Trim: Elegance

This mid-level trim is incredibly well equipped: LED headlights, adaptive cruise control, 18in alloy wheels, four-way electric lumbar support, swish ambient interior lighting, nappa leather seat trim, front and rear climate control, heated front seats, a 12.3in digital instrument display, automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning and traffic sign recognition are all standard.

Engine: 2.0 TDI 190

With 187bhp, this engine is noticeable faster than the 148bhp diesel when you rev it, but it doesn't feel significantly stronger when you just rely on the engine's torque, as you might when overtaking on the motorway.
