Starting from just £9,495, the 2018 Peugeot Active builds on the Access trim to offer more bang for your buck, without breaking the bank. Available in the 3-door hatchback and 5-door TOP! Cabrio, this version is ideal for the driver who wants a lot more, for less than expected. In addition to all the features you’d find in the Access, the Active boasts manual air-conditioning, 50/50 rear-folding bench seats and 15-inch steel wheels with ‘Brecola’ trims, as well as Peugeot’s newest addition – a 7-inch touchscreen system, plus Bluetooth to keep you connected. There’s more to enjoy on the outside too, with a host of exterior options, including several personalisation themes and paint colours, making your Active speak a little more to your own style. Inside, it’s the same story, with ambience packages that can be tailored to meet your preferences. Enjoy leather touches, rear head restraints and driver seat height adjustment – designed to make your journey as comfortable and luxurious as you want it to be. The 5-door trim plays the perfect host to yet more features, such as a retractable fabric roof, two rear ISOFIX mountings, and LED daytime running lights – imbuing the car with class, security and added visibility. The engine options include the standard 1.0 litre VTi, plus the VTi with Stop and Start technology – the advancement that’s revolutionised urban driving – and that’s only scratching the surface. The new 2018 Active isn’t just for show after all – with serious performance, protection and eco credentials, it’s proving to be a real contender in the city-ready hatchback market.
