Entry-level GX2 models lack Bluetooth and have only five seats, so we’d opt for GX3 or hybrid GX3h, which brings dual-zone climate control, reversing sensors, Bluetooth and alloy wheels. GX3 has seven seats, too. GX3/h versions also feature neat touches such as heated electric folding door mirrors and automatic wipers, making them feel more upmarket.
On the hybrid version there’s an additional GX3h+ trim that adds heated front seats, and an app-based remote charging and cabin heating system controlled by your smartphone.
GX4/h trim also comes with heated seats as well as sat-nav, a DAB radio, leather trim, a reversing camera, a sunroof and a powered tailgate, but it’s pretty expensive, so hard to make a case for. In a similar vein, the flagship GX4hs – there isn’t a GX4 equivalent – adds some neat safety kit and adaptive cruise control, but it costs a lot so is difficult to recommend.
