I was one of a privileged few to drive this at a MyPeugeot event in Manchester in November last year. On the 1 February this year I took delivery of my one.

My first impressions are very good. The small steering wheel is very easy to get used to and the steering feels really responsive. Initially the instruments, particularly the speedo, seem a long way away and not the easiest to read, although this is negated by a digital speedo as well as the analogue one. The ride is much softer than in the outgoing car and consequently speeds are much more deceptive: it is very easy to find yourself doing 40 in 3rd gear without realising it. download 2017 Braun 250 Yamaha Owner Manual torrent. The aesthetics inside are really nice with a simplistic layout, which I like and almost everything is controlled by the touch screen. The CD player being an optional extra in all trim levels is a puzzling one though.
Externally the car is really good to look at with the 'Claw' LED rear lights and personally I prefer the design of the Access and Active from the front over the Allure and Feline. The engine in my car is the 5 speed 1.6hdi 92bhp. I prefer this over the 6 speed 1.6ehdi 115bhp. Both these engines are sub 100g/km in this car and both were available in the outgoing car so are tried and tested: my last 308 had the 115 engine which I found less fuel efficient despite the Start / Stop technology. When I ordered the car the 92 was the only diesel available with the Active while the 115 was the only engine available with the Allure.
Ultimately this tipped the balance in favour of the lower spec car as I prefer the 92 engine. One disappointment is that I am experiencing a high pitched wind whistle coming into the car on the drivers window. This happens even at low speeds and only happens on one window, suggesting a problem which I think may have something to do with the seals: it is going back to have this looked at and rectified. Hopefully this is specific to my car rather than across the range however. More disappointing however is that some safety features are only available on the 2 higher spec cars: The collision avoidance system, which is now a requirement to hit 5 stars on the Euro NCAP ratings is only available as an option on the Allure and Standard on the Feline, while blind spot monitors are an option on both those models. Neither are available either as standard or as optional extras on the Access and Active, which is a shame given that they are safety features as opposed to gimmicks.
