Long verdict – Stylish, practical and good value – a fine estate. Go for the 1.5 TSI 130 in SE Technology trim for the best value, or the 1.5 TSI 150 in FR trim for a load-lugger with fun driving manners.

Over FR trim you get 18in wheels, heated front seats and steering wheel, suede-effect seats, an electric driver’s seat with memory and adjustable lumbar support for the front passenger. We’d stick to plain FR.

The acceleration this offers won’t exactly take your breath away, but it’s a really flexible engine, meaning there’s plenty of pull at low engine revs all the way up to 6000rpm and beyond. It’s much cheaper than the TSI 150 engine, too.
