Was in Hursts looking at these yesterday, have to say it really impressed me. Yet to get a drive in one, but so far I'd prefer it over the Skoda Kodiaq. Just not so sure about ploughing the wrong side of £30k into a Peugeot though, Skoda is probably a safer place for my money...

I love driving these, We have 2 down here at the minute - One Auto & one Manual. Massive massive jump in build, design, quality from the previous generation one.

@Rocko the steering wheel is strange the first few times you drive one but is really comfortable and quite amusing on a twisty road when you get used to it.

@amg306 Fire me a PM and I can arrange a drive for you, always like to help an RMS'r out. At the minute the residuals on both the 3008 & 5008's are holding very well, it was Peugeot's aim to protect them when they launched both models - so far they're doing very well.

Tell me this, does it have a collision avoidance system? My mum had one as courtesy car and it would freak out going down the steep driveway. Almost to the point of cutting out entirely.

Or was it just being all Peugeot-y?

It does yes, if it was Allure spec or upwards, you can just about see the sensors above the rear view mirror in the picture. It usually doesn't cut in until you're moving over 15mph though? Front parking sensors do pick up on steep driveways and beep though.

As a guide, residuals on a pre-reg, or six month old Peugeot are great... Her 208 was a staff car from mainland, six months old, and had dropped £10k from list rrp by that point, we sold it a year later for what we paid on it.

My brother and sister in law picked up one of these in white a few months back, I'd never been in one before and was very impressed with the interior and futuristic dash look that Peugeot has incorporated. Whether it ages well or not remains to be seen, 'futuristic' designs sometimes look naff 10 yrs on but then again they may simply be ahead of the curve.

Regarding the steering wheel, once I got used to it I honestly thought why does more manufacturers not do a smaller wheel, great to use imo and made the 182's wheel feel like a bus wheel.

Where does one tick the 'children with no legs' box?
For a 7 seater I'm curious how I'd get kids in the rearmost seats?
The middle row slides back and forward, at its furthest back setting there’s not much room but if you slide then forward there is enough room for kids (or a small adult) in the 2 rear seats :cool:
