Worth considering if you need a muscular tow car that seats seven but too flawed to recommend otherwise

Trim: Ultimate

Top-spec Ultimate trim adds quilted leather seats with ventilation up front and a memory function for the driver, better headlights, LED ambient lighting inside, an electric tailgate, blindspot monitoring, lane change assist, rear cross-traffic alert and 20in wheels. Too pricey to recommend.

Engine: 2.2

The only engine, a 2.2-litre diesel unit, has 179bhp and 295lb ft of torque that are enough for adequate performance. It’s refined for the most part but does get shouty when you rev it hard. Four-wheel drive is standard and you can choose a six-speed manual or seven-speed automatic gearbox.
