We have been running a Peugeot 208 as part of the What Car? fleet since last October, and the stylish supermini has now done more than 6000 miles.

Having driven the car in a variety of environments, content editor Tom Webster has taken to the local roads to talk through his likes and dislikes on the 208.

Our Peugeot has the 1.2-litre VTi petrol engine, which promises fuel economy of 62.9mpg, although it's falling some way short of this in reality.

We went for Allure trim, which brings a selection of equipment, such as sports seats, auto lights and wipers and cruise control. We also added a 400 sat-nav system, folding door mirrors at 100 and 340 parking sensors.

So far the conclusions are mixed, with the clutch and the sat-nav causing a few concerns, but the looks drawing praise.
