Peugeot Owner Car Reviews

2001 Peugeot 406 Coupe review

My sixth and final Peugeot came in the form of the Italian designed and assembled 406 Coupe. At the age of 25 and struggling to find the dollars to purchase one new (at the time costing around $76,000 plus options and on-roads in 2001), I settled for a 2-year-old Galileo Green metallic with an auto transmission...

2018 Peugeot 3008 Allure review

Having owned my Peugeot 3008 Allure for over six months and 12,000km, I can safely say that I’m still just as much in love with it as I was when I got it. After years of driving different models of Ford Focus, I thought it was time for a change...

2017 Peugeot 2008 Allure review

I should confess at the start of this report that I like Peugeots. At the time of the purchase of the 2008, my car selection was down to a stable of a Peugeot 504 that is on club plates, and a low-kilometre Peugeot 207 we purchased in 2003 after my request to buy a Subaru XV was rejected by SWMBO...

2016 Peugeot 308 Active review

So, a little while ago here I posted a very glowing review of my 2008 Ford Territory TX – my first car. In March this year, though, a family discussion of my needs and the car’s age and resale etc came up, and the decision was made to switch from the trusty but aging Tezza. Ideally, the next car would be a direct replacement – a dog-mobile/tow car with preferably a diesel engine and lower mileage...

2008 Peugeot 308 XSE HDi review

I bought my (what has proven to be) trustworthy 308 amidst all the usual small car options. I surveyed Mazda 3s, the Ford Focus, and the CarAdvice all-rounder Volkswagen Golf. Due to the kilometres I travel, a diesel seemed like the best option. One thing that PSA has always done very well is diesel! I took the ‘risk’ of buying my first car, an ‘unreliable’ French car...

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...
