Interior

What is it like on the inside?

Again, nothing offensive, everything fits, with nothing that will really offend or excite. There’s plenty of space up front – though the rear is a little dark – a marginally bigger boot than before, decent enough materials and the usual multimedia. The touchscreen and general operation is slow, though, and the graphics fairly generic. Saying that, it’s comfortable enough, and with the extra height, getting in and out is easy, and sight lines are acceptable. 

The UK gets a handy spec with the Eyesight system as standard, as well as the X-Mode off-road setting, keyless entry, an 8in touchscreen, steering-led LED headlights, 18in wheels on the 2.0 (17s on the 1.6). Though no standard-fit satellite navigation. If you plump for ‘SE Premium’ spec over straight ‘SE’, you get sat nav, leather and a sunroof. It feels robust rather than opulent, but there’s nothing wrong with that.
