prefer to use it as such.

The menus are easy to navigate with a little familiarisation, but the screen isn’t quite as sharp as the best out there. The 6 Tourer also misses out on some up-to-the-minute features, including Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone mirroring; these are available with the Ford Mondeo Estate, Skoda Superb Estate and Vauxhall Insignia Sports Tourer. All versions come with a DAB radio and Bluetooth, though, as well as built-in sat-nav.

If you’re after an interior that looks swanky, the 6 Tourer should meet your expectations. There’s a nice fusion of materials, including squidgy surfaces on the dashboard, gloss black trims around the centre console and a smattering of chrome-effect details to top it all off. But while it’s perhaps more visually appealing inside than a Superb Estate, the 6 Tourer doesn't feel quite as sturdily built.
