Cabin oddities

Peugeots clearly taking this modern technology theme seriously, because this is the first car weve tested without a CD player. Instead you get two USB ports. They connected phones and devices up fine, but wouldnt play from Spotify. Handily, the system will stream music from apps like this over Bluetooth, but you lose the gracenote album art doing it this way.

Because its obviously spent the money on the touchscreen and high-quality wheel, plastics elsewhere in the cabin are a little cheap and scratchy. We particularly werent fans of the blanking panel in the window quarterlight that tries (and fails) to manage the step in height between the side window and windscreen. Look past some of the materials though, and this is a spare, elegant cabin.
