Parkers overall rating: 3.5 out of 5 3.5

Inside it’s far from utilitarian, offering a comfortable driving position and a high degree of adjustment for the driving position, which includes reach- and height-adjustable steering. Occupants have a very commanding view of the road, seeing over the tops of most normal cars. Top models have a touch sensitive colour screen, which replaces some button functions.

It may seem hi-tech, but it’s flawed in practice as it makes actions like changing radio station or fan speed more complicated and time consuming than it needs to be.

The five-door is a genuinely roomy way to carry five adults and the rear seat-backs recline to improve passenger comfort. Those who sit in the third row of seats, won’t have much leg room. There’s some wind noise at speed, but refinement is generally of a high standard as the diesel engine has active engine mounts to reduce vibrations. The three-door is not very generous in terms of rear accommodation and access is quite restricted.
