What should I be paying?

Prices start at £68,955 for the S line, £72,950 for the Black Edition and £89,750 for the Vorsprung, with the plug-in hybrid an additional £7-8k on top. Monthly payments start at around £1,040, £1,100 and £1,390 respectively, on a four-year agreement and with a six-month initial payment.

Rivals? The BMW X6 starts a little cheaper at £65,740, with the Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe starting at a pricier £87,080.

What are the kit choices?

There’s a raft of kit as standard even on the S line: 21-inch alloys, air suspension, eight-speed automatic ‘box, quattro, Matrix LED lights, leather seats, climate, MMI-Plus, parking plus, active safety tech, and the rest.

Black Edition adds, er, a black styling pack, 22-inch alloy wheels, flat-bottom steering wheel, four-zone climate control, and polished oak interior trim, while Vorsprung models get all-wheel steering, a panoramic roof, head-up display, Bang & Olufsen sound system, heated sports seats with ventilation and massage function, and more.

The Comfort and Sound pack – the only optional pack available – is a £2,295 optional extra on S line and Black Edition trim, standard on Vorsprung.

What's the best spec?

We’d be tempted by the entry-level 50 TDI – do you need any more than 286bhp and 0-62mph in 6.3 seconds in your posh family runaround? Not really. It’ll cruise around happily, provide 550 miles-ish to a tank of diesel, and soothe away boring commutes with a duvet of technology.

If you’re on a budget (unlikely) then S line trim is already impressively equipped, but top-spec Vorsprung looks pretty much spot on when it comes to option box ticking, so it works out at decent value if you want all the toys in one go.
