Momentum trim is the pick of the bunch. Just look at what you get for what’s a relatively inexpensive price in this class: adaptive cruise control, automatic (LED) headlights and wipers, leather seats, front and rear parking sensors, a powered tailgate with ‘gesture’ opening and closing, sat-nav, Bluetooth, 19in alloy wheels, dual-zone climate control, an electrically adjustable driver’s seat, heated front seats, a DAB radio and automatic emergency city braking. That’s quite a list.
It is worth considering the Momentum Pro upgrade, which adds to those niceties above a heated steering wheel, adaptive headlights with headlight washers, Nappa-leather seat trim, an electrically adjustable passenger seat, heated steering wheel and a 12.3in digital screen in place of analogue dials.
Only go for the R-Design trim if you really love its sporty looks. It adds sports seats with electric adjustment for the passenger, privacy glass, a 12.3in digital instrument cluster, 20in alloy wheels and a host of sporty design touches, but it doesn’t really make much financial sense.
As with the Momentum trim you can upgrade to R-Design Pro. This includes the same additional luxuries as the Momentum Pro, along with 22in wheels (that hurt the ride comfort) and adaptive air suspension.
Inscription trim gets the R-Design’s 12.3in digital instrument display and electrically adjustable passenger seat, along with softer Nappa leather, 20in alloy wheels, swanky ambient illumination throughout the interior and handsome walnut trim. It’s certainly plush, but we still rate the Momentum model as offering the best value for money.
Again, there’s an Inscription Pro that follows the theme of adding extra luxuries that on this version include cooling and massaging front seats, adaptive air suspension and 21in alloy wheels.
It’s not strictly a trim - you can order the T8 hybrid in any of the regular trims - but whichever one you choose with the T8 powertrain installed your car will feature a 12.3in digital instrument display, four-zone climate control and individual air-con for the third-row seats, as well as panoramic glass sunroof and the unique addition of a crystal glass gear knob.
