Parkers overall rating: 4 out of 5 4.0

Commanding driving position with good all-round visibility – even when it’s fully loaded. Driving position is natural with a clear view of the instruments and easy access to all of the controls. Steering wheel adjusts for reach and rake.

All engines are refined, although the TDIs need 10 or 15 minutes to warm up. Wind noise on the motorway is minimal and road noise is not a problem.
