THROUGH THE RANGE

Our guide to which trim level might suit you

Auto Express - - Road Tests -

THE Rapid Space­back range starts with the sparsely equipped S model, but you’ll have to move up to SE Tech to get this 1.6-litre diesel.

Put down a £1,500 de­posit on a 36-month PCP deal, with 10,000-mile an­nual limit, and you’ll pay £271 a month. SE Tech spec brings cruise and climate con­trol, a mul­ti­func­tion steer­ing wheel and a 6.5inch touch­screen com­plete with sat-nav.

Move up to our SE Sport test car and 17-inch al­loys, a panoramic sun­roof and tinted win­dows are added. That will cost £293 a month on the same con­tract terms.

If you go for the more saloon-like Rapid in SE L trim, that rises to £323 a month. The high prices are partly down to the car’s poor resid­ual val­ues, which mean it’s not a great choice on PCP or as a pri­vate buy; if you do that, you’ll lose a lot when it’s time to sell.
