Peugeot 308 SW Access 1.6 HDI 92 FAP Just Add Fuel
Peugeot's Just Add Fuel offer makes paying for cars easier than getting sunburn on a tropical island. The 308 SW Access 1.6 HDI 92 FAP, for example, is available via a three-year personal lease for thirty-five monthly instalments of £299. This complements the £2,494 initial rental. These figures include the vehicle, plus its: insurance, warranty, servicing, breakdown cover and tax – hence “just add fuel”. As such the car is supplied with a tax disc and the customer receives a cheque to cover the next two years (based on current rates). It is then his/her responsibility to ensure it remains legal. At the end of the term the vehicle can be returned with nothing else to pay (subject to mileage limit). So, best not drive around to many islands. The motorist could, however, pay the £6,412 final rental fee to own the car rather than return it which brings the total to £19,371. To qualify for the Just Add Fuel offer, the motorist must have had a full licence for two years or more. He/she must also have a two-year no-claims discount (or better) and be no older than seventy-five. The driver must also have a fairly clean licence but a small indiscretion will not necessarily be an issue. Well, not compared to avoiding sunburn on our tropical island.
Peugeot 308 SW Access 1.6 HDI 92FAP Review
The Peugeot 308 SW Access 1.6 HDI is monstrously spacious. As such, it comfortably seats four people and has a 573-litre boot. But that is only the beginning. Why? Because the rear seats can be removed to increase cargo capacity to 2,149-litres. That eclipses virtually every other estate on the market including the Mercedes-Benz E-Class and BMW 5 Series Touring. This strength complements the class-competitive handling and respectable ride that makes motoring – both to and from tropical islands - pleasant. Furthermore, once the motorist “just adds fuel” this load-lugger averages 62.8mpg, manages 70.6mpg on the extra-urban cycle, and returns 53.3 in town. Pleasing figures considering the car's price. The downside is that its 92bhp diesel engine takes 13.2 seconds to propel sunburnt motorists to 62mph. That is far from fast - and a little more power might be handy when fully laden. Standard equipment includes: front fog lights, power steering, four electric windows, Bluetooth, air-con and daytime running lights so it has the basics most people consider essential. So, who wants to explore a tropical island?
