A triumph of touchscreens

Given that we arent always impressed by in-car touchscreens, this system is one of the best weve used. Its big for a start. Having projected it into the cabin, off the dash, its easier to reach, just a short sweep of your left hand as it rests on the wheel. However, the three physical buttons (for volume, home menu and shuttle through the nav-media-radio menus) are set up for left-hand-drive markets. Its a real shame for us that Peugeot didnt flip them over.

The touchscreen reacts quickly and because its big, youre not trying to hit a pin-prick of a tiny button to change stuff, so we made fewer input errors than on other systems weve used. And the shortcuts for the phone and the radio presets on the wheel are logical too.

Its only graphics that things fall down on. A blue and grey colour theme (were not sure why they didnt key each menu to a different tone) and the depth of quality things like the richness of the blacks - isnt really up to snuff. All in all, its a shame because it doesnt match the simple, clear quality of the analogue dials and slightly spoils the experience of a really good system
