Entry-level S models receive a 5.0in monochrome touchscreen system with an FM radio, USB port, SD card and Bluetooth connectivity. We’d advise going for SE trim at least, though, so you get a full colour 8.0in touchscreen.
SE trim also adds voice control and four extra speakers, but no sat-nav or DAB radio. Both of these are bundled together as a reasonably priced option or come as standard on top-of-the-range Xcellence, business-focused SE Technology and sporty FR trims, although the latter is only available on certain engines.
Although the menus aren’t quite as easy to navigate as those in a Kia Sportage, you get more functionality with clearer displays.
It is worth remembering that SE and above receive Seat’s Full Link system, complete with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Assuming you have a compatible smartphone, you can use your device’s navigation and music services without having to pay for the equivalent expensive factory-fitted upgrades.
