A brilliant and underated car. Comfortable, veratile, and very economical. Forget the Peugeot predjudice the motoring press seem to have about this marque and get yourself one. Far more reliable than any VW I have owned.

I have owned my car since January, I have overall been very pleased with my car and very pleased with the good MPG for a car that mainly does short trips. one issue that I did have at the start of owning my car was with the double clutch gearbox, the first one I have owned. I found a big delay in acceleration and gear changed when nipping out onto Roundabouts. To anyone who has found the same issue with there Pug please do not let it put you off Owning one as it can be easily overcome. The problem starts if you do not come to a standstill when coming onto an Island. If you do not stop the Gearbox will not change down from second gear to 1st, creating a Lag under Hard Acceleration. This can be overcome by using the Sport button On busy Islands, this raises the revs, Changing down the gearbox, making quick acceleration easy with your double clutch gearbox, Use Sport on busy roundabouts and you will have no more problems with lag when accelerating hard whilst still moving. Happy motoring Fellow Pug Owners

Very good and reliable car. Never had problem with starting, even during winters in Scandinavia. Both comfortable and sporty. Compared to equal cars, it is very cheap both in buying and running. You should begin with low gear to reach high speed otherwise it will be feeled underpowered, but beyond that it is an remarkable family car.

It's not the best car in the world because it is very annoying. I can barely see the instruments and the touch screen is a bit complex for my taste. Also the seats at the back are cramped, and that's a shame because the seats in this car is excellent. I only use it for rare camping holidays and find it tough to live with.
