Avoid entry-level Access A/C trim as it’s the only model in the range to not get an alarm, DAB radio, alloy wheels or a leather-trimmed steering wheel, although it does get air-con, USB input and cruise control. We favour Active trim, since it comes with 16in alloy wheels, a colour touchscreen, USB socket, Bluetooth and a DAB radio. It’s the one to buy whether you’re buying privately or through work, because it has everything you realistically need but keeps the price sensible. However, you can only get this trim with the lowest powered versions of the petrol and diesel engines, neither of which we’ve tried.
Allure trim is well worth looking at if you want something with more features. It includes rear parking sensors, 17in alloys, LED interior lighting, dual-zone climate control, fog lights and (if you go for the higher powered engines) Grip Control. Top spec GT Line gets some stand-out styling features and is the only trim to get sat-nav as standard, but it’s too expensive to be recommendable.
