No, you don’t sit in a Mercedes, Audi or BMW. But that’s how you feel. Because the compact Peugeot 308 CC offers the space and comfort of a luxury sled. Convertible cruising is so much fun that you don’t even want to stop. Especially since parking can be difficult.
L.the seat purrs back slowly. One more piece. And another piece. And one more thing. The soles of the medium-sized passenger are now about two hands wide from the shallows under the glove compartment. The elbows on the left and right are also not constricted by an overloaded central tunnel or inflated door profiles. Instead, a grin spreads across the pillion’s face. “More space than in the 7 Series BMW” is the name of the brief analysis. "This is a real comfort car."
This is not a Mercedes or Audi or any other limousine of lush proportions. Instead, it’s about a retractable roof, a Peugeot 308 CC, to be precise. The four-seater is only 4.40 meters long, but with the sports seats fully retracted, it shows off a seat that is more likely to be found in the front rows expected from luxury sleds.
Although there is only theoretical space for two child seats in the ruthlessly recirculated case, this should by no means be a point of criticism. After all, we are talking about a convertible and not a French family carriage – even if it is an excellent French carriage. The chassis is set up to be gentle and comfortable, without rocking unpredictably through the area. Although there are no adjustment options, the Peugeot leaves nothing to be desired in this regard.
The tire size suggests something completely different. 225/40 on 18-inch wheels means nothing more than: a touch of rubber on light alloy rims. These belong to the standard equipment of the most expensive line "Platinum" and should normally lead to wild curses in average people. After all, such tires feel every sensitive intervertebral disc. And the Peugeot? The stomach growls in front of the intervertebral discs because it is so wonderful to cruise with.
And long. At a typical convertible speed on this side of 150 (maximum speed 209 km / h according to the manufacturer) with country roads and urban areas, the 140 hp diesel can move 5.5 to 6 liters without any problems. The theoretical range thanks to a 60-liter tank would therefore be around 1000 kilometers.
But the sun seldom shines at full power for that long. It’s better to park a little earlier and let the two-part folding roof snap back into place over you at the push of a button. However, if the art of folding the roof top is learned quickly (in the trunk, only the luggage blind has to be closed by hand), parking, on the other hand, proves to be an act for advanced users.
Since the extremely inclined windshield hits the front of the car at almost the same angle and the high and somewhat thick rear of the 308 CC does not allow any conclusions to be drawn about the length of the car, the optional equipment with parking beeper is recommended to everyone.
In the premium package (30,150 euros) you have to shell out 310 euros for the rear, which can be saved in the Platinum version (32,900 euros), but even here you have to pay 200 euros for the front parking aid.
But there is nothing more to complain about. Except maybe that the sun really shines too seldom in this country for such a car. But we already had that.
