My Peugeot 308 Weekend Drive!

Peugeot 308 Allure version.
Got this from a Nuffnang blogging contest. 

The interior is pretty classy. I like black and chrome interior. And this pretty suits my style!
Back leg rooms aren't as big.. but acceptable I would say. :)

The 'S' is the Sports mode of the car.. with a press of it.. the car will ROAR!!
If ya notice.. the front glove compartment is pretty arch in.
Hence the front passenger's leg room is really big!
Navigation system.
In Peugeot's technology, this is called the i-Cockpit.
It was awarded the Most Beautiful Interior Design of the Year 2013 at the 29th International Automobile Festival, this gem meets a demanding set of specifications, including a smaller, sportier steering wheel, a head-up display with a crisp, clean design, and an eye-level instrument panel.
Large touchscreen is 9.7" and angled towards the driver's sight.
Volume control, mute and radio station can be selected on the steering wheel.

 There's a USB port for you to charge your phone. I Like This! :)
There are lights shone in both the driver's and front passenger's leg space when you enter the car.
Yes.. this car can park the car for you.. with a touch of the 'Park Assist' button.
There are 3 types of parking that the car can park for you. Mainly, Reverse Vertical parking. Parallel parking IN, Parallel parking OUT
But you would still need to engage the gear to forward or reverse and also step on the accelerator and brake. The only thing you do NOT need to do is to steer. The car will do the steering for you.
Notice there's another USB port in the compartment there. I like the idea that they have a few of these ports for me to charge my phone or wadever.. See.. my wallet fits perfectly well inside the compartment at the right side of the steering wheel. :)

Armrest for the back seat passengers with drink holders.
After the armrest is pulled down.. a flap can be pulled down to create a hole where you can reach ur hands to the boot. Main purpose of this feature is for you to insert long items like poles which the boot can't fit.
HUGE Boot Space!
13 LED Lights.. there's a LED in the main lamp as well.
Nice unique vertical design of the backlights.
There's a small light underneath the side mirror when u unlock the car and also when u get off the car.
Nice rims.. that seems like you have a double rims in there.. with a double Shades of GREY!
The keys are a little too big though.. but at least its not ugly! :P
 And this car is FAST! It comes with a 3-cylinder 12-valve DOHC Turbocharged engine.
Even when I'm not in the Sports Mode.. the car still feels pretty powerful.. so needless to say when it is in the Sports mode. It doesn't lag. In the sports mode.. when I really stepped on the accelerator and pushed its limit.. in a short time its already at 80-100km/h without me knowing. In another words, the car is very stable also. Thumbs Up Peugeot! I really Love the SpOrts of iT!

Panoramic Roof Opening Demo.
It actually benefits more to the passengers sitting behind, becos the front passenger and the driver couldn't really see wads on top when they are looking in front. But well.. I still like the feature! ;)
a photo taken at my friend's condo.. it looks cool~!
 In the daylight..
my dog to bid Goodbye to you all!
Hope you enjoyed this post!
Last but not least.. I'd like to thank Nuffnang & Peugeot for choosing me as the winner for the blogging contest!
It was really a good drive!
