Diesel variants are powered by the updated 2.2-litre four-cylinder turbo unit that offers 148kW of power and 440Nm of torque.
Both engines are matched to the brand’s new in-house eight-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel drive.

With all the seats up luggage space is listed at 627L which increases to 2785L with the third row folded flat.
All models have a 2000kg braked towing capacity, or 750kg unbraked.
