Running costs and reliability
UK prices are impressively competitive, particularly the lower-power front-wheel drive petrol versions (we’d probably still insist on diesel, though – the non-turbo 1.6 petrol cheapie may tempt you into showrooms, but it’ll tempt you straight back out if you don’t drive something else too). Meanwhile, a top spec Trailhawk model with the hardiest transmission costs £29,000. Ok, its economy and CO2figures aren’t extraordinary, but they are good enough to keep it on pace with most cars in the class – few of which can match its ability.
