Interior

The interior layout, fit and finish

There’s a wide range of seat and steering wheel adjustment to help you find a good driving position, and the Cross Country has the most comfortable seats in its class. There’s full electric adjustment for the driver plus lumbar support for both the driver and front passenger, and leather upholstery throughout.

The centre console feels very outdated and cluttered, though, with a selection of small and fiddly buttons that are hard to tell apart at a glance. There’s DAB radio, Bluetooth connectivity and a USB input that will allow full control of Android and Apple phones through the standard 7.0in colour display. However, combined with the messy dash, it all feels a long way behind the large, clear touchscreens of the Volkswagen Golf, or the Audi Q2’s class-leading MMI infotainment system.
