The 250d Progressive is available as either a manual ($53,950*) or auto ($56,850) in a cab-chassis body style, or a manual ($54,900) or auto ($57,800) pick-up. (*All prices do not include GST or on-road costs.) Our tester was the auto pick-up and had more than $14,000 worth of extras, taking its price-tag to $71,230.
As standard the Progressive has body-colour bumpers, leather-wrapped steering wheel, shifter and handbrake, black-grained instrument panel, silver air-vent trims, aluminium door sill panels, multi-media system with 7.0-inch media screen, Garmin sat nav, DAB digital radio and eight speakers, fabric upholstery, carpeted floors, auto-dimming rearview mirror and 17-inch alloy wheels.
Ours, as mentioned, has been substantially optioned up so it had 18-inch twin-spoke alloys (part of the $3750 'Style pack' option, which also includes LED headlights and tail-lights, power rear window, side steps and roof rails); power front seats, dual-zone climate control and microfibre upholstery (part of the $2490 'Comfort pack'); and 360-degree-view camera and park assist system (included in the $1750 'Parking pack', which is standard in the top-spec Pure variant).
Our Progressive also had the 'Comand Online' multimedia system with upgraded sat nav and wireless hotspot ($2990), black roof-liner ($400), sports bar ($1551), and a hard plastic weather-resistant bed-liner in the tray ($899).
