I was first drawn to this car by its good looks. I was won over by the impressive levels of performance, comfort, space and equipment.
The 3.0V6 is very responsive to the throttle. You can cruise along in 5th gear at nearly any speed and the car pulls away easily when prompted. Gear-changes are smooth and the brakes are responsive.
There is a lot of space in this car. 4 fully grown adults can fit in easily and access to the rear is good via the electrically operated memory seats and wide opening doors. The boot would put many saloon rivals to shame and the rear seat back folds down too for even more space if required.
Once inside the car the seats are comfortable, mine has heated leather seats. There is a hint of wind noise and the occasional burble from the V6 when pushed above 3000rpm other than that, silence...
Electric pillar-less windows, electrically folding mirrors and a 6 speaker JBL 6xCD/Cassette/Radio are standard fit.
Prices are falling for these in the UK.
I get 25-30 mpg from mine so a 3 litre isn't too expensive to run and I think the whole package is excellent value for money.
Peugeot did an excellent job on this flagship model, I hope the reliability stays good...
