Introduction

It may not look like it from outside, but it's got more sparkle than a Dolly Parton dress.

Everything is right: grip, steering feel, engine power, and what doesn't usually correspond with these, ride quality.

Peugeot must have taken the handcuffs off its chassis engineers and told them to make it handle better than any other medium hatchback. Then nicked the great little engine out of the 207 THP 150 (and MINI Cooper S), gave it longer gearing, and shoved it under the bonnet.

The result is a car with the body of Jo Brand, the sharpness of Jo Brand and the energy of Russell.
