The picture was taken at the old town wall in Zadar, Croatia featuring my wife, my two sisters, and our hero the 207 SW. I leased a Peugeot 207 SW while working in Split, Croatia during spring 2013. We received it in Nice, France and drove it through Italy before ferrying Ancona to Split.
This car was a dream to drive- responsive, excellent mileage with the manual transmission diesel, good traction when we ran in to snow in Croatia, easily stayed with autoroute traffic (Italy, France and Croatia), excellent handling on very twisty Croatian coastal and island roads, and easy parking in minuscule spaces. The navigation system was flawless.
Visitors came in waves (sisters, children, grandchildren, friends) and the 207 SW taxied us all over Croatia (Dubrovnik, Zadar, Plitvice Lakes, Brac, Rab, ...) without complaint even when loaded with parents, kids and luggage.
We then returned it to Paris over a two week period visiting as many places as possible (Pisa, Siena, Florence, Avignon, Dijon, ...)
Both pickup and return were seamless.Definitely will lease again.
