Verdict

This is a world away from the bloated, bland 207 that went before. Peugeot deserves praise for making a car thats smaller and lighter but with more space inside than before. Were quite big fans of the innovative interior architecture, but try before you buy - it wont be for everyone. That, together with the tech set up, mean this is a car with a good deal of appeal for people like us.

Its not perfect its on the pricey side in this trim level and still doesnt drive with the panache of Peugeots of old, but that clever interior, smart tech set-up, good looks and a brilliant diesel engine mean it ought at least to be on your shortlist.
