Parkers overall rating: 4.1 out of 5 4.1

The Parkers Verdict

It handles almost as well as the saloon, is just comfortable, and has all the engine and trim options you can shake a stick at. There are some compromises in terms of refinement and dynamics compared with the saloon – but we're talking very small ones.

You'll get all the premium experience you'd expect from the saloon, too. Which is a good thing, because with all the thoughtful impovements to the load bay (the estate's USP, of course), a lot of small upgrades have resulted in a very competent car.

Is it the perfect large estate car? Pretty much.
