Peu­geot 5008

CAR (UK) - - Our Cars -

MONTH 6 By Alex Tap­ley

I’VE JUST com­pleted a 1584-mile trip the South of France and back with my fam­ily, storm­ing the péages like a Ger­man ex­ec­u­tive. Come o– the im­mac­u­late toll roads onto the twisty stu– and the 5008’s crashy ride comes to the fore.

In the south you can only ad­mire the French brand loy­alty; Peu­geots are ev­ery­where. Less so up north, though, where the usual sus­pects from the rest of Europe are more nu­mer­ous.
