Trim level

vRS
Sporty vRS models have sports suspension, sports seats, LED headlights, 18in alloys, cruise control, lane assist and more aggressive-looking bodywork.\n\n\n,
Laurin + Klement
We are yet to try out this variant
SE Technology
The one to go for if you’re a company car user. It includes an upgraded infotainment system with online connectivity that puts a range of downloadable information at your disposal, plus an in-built sat-nav and wifi hotspot. Front and rear parking sensors, adaptive cruise control and automatic emergency city braking are also standard. However, it is offered only with the 1.6 TDI 115 or 2.0 TDI 150 diesel engine, and restricted finance options.
SE L
SE L trim brings Alcantara and leather seat trim, adaptive cruise control, LED headlights, privacy glass and a drive-mode selection switch. A nice added extra is the handy umbrella kept under the passenger’s seat.,
SE
This is our favourite for private buyers, because it adds rear parking sensors, manual driver and passenger lumbar adjustment, a front centre armrest, a multi-function steering wheel, cruise control, dual-zone climate control and rear electric windows, all for a reasonable uplift in cost.,
S
Even this entry-level trim comes with air-conditioning, alloy wheels, an 8.0in touchscreen, Smartlink featuring Apple CarPlay and MirrorLink, Bluetooth, a DAB radio and a USB socket. There are a few key options you can’t add to S, though, which is why it’s worth stepping up to SE grade.\n,
