2014 Peugeot 308 SW Review

It has the smaller steering wheel, so that the driver may look over, rather than through the wheel, for the instruments. Though the driver’s seat does not go too low, but it will compliment well, to most of the folks. Touch screen control panel is a good feature, but the screen lacks the quick respond on the move.
Seating arrangement is plausible, but its rivals offer more rear seat space than this. Though the boot space is a bit perfunctory, but it will hold more things, because of its low lip, which assists in easily putting in the objects, and the loading space can get expand more, with flat-folding rear seats.
Initial level Access variant comes with cruise control, digital radio, Bluetooth and AC. The Active variant is geared up with alloy wheels, real parking sensors, satellite navigation and dual zone climate control. In the Allure model you will get the reversing camera, and front parking sensor assist, LED headlamps etc. but you have to pay more for it. Feline variant is the top most variety and is enriched, with astonishing features, but it is extremely expensive.
You have choice to pick from the two i.e. 1.2 liter 3-cylinder petrol engine, and 1.6 liter and 2.0 liter 4-cylinder diesel engine. Petrol engines are good for sure, but diesel engines can be handier for you, if you load your car, with luggage quite regularly. 1.6 liter 118bhp Blue HDi engine can be highly utilitarian for you. Though the 2.0 liter engine is quicker, but it seems humdrum below 1900rpm.
Handling is swift, but there is grumble from the rear end around city, and the suspension suffers a bit over mid-corner potholes. Steering support is adequate enough, to perform miraculously on roads.
The 2.0 liter diesel engine is surly, gear box is cogged, and therefore it produces discomfort in submissive driving. Wind noise from mirrors on high way speeds, should get fixed.
This car can endow you supreme fuel efficiency, and lesser CO2 ejection. Good resale value of it also can attract you. Plastic used in designing the cabin, gives it a scintillating look. For top class security this car comes with automatic emergency braking system and cruise control. Deadlocks, engine immobilizer and locking the wheel nuts are some other highly utile features to grab with this mesmerizing sedan. Most of the versions are geared up with anti-theft alarm.
