Peugeot 301 is created for heavy external, bad roads and changeable climate environments. To find out how he gets along at our realities, we left to Zakarpatya, where they found not only various roads but also last spring snow.
Our route was broken on a few parts, and during the test drive we used two versions of Peugeot 301, but in one, to the most expensive acquisition of Allure. Good road from Kyiv to Lvov and back we overcame on 301st with a petrol motor (115 hp). And \"automat\". Relatively whole areas of way from Lvov to Mukachevo, as well as the broken roads of neighboring villages, and also snow-bound mountain passes were reached to the version with a turbo diesel and mechanical gear-box.
Undercarriage of Peugeot 301 with the bars of McPherson at the front and by a twisting beam behind for the time being seemed a \"strong nut\". At presence of in a machine with the turbo motor of two persons and simple luggage even overcame the large ruts of suspension without a hasp. For 500 km on the roads of Zakarpatya only once, in enormous pit, a front bar worked to the knock.
The petrol version of 301st conveyed us on far the best roads (except the Lvov streets), but on her we traveled already four together with a high-usage \"under a plot\" luggage rack. And here a pendant gave a weak spot. If the front remained the same power-hungry, then the back knocked on every fossil and dint.
Space is on business
Other trump of machine is a spacious salon. Even a large driver will find for itself comfortable position of arm-chair, possibility to adjust flight of helm is not enough only. And on a back row and quite expanse, at least the pair of our passengers of gallery higher than middle height about the lack of place did not grumble - stocked spaces in feet and above a head enormous.
In a trip especially pay attention a company and on a luggage rack. His volume in 506 L. fully had us. Only inconvenience is internal loops that mix to place a load.
Lateral is a bonus to two last levels of equipment, but only at the order of light salon. A rout computer is in all acquisitions of Peugeot 301, and leather sheath of steering wheel is a prerogative of the most expensive version of Allure. Mechanical gearbox needs to be preferred to those, who more often travels out of city, she will allow to compensate the lack of power even on a weak motor 1,2 L.
In Ukraine the cost of Peugeot 301 begins from a 107100 horns for a version with a modest, 1,2-with a capacity of one the L. motor (72 hp. p.) that the powerful indexes will satisfy with a quiet driver. The more temperamental can choose between 1,6-with a capacity of one the L. engines. Price more rapid, but \"gluttonous\" petrol 301st - From a 137600 horn young \"Reindeer\" with high-torque and economical turbo-diesel stands from a 142100 horns to Admirers of «automats» of Peugeot 301 with such transmission will cost 147400 horn’s, at least, to the end of year, while a version will not appear with a «robot».
