Competing with mid-level variants of the Hyundai Kona, Kia Seltos, and Toyota C-HR, the 2.0i-Premium offers a higher level of specification to go with its signature all-wheel-drive system. Interestingly, the 2.0i-Premium is not available as a hybrid.
The 2.0i-Premium adds to the equipment on the 2.0i-L with a sliding sunroof, satellite navigation, heated wing mirrors, and as of 2021 now has the full EyeSight active safety suite.
Included on the 2.0i-Premium is freeway-speed auto emergency braking with pedestrian detection, lane-keep assist with lane-departure warning, adaptive cruise control, and lead vehicle start alert, but also blind-spot monitoring, rear-cross traffic alert, and rear emergency braking.
Elsewhere, the 2.0i-Premium shares the 2.0i-L’s 8.0-inch multimedia touchscreen with wired Apple CarPlay and Android auto, 4.2-inch supervision screen, and 6.3-inch information screen. It also has a leather-appointed wheel and shift lever with premium cloth interior trim, halogen headlights, and 17-inch alloy wheels.
The 2.0i-Premium continues to be powered by a 2.0-litre four-cylinder non-turbo boxer engine producing 115kW/196Nm driving all four wheels via a continuously variable automatic transmission. It has an official/combined fuel consumption of 7.0L/100km.
The 2.0i-Premium has a small boot capacity of 310-litres VDA and has a space-saver spare wheel under the boot floor.
