Aimed mainly at company car drivers, Business Edition Nav gives you a 7.0in touchscreen infotainment system with built-in sat-nav, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto smartphone mirroring, DAB radio and Bluetooth. You also get 16in alloy wheels, air conditioning, cruise control with a limiter, a front armrest and a leather steering wheel. Disappointingly, you don’t get automatic emergency braking or an alarm.
