For anyone looking for an all-wheel-drive hybrid with a high degree of practicality – able to compete with vehicles like the BMW X5, Mercedes GLE 500e and others - this is a great option. Being a top-of-the-range model means there’s a well-appointed interior packed with features. Over 400bhp is available from the combined 2.0-litre petrol engine and electric motor combo, and although it’s the fastest car in the range we wouldn’t describe it as sporty - just fast and extremely comfortable. 0-62 mph in 5.6 seconds and a top speed of 143 mph mean it’s no slouch, and high-speed cruising is steady and relaxed. Electric-only range is 25 miles and CO2 emissions (59g/km) are good and low for those working out their company car tax!
