The ZS has its strengths, including its relatively classy interior, decent handling and roomy rear seats. Just bear in mind that the Dacia Duster is better still because it's cheaper to buy, more comfortable and has a bigger boot.

The top-tier trim won’t add too much to the list price but gets you some welcome luxuries, including built-in sat-nav, a 360-degree parking camera, heated front seats and blind-spot monitoring. You’ll struggle to find a rival for the same price that offers as much kit.

The 1.5 VTi’s lack of a turbocharger means that it feels quite sluggish from low revs, even when you pin the throttle. Once it does get going, it has just enough oomph to make merging on to the motorway easy.
