Parkers overall rating: 3.5 out of 5 3.5

Limited engine choice

Only one engine’s available, the 2.0-litre e-XDi diesel, producing 153bhp and 360Nm from a low 1,500 rpm.

There’s a six-speed manual gearbox offered alongside Mercedes-Benz’s five-speed T-Tronic automatic, the latter of which is the only transmission choice with the four-wheel drive version.

Needless to say, with a large body weighing over two tonnes, fuel efficiency isn’t a strong point, with the best performer managing 37.2mpg with CO2 emissions of 199g/km.
