Overall rating

4 out of 5 stars


  • Smart design means it's virtually as attractive as the hatchback
  • Classy cabin is spacious too
  • Excellent refinement regardless of engine choice
  • Comfortable ride matched by enjoyable handling


  • Some might think it too posh for real load hauling
  • More space on offer for similar or less money
  • Parking sensors only standard on top model
  • In-house rivals are its biggest problem
