    I personally don't like or use most of this technology that's banged into today's motors. As a driver that covers many miles & hours driving each week I've found out what i really use/need on a day to day basis & it goes like this , a good drive , compliant ride , good steering feel , good brake pedal feel , nice gearchange , good seating position, ease of use , controls i use regularly to hand ( indicators , wipers , radio , heater etc ) & a well built body with a hard wearing interior . Technology i use / want , ABS brakes , heated rear screen , good heating/ventilation system , electric front windows , good sound system & a good reliable & drivable engine that makes for a good all round car. Everything else i don't need or never use (cruise control , heated windscreen , sat nav, heated mirrors , moving mirrors , parking sensors , reverse park cameras , heated seats , electric seats , lane control departure warning , head up screen displays , panaromic glass roofs , heated washers for cleaning your windscreen , automatic headlights , automatic wipers etc etc etc ) The wife's juke has some technology as I've just mentioned & i never use it . I don't judge a good car by wether it's crammed full of technology you probably don't need or will never use. My advice would be to just enjoy your new Mokka it'll get you around just as good as the Peugeot would.

    As I said, depends what you want from a car, one to get from A to B or one that delights you every time you get in it.
    I have driven for over 40 years from Anglia, to a Wartburg (what some might say!) a Volvo XC90 (nice car) to a dozen others.
    I too in my earlier years drove many miles every day up to 300+ and I began to hate every minute, now in the happy days of semi retirement my car is a toy and something to love rather than a mode of transport.

    Wow! Mine was blue and of course in those days there was no such thing as self serve filling stations and the attendants thought I was stupid when I asked for oil to be added to the fuel!
