Why does it look like this?
It’s meant to be a posh SUV that can do the rough stu – think cheaper Land Rover Discovery. GTLine S spec is ‘sporty’, so there are ‘ice cube’ DRLs, red calipers and an aggressive grille, to help pushy parents dominate after-school pick-ups.

A sturdy 2.2-litre diesel with big torque – engine is the biggest and most powerful here, hence the gru din. Post-facelift eight-speed auto is smooth and responsive regardless of drive mode. Has electronic di lock.

More rolls than Greggs on a tricky road but ride is better than the crashy Peugeot. Big, and doesn’t get any smaller on the move – tight rural roads can be nervy. Sharp steering a welcome surprise and adds at least a veneer of enthusiasm to the dynamics.
In a word, big; big car, big engine, big on bodyroll
