Driving it

5 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
My four month old Peugeot 308 SW 1.6 Turbo Diesel SE spec estate is a far better car than expected having never owned a French built car previously! The handling and precise accuracy of the very light steering is excellent and compares well to my old VW Golf Hatchback. The ride comfort on motorways and on country lanes alike is relatively soft whilst the cabin noise levels are low but for the expected Michelin eco tyre noise. The turbo diesel engine and six speed gearbox combination provides ample acceleration, especially at the lower end of the rev range. The vehicle is comfortable in 4th whilst driving in built-up areas and pulls well in 5th gear on rural roads. 6th gear keeps the car moving well at 60 mph plus and provides sufficient power to change lanes / overtake etc

What's it like to park?
OK given it's an estate.
