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.

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.

Offering around 30 miles of electric-only range, the PHEV version delivers low emission figures that mean it sits in the same cheap BIK tax band as most of rivals, making it a good option for company car owners. Around town, the electric motor is responsive and transitions smoothly to combined power, but once the battery is drained, MPG figures are nothing special.
