Puretech or DV5R?

It's excellent, layout wise. Make sure to get the configuration without the center console (don't know if it's available with a manual) and the electronic parking brake. You'll have almost completely flat floor between the front seats (just a low storage bin where a handbrake normally would go). 
Easy to move around in the cabin without either on the way.

My 13D Flair manual is a year on, just been serviced at 6800 miles average mpg was 52.2mpg.
During lockdown, the +Ve battery lead ( of the sprung type) nearly came off, resetting the service for a month ahead, and it seemed to knock out a few warning indicators.
Since service, the car seems similarly peppy with passengers and luggage as previous with just me on board.
Possibly there has been a reduction of injecting diesel into the catylitical converter.
My best just me driving had been 58mpg, today 3 up with beach luggage, did 80 miles 68mpg, incredible economy.
One point of note, is NOT to load the engine, so 1500/2000 rpm,quite often sm using 5th not 6th sub 60/65mph as above NOTABLY more economical and flexible on subtle hills.
6th works best 70mph plus.
For info the chasis is not as previous VAN typebut PSA as Peugeot 5008,C4 etc
