2015 Peugeot 308 Touring Allure review

I have had my 2015 Peugeot 308 Touring wagon for a year-and-a-half now, and really enjoy the car. Originally I was tossing up between a Holden Calais, Subaru Liberty and the 308. I ended up going with the Peugeot because of the nimble handling and supremely light steering. The Calais by comparison was boat like, although I can see the benefit of the larger vehicle on the open Australian country roads...

2014 Peugeot 208 GTi Review

Coming to the end of a three year stint with my 2014 Peugeot 208GTi now, so a good excuse for a self-indulgent review. For context, this was my 34th car and I like to think I'm pretty honest about the relative merits of the cars I've owned. So hopefully this helps anyone considering one for themselves...

2012 Peugeot 508 GT Luxury HDi Review

In June 2014 I bought my first 508 2.0L HDi Allure Auto with 164hp. It was just 2 years old. I didn't know at that time but it was an ex-rental car. I enjoyed everything about that car although the extras were limited. Ex-rental was no detriment  It was quiet, gear changes went un-noticed, comfortable, easy to drive, quick , economical and above all for me, a superbly good looking car...

2007 Peugeot 407 ST Touring Comfort Review

The 2.2L Peugeot 497 SW Comfort Touring is smooth to drive, with an emphasis on luxury over sportiness. It is extremely quiet inside. The interior design style, attention to detail and standard of finish are superb. The leather, for instance, is of the highest quality, so has not deteriorated at all. The exterior style is dramatic and pleasing to the eye from every angle...

2014 Peugeot 508 Allure HDi Touring Review

I moved from the 3008 to the 508 HDi touring just over 2 years ago. I have not had one problem since purchase and really enjoy the long distances that I drive and the economy. I drove from Healesville to Cairns last year via Lightning ridge and managed to use only 2.5 tanks of fuel (72lt tank) for the trip up for 3,100 approx. km's and the car was loaded...

2012 Peugeot 508 GT HDi Review

Just picked up a 2012 508 GT Wagon and thought I would share my first impressions of the car. I'm coming from a 2010 Nissan X-trail ST-L and a 2005 HSV R8 before that, so my impressions will be based on those benchmarks. Outside: It's an interesting looking car. Nice sophisticated lines to it and in black it really looks very sleek in the wagon body...

2007 Peugeot 307 XS HDi 1.6 Review

The Peugeot 307 1.6 HDI (110 hp) is not a performance car, a good handling car or a tech car. So, what is it then? Well, it's one of the most brilliant cars for people who just want a car...

2013 Peugeot 308 Sportium Touring HDi Review

When I bought the 2013 Peugeot 308 Sportium Touring wagon, space enough to fit two bikes standing in the rear instead of plonking them on the roof or rear mounted rack was the main requirement as was the ability to load large Ikea flat-packs. This car is versatile enough for all this as all rear seats( 5 of them) can be removed...

1992 Peugeot 205 Review

The Peugeot 205 was launched in Europe in 1983, and quickly became Europe's best selling car – However it wasn't until 1988 that the model reached Australian shores. Sales of French cars in Australia had been strong throughout the 70's – much of it a response to the fuel crisis, however by the late 80's, public perception of French built items were waning, numbers showing they were at an all time low...

2012 Peugeot 3008 Allure 2.0 HDi Review

We got our ex-dealer 3008 with about 25,000 kms on it. I've added 20,000 kms on it so far. The 3008 shines in its frugal and torquey diesel engine and great ergonomics, especially in terms of the front seats with their excellent side bolstering and under-knee support and the perfectly sized steering wheel with built-in 'blisters' for resting your palms on...

2012 Peugeot 308 C Allure HDi Review

After owning a 307 1600 HDi hatchback for eight and a half years from nearly new, I decided to replace it with a 308 and was tempted by a 2yo CC 2.0litre Allure model. Apart from the lack of coffee cup holder and not a lot of space for the occasional trip with two passengers 6'3 high in it, this is a dream stylish car to own and drive...
