AT A GLANCE

Herald Sun - Motoring - - Road Test -

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.

OWN­ER­SHIP

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).

PICK OF THE RANGE

Trend hatch petrol au­to­matic $40,490
