Lacks style and passenger space.

Advantages: Affordable, electric roof.
Disadvantages: Cramped interior.
I was involved in a car accident two weeks ago, and my own convertible (a Ford Streetka Winter Edition) has been written off. In the meantime, my very generous mother is letting me drive her car, an 03 plate sky blue Peugeot 206cc 1.6. This car is a little bigger than my Streetka, and benefits from an electric roof, larger boot space and back seats. The latter however are completely pointless as even my 5 year old neices feet are squashed up against the drivers seat even when it is fully forward!
I find the clutch biting point is way too high and am constantly over revving the vehicle. Also, it is difficult to find the reverse gear without navigating to 4th first (this has been mentioned by other people I know who also drive the same car). Another point, my mother and I are both petite (5ft and 5ft2") and yet our heads are very close to the ceiling. I cannot drive the car with the sun visor down as I am constantly headbutting it which is very irritating.
The exterior from the front looks identical to the standard 206, a little dated now I think. I have driven many other cars, all for many different lengths of time, and have gotten to grips with them easily. The peugeot 206cc however I am still trying to master. It has since been removed from my prospective new car list, and I will consider a more up to date cabriolet.
Summary: Ok for a midget maybe?
