The best engine, in our view, is the BMW-sourced 2.0 CDT turbodiesel. It just suits the 75’s character so well – smooth, punchy, frugal and extremely quiet. In fact, you can barely hear it, unless you take it to maximum revs, which you won’t because there’s so much pull long before you get there. The rest of the line-up are all petrol engines: a reasonable non-turbo 1.8, a much keener 1.8 turbo, a 2.0 V6 that feels underpowered and a 2.5 V6 that seems to have sourced its 174 horses from poor stock. Of these, the 1.8 turbo gives the best all-round balance of performance, economy and refinement.

Classic trim goes without air-conditioning, so we’d upgrade to Club spec, which also adds electric rear windows. Connoisseur brings electrically adjustable leather seats and chrome door mirrors and any car badged SE should have cruise control and a CD multi-changer and so is the air conditioning of the car.
