I've heard Brits complemention this and the new
3008.

But it's Faux Wheel Drive so cannot be anything but uncool.

Typical Peugeot bank-of-switches dash, no?

A bit like an architectural model of a futuristic new civic centre.

Even **** has its integrity.

French cars have a lot going for them ..... if you choose carefully. Bit like choosing the odd FCA product....

30 years from now, nobody - nobody - will be making a living out of selling or maintaining 5008s. It comes, it goes - no one cares. Scrap yard fodder from day one.

Looks like they tried to make an a-b family car interesting whilst forgetting to actually make it interesting. Peugeot trying too hard one again, uncool

A neighbour has one of these and the details are interesting. Look at one.

Our Mito-owning critic obviously hasn't looked at the mad headlamp/bumper combo or the piece of headlamp in the bonnet shut.

I saw them but it still strikes me as Peugeot trying to be something it's not. It's a good sales tactic though which is what Peugeot are good at considering you see so many on the roads

Dear Lord preserve us.

This wouldn't be cool if we locked it in a refrigerated container and towed it out to Antarctica.

At least it's just a boring family crossover and not pretending to be a 700bhp sports car.

But trick is by definition more interesting than "boring". The sculpture of the skid plates is less boring than that of an Ewok.

You can look at the details in isolation and find them interesting. But what I find most interesting is why anyone thought it was good idea to put them all together.
