Review

The E-Tech plug-in hybrid makes some sense to company car users or those private buyers who can make full use of its all-electric potential, and is reasonably priced for a PHEV. The load bay of the E-Tech is slightly bigger than the Ceed Sportswagon’s, while rear seat space is unimpressive. It’s disappointing, too, that automatic emergency braking comes as standard only on the top trim level.

get the best price

This sporty trim adds to Iconic with standard 17in alloy wheels, more aggressive front and rear bumpers, automatic emergency braking, a rear parking camera, RS line specific trimming inside including a sports steering wheel, a 10.0in driver’s display and a larger 9.3in touchscreen infotainment system.

The 1.3 TCe delivers less power than rivals such as the Ford Focus Estate and Skoda Octavia Estate but has enough to get the job done. Uninspiring CO2 emission figures mixed with average MPG and the lower power make it hard to recommend over the hybrid offering, though.
