THE FACTS AND FIGURES
IT IS: What the marketing teams call a Crossover. Think of it as a roomier 208 with estate car styling.
CLEVER: Some models have Peugeot’s advanced traction system called Grip Control.
STYLE: At 164 inches long and 61 inches high, it has some presence and the snub face inherited from the 208 looks tough and purposeful if not sweet.
VERDICT: The revelation was the grip of Goodyear’s “all year” tyres on snow without Grip Control. It could be all the car you need next winter.
ECONOMY: Best from petrol is nudging 58mpg.
