Peugeot 3008

Instead, a CUV to be the preferred term for such a of auto genres. Depending on the CUV is a smart utilitarian compromise or a crisis of identity.

In case wondering, CUV stands for crossover vehicle, a phrase that sets the heart pumping and the racing, at least when with a hefty cocktail of recreational drugs. But that of thing is not recommended when so let’s consider the Peugeot , which is indeed a CUV, in a and sedate frame of mind.

With its bland shape, of any typical urban family and its chunky wheels and heightened the 3008 looks a bit like else and nothing in particular. its most obvious competitor, the Qashqai. it stops a notable way of off-road styling and opts, for something more reassuringly The one concession to distinctiveness is the grille, a of ugly wide mesh is surely a homage to Richard ‘s dental arrangements as in Bond films of the late

If nothing else, the grille can helpful in car parks, when you remember where you parked. this is not the sort of car that buys to look at. It will be to look out.

Up front, the 3008 affords a and commanding view of the road. comfortable and easy to drive, a sense of security without cumbersome or heavy. One minor but not criticism, though, is the lack of a handbrake.

Why does it need an button when there are few of machinery more satisfying or than a good old-fashioned After all, there is a reason why it’s called a Never mind the hill what about the handbrake

What self-respecting getaway would attempt that skilled of manoeuvres with a electronic button?

Peugeot the car is the result of a process of hybridisation, a that, if it exists, should be only by deranged genii in sci-fis. Nevertheless, we live in an hybrid world in which is rapidly cannibalised, regurgitated and Perhaps the 3008 is proof the car industry will ultimately eat

But then, in its own oddly amorphous it’s a CUV that’s really tasty.
