4 out of 5 4.0

Only two trim levels, Connoisseur SE and Contemporary SE, both are generously equipped with pretty much all you could want. The difference is mainly in the detailing, with Connoisseur offering more of a classic style and Contemporary being more modern in looks.

3 out of 5 3.0

A reasonable level of safety and security equipment is fitted and it scores a respectable four stars in the Euro NCAP crash tests. It also benefits from a traction control system. Decent security means you're unlikely to have it nicked.

Interior & boot space

3.5 out of 5 3.5

A decent sized boot will cope with the needs of holidaying family or travelling salesman. Rear seat folds to increase space but doesn't split. Alternatively specify the Touring body for increased load carrying capability.
