Our Peugeot 308SW...
We collected our Peugeot 308SW manual diesel from Paris CDG Airport.
It proved a wonderful way to travel for the months of April, May and June principally in Spain but also through Portugal, France, Holland and England.
This was our first experience with a GPS and although it was a new model, and the handover could have been better, we learnt by trial and error over the first week or so.
A GPS does not replace a map book, nor can you rely on it absolutely (the software was unaware of relatively new roundabouts and roads), but we would never again travel without one. Its value far exceeded the small extra cost.
It was a pleasure to go exploring each day in otherwise inaccessible places and we particularly enjoyed being able to open the back hatch and use the back floor as our coffee table no matter what the weather.
We averaged 5.5 litres of diesel per 100 km's over 10,500kms ... hence we were very impressed with both the economy and performance of the 308SW.
We would certainly use Peugeot EuroLease again and recommend it wholeheartedly as a great way to travel.
