It may be the smallest and cheapest of Lunar’s impressive budget range, but does it still cut it as a year-round tourer? We take a look at the Venus 460/2 to find out.

Lunar’s recent makeover of its Venus budget brand has given it a lift, with a duotone exterior, stylish graphics and – on this ‘Plus Pack’-equipped example – smart alloy wheels.

It’s a similar story inside. The single front window (new for 2015) floods the interior with light, classy wood effect is offset by new ‘Randazzo’ upholstery and cream locker doors, and the soft furnishings marry modernity with 1970s retro chic.

You can tow a 460/2 as a fully-laden 85% match with a towcar weighing as little as 1359kg – depending on year and spec, that’s Ford Focus TDCi territory.
