Why does it look like this?
Remember 5008? No? Exactly. the last Fuddy-duddy MPV styling’s been replaced with a half-SUV look, in keeping with current trends. One part of Pug’s new age of actually-quite-goodlooking cars. GT spec means massive alloys and tech.
What powers this family ferry?
GT’s only powertrain is quick-ish 177bhp diesel and, despite SUV styling pretences, power goes to the front wheels only. Engine seems shrouded in insulation at a cruise but gets thrashy if you egg it on. Sport mode almost entirely useless other than bringing on a slightly snappier auto shift.
Resign myself to driving boredom?
A tale of two halves. Teeny steering wheel, darty handling and decent body control but the big wheels don’t like potholes and PSA’s trademark slushy pedals sweep away any expectation of brake feel or throttle response.
In a word, SUV; zeitgeisty styling bang on trend
