Had this car from new for two years now on a hire purchase agreement and will be buying it outright rather than handing back. My second faultless Peugeot now, but I'll probably buy something else next time just as a change.
It's a great drive, not the most comfortable as the suspension is hard (just what you want from a car like this) Whips around corners, and those seats hold you nicely in place. I deliberately took this car down snow covered country lanes and found the ESP very impressive, keeping the car under control.
Performance wise it's better in the corners than in a straight line, but easily keeps up with it's main rivals in the acceleration stakes, regardless of magazine reviews and pub talk. You just need to keep the revs up high in order to keep up, as most of the power is above 4k rpm.
I bought this car as the deal being offered at the time was too good to turn down. I wanted a Civic Type R and spent a year weighing up the pros and cons of both cars. Although I know the Honda has better performance stats, there were still a lot of negative factors which I wont list here.
Overall a very good car, although I think this has something to do with my better than average dealership. Peugeot are a bit of a lottery I guess.
