Even the seats fitted to the entry-level Design models are pretty comfortable, but we’d suggest moving up to Tech Line Nav trim for a greater range of adjustment that includes lumbar and seat-squab tilt for better thigh support. And, thanks to plenty of steering wheel height and reach adjustment on all models, you’ll be able to find a comfortable seating position.

When you operate the touchscreen, you’ll find the on-screen icons are mostly large and easy to hit, the menus responsive and simple enough to figure out. Admittedly, it’s not as slick as systems in premium-brand cars, but it’s not far off the usability of Volkswagen Group offerings, as fitted to rivals such as the Passat and Skoda Superb.
All versions get a USB port in the front and all bar the lowest trim have two outlets in the rear.
