This range-topping trim is based on the regular Xcellence but adds microfibre suede seats, 18in alloy wheels and Seat's self-parking system. However, you’ll be spending the sort of cash that would get you a bigger or possibly premium brand SUV.

The more powerful 114bhp 1.0 engine (badged 1.0 TSI 115) pulls more eagerly from low revs and feels suitably more energetic in every situation. It’s just a pity that this engine is available only in SE Technology and above, unless you go for an automatic (DSG) gearbox – something the majority of buyers in this class won’t want.
