It is: Mid-size, seven-seat MPV with a choice of three trim levels, two petrol engines and three diesel engines. Cost: £17,345 to £24,145. Gears: Most have a sixspeed manual shift.
Automatic: Two-pedal manual with the 1.6 diesel.
Kit: Air conditioning and stability control on all models.
Size: It is 178 inches long, 72 ins wide, plus mirrors, 64.5 inches high (4.53x1.83x1.64m).
On test: The 1.6 diesel sixspeed manual with 110bhp and 191lb-ft torque.
General economy: In the mid-40s in mixed motoring. Peugeot quotes a combined average of 53.2mpg with a tax-friendly 140g/km CO2.
Pace: 114mph and 0-62mph in 12.9 seconds.
For: New look on the block with the convenience of seven seats. Economy is good and you should expect more than 50mpg on open road driving. Competitively priced.
Against: Nothing I didn’t get used to. Pricier models run into competition from the roomier and sportier Ford S-Max (from £20,645).
Verdict: Very smart, handy MPV, neat enough for everyday motoring, large enough for five on holiday.
