Car pool? Lift club? Watch this space – Peugeot 5008

2012-04-20 11:05

Looks: There’s no mistaking the snub nose and slanted eyes of the French brand. The character bonnet may not have worked on some of the models, but it does on this mummy van – as long as the colour is bright and bold. The 5008 can seem bulky and intimidating to park, but looks can be deceiving.

Comfort: This is the kind of people mover you need on a long journey. Small children will be snug in the third row even with luggage keeping them company.

Likes: The panoramic glass roof blends with the windscreen to make passengers feel they can touch nature while encased inside. The electric handbrake gives more room, and the elevated front seats are big and comfortable. The head-up display with distance alert is like having a helper during those tired moments on long drives.

Dislikes: The wheels are too small for such a big car and the limited space between the door and the seat adjusters is awkward.

Price: From R282 000
