While its low-end performance is lacklustre, the CX-30 appeals thanks to its high-end interior, generous equipment levels and economical engines. We’d stick to the entry-level 2.0-litre e-Skyactiv G petrol engine, and pair it with Centre-Line trim.

Despite being a sizeable 2.0-litres in capacity, this engine produces a meagre 120bhp – not much more than some 1.0-litre turbocharged rivals. Performance is alright if you’re prepared to work it hard (0-62mph takes 10.6sec) but lacklustre at low revs. It is economical, though, averaging officially almost 50mpg and it's the best option in the range when you balance performance with the purchase price.
