Styling changes with the facelift include a new look lower front bumper and revised alloy wheels.

Standard equipment with the former includes LED daytime running lights and headlights, 8in touchscreen sat-nav, Apple Carplay and Android Auto connectivity, an eight speaker Harman/Kardon sound system, front and rear parking sensors, a reversing camera, dual-zone automatic air conditioning, cruise control and a 4.3in TFT information display.

Stepping up to PHEV Plus spec adds equipment including park assist, a panoramic sunroof, a powered tailgate, high beam assist, wireless phone charging, a 360 degree around view monitor, blind spot detection and rear cross traffic alert. 

Prices are £34,995 for a PHEV model, and £38,995 for PHEV Plus.
