AT A GLANCE
WHAT IT’S GOT
Lots of gadgets, leather trim, heated seats front and rear, panoramic sunroof, adaptive suspension, automatic power tailgate, adaptive cruise, blind-spot warning.
WHAT IT HASN’T
Stop-start technology, standard metallic paint.
Seven years’ capped-price servicing. First three years or 45,000km cost $1065 plus $135 for fluids, which is pretty good. The warranty is average at three years/100,000km and Ford throws in a year of roadside assistance with services (up to seven years).
WHAT WE LIKED
High level of standard features, luxurious interior, strong engine, dials 000 in an emergency, modern styling.
WHAT WE DIDN’T
Suspension is not quite right, steering tune needs work, metallic paint adds $450 (white is only non-metallic colour).
