Overall rating

4 out of 5 stars


  • Cleaner, greener engine range
  • Refinement levels have been stepped up
  • Greater focus on entertainment and safety equipment
  • Improvements made in build quality


  • Unusual manual override for Powershift auto gearbox - buttons on gearlever
  • Diesel variants feel less agile than petrol models when driven briskly
  • Comfort bias means keen drivers will have to dig deep to discover car's talents
  • No three-door option
