In their own words

Bought the car for going to beach with lots of paddle boards etc, for light roading, for going skiing, and long distance journeys (1000 miles+) with 2 kids. Car totally met expectations and grip control seems to work. I also switch tires for summer months to SUV tires and semi-winter tires in winter which helps. Loads of space, kids are comfy. Driving long distances and up and down high mountains the car has enough power and is actually a surprisingly good cruiser - I cruise around 80 mph. Seats are comfy and wipe clean easily when dirty. But we have had issues. The car was a few months old when it just totally wouldn’t start. Once the car wouldn’t lock. And currently the front sensors don’t work (Peugeot garage blamed hot weather). They haven’t been able to fix it yet either after trying twice. So it’s a versatile vehicle and excellent value for money. But dodgy Peugeot electronics is an issue. The garage had a line up of all types of Peugeot SUVs all with same sensor problems. Also it’s very high so if you are planning to put kayaks on the roof check it first.
