    Looks fantastic, ours is the standard metallic orange with a black roof. It really stands out and the 'free' colour scheme is far, far better than the usual flat white paint. Fuel economy is good, it's averaged 45.5mpg over the last few thousand miles and gets 50-odd mpg on the motorway. Feels punchy in Sport mode. The interior is high-tech and really well equipped, and it's pretty practical seeing as it's classed as a 'small' SUV. A few niggly things. The clutch seems difficult to operate smoothly, resulting in jerky gearchanges, and the pedals are too close to each other and the footrest. Like most Peugeots I'd guess. The range figure is very annoying, dropping by 6 or 7 miles whenever I drive out of my street. It can sometimes drop 25 miles on a 3-mile trip across town, so seems very inaccurate. What's more irritating is that you can't hide it - it shows on every display on the digital dials, and feels like you're always counting down to the next fill-up. Strangely, pressing the air con icons on the screen bring up a different menu than clicking the air con button beneath. A piece of gearlever trim has fallen off and is rattling, while the seat bolster is already showing signs of wear because you slide over it every time you get in and out.
    What's the one thing you like most about your car?
    Great looks, good to drive, practical
    If you could improve one thing, what would it be?
    Clutch feel
