The who 'Pretend' are on the rise. Obviously the civilized world realizes slowly that you do not need all-wheel drive on the roads of Europe, up to designated routes in Eastern Anatolia, Iceland and Northwest Russia, perhaps. Peugeot in any case is pleased how well the new 2008 will be accepted.
The 2008 is actually a 208 wagon, but is called crossover ('Pretend'). Just as tribal warriors earlier impressively painted and made themselves bigger against the enemy as they were, so one can also understand the special features of the 2008. After all, this includes an underride protection and the could provide possibly once good services. By the addition 'urban' it should be able to let off steam, especially in the city, making one completely stumped.
Car is more than just driving. And a roof rail is now an utensil for station wagons without SUV look. Although the 208 is 20 inches shorter and therefore more practical for the city, but also has fully occupied 25 percent less luggage space. So maybe the more intelligent car?
After all, one must not fear disadvantages because of the SUV look, only the higher center of gravity and a little too precious carpet in the cargo area. One is compensated with equal quality front, where you are staying more often. No frills except maybe the blue borders, but for the class very appealing and also even more userfriendly, e.g. the monitor.
Maybe the 208-typical small and deep steering wheel becomes accepted, although it only partially fits to the SUV look. Only the now somewhat outdated engine program, e.g. with only indirect-injection gasoline engines, might no longer necessarily be the state of engineering 2013. After all, the diesel engines achieve relatively good CO2 values with 2 valves per cylinder.
Otherwise, the 2008 is praised. Contrary to its outfit, it seems well prepared for the big trip, not only by the larger loading volume. Its spring system qualities enjoys the comfort loving more than curves acrobats. A very thick praise is due to the start-stop automatic, which shuts off the engine still while driving. The other manufacturers should think about it seriously once. 06/13
