THE current all-consuming passion for driving more macho cars in the form of SUV models at the expense of the humble hatchback is causing a problem for some motorists.For most of these vehicles tend to be larger than many people want or even need.There are a few models out there, however, that look the part but have dimensions which make them easier to fit into your garage or even park at the local supermarket.Take the newly revamped Peugeot 2008, for example. With its tall stance,...

THERE was a time when French car makers would have sniffed down their noses at the very idea of making an SUV.I recall travelling to France in Range Rovers and Land Rover Discoverys and having a sense they were really something of an oddity on the other side of the Channel.It was rare to see another one - certainly when one was in more rural areas of France off the beaten path.However a lot has changed in the automotive industry since then and SUVs and crossovers have become all the...

PEUGEOT'S latest SUV has only been on the road since the start of the year - but has already racked up a host of awards.Named European Car of the Year for 2017, the 3008 is the highlight of a dizzying few months for the French car maker following the announcement it was scooping up the Vauxhall and Opel operations in Europe from General Motors.The second generation of the French motor manufacturer's SUV is a quantum leap from its predecessor with award-winning engines and an...

A GOOD big one always beats a good small one, and few MPVs come bigger than the Peugeot Traveller.Launched to compete in the executive travel market but considerably undercut the longer established players, the Traveller is a serious MPV.There is a massive 27-model range in the Traveller series, based on Active, Allure, Business and Business VIP trim levels using 95, 115, 150 or 180bhp diesel engines only without any petrol alternatives. Prices at the moment rise from about £28,000...

FOR fans of legendary TV cop Columbo, motoring heaven is not a superfast Aston Martin, just a battered old Peugeot.Wearing his crumpled raincoat and smoking his famed cigar this scruffy sleuth would drive his trusty 1959 Peugeot 403 convertible to round up the bad guys in a way that would put Sherlock Holmes to shame.Played by Peter Falk, Columbo became a cult figure so it is hardly surprising that there is a wave of excitement among his followers that a car just like his is up for...

IN a world of Captain Sensible and the family-first car every so often something happens to restore laddishness, and here it is.Those Calvins you wear, Bill Grundy's, trolleys, skid pants call them what you will, well now you can own a pair of crackers in which to cultivate casual vegetables while beating off the elements with a sturdy foundation garment.This is a Swedish idea to save the world through banana hammock recycling and not as exciting as it seems.Oh yes, there we were...

THERE'S an easy conclusion to draw with a car range that doesn't feature a single petrol-engined model - they're all heading for the company car park.Where, despite the current downer on diesels, the smelly fuel looks likely to rule the roost for some years to come.For drivers who do interstellar mileages in pursuit of the next deal, diesel still makes compelling sense, even if the neighbours turn up their noses at the very thought.And with the latest tech on board (including a tank...

WITH an all-new engine and an eight-speed auto box in its manifesto Peugeot is revamping its 308 range of hatchbacks and estates.Due for release later in the year the new-look model continue the French brand's move upmarket.Smartened up inside and out the latest 308s come with a bold new face that includes the jewel-studded grille from Peugeot's SUVs, distinctive light clusters front and rear and a new 9.7-inch touchscreen.There's also some extra technology including lane departure...

I HAVE long felt the need for a mid-life revamp.A bold new look together with the introduction of an excellent top-of-the-range model have long been on my wish-list, but alas it is only through some of the cars I drive that I can see the dramatic results a makeover can produce.The Peugeot 2008 compact SUV has recently undergone such a change and it's a transformation destined to add to what is already a sales success with the new flagship GT Line model the icing on the cake.The...

HOW is it possible to get yourself and seven friends to the races without anyone having to drive home?It's quite a conundrum isn't it - unless you can afford the serious fare that two taxis demand for such a 15 mile trip.My answer was to borrow Peugeot's large people carrier/minibus called the Traveller Business, and inveigle a non-drinking friend to drive.It was perfect for the task and carried us all there and back in fine style and excellent comfort.The Traveller is based on the...

MOTORING With Grandparents would have made a cracking title for one of those grainy fly on the windscreen documentaries about the way we were in cars, on coaches and aboard the steam train.Mr and Mrs Upton are orf to the English Lake District having packed essentials onto the rear seat, including the trusty primus, and loaded young Stephen into the boot.Preston by-pass here we come and a splendid day's motoring in prospect although wait a minute, Mrs Upton is getting in the wrong...

ONE look at the twin exhausts protruding like cannons from each side of the Peugeot 308 GTi tells you instantly that this is not the family hatchback you normally associate with this model.And if you had any doubts the price tag of £29,000-plus - compared to the entry level 308's £16,000-plus price - will tell you that this one is something special.The 308 GTi 270 is a car for drivers who are looking for high end performance but who also need all the comforts and space of a...

THE corks have been popping in the Peugeot halls of power after the company's 3008 SUV won the European Car of the Year award at the Geneva Motor Show.And it was no walk over because it snatched the honours in front of the noses of cars like the Alfa Romeo Giulia, Toyota C-HR and Volvo's V90 and S90 models - all cars which are formidable opposition to say the least.The 3008 SUV is a child of the race to produce vehicles of its genre with a marked premium feel for a price which is not...

PEUGEOT has released the first details of its new 308 range of hatchbacks and estate cars which are due for release later in the year.The third generation models will feature new engines and high-tech interior equipment including the sophisticated i-Cockpit instrument panel first seen on the 3008 SUV.A new 1.5-litre diesel engine producing 130bhp will make its debut in the latest 308 and with stop/start it already complies with the latest emissions regulations due to come in to force...

PEUGEOT'S 308 still looks fresh and appealing three years on from its UK launch.Design-wise it might be less adventurous than some of its competitors but its simple and stylish profile has certainly aged well, after being declared the deserving winner of the coveted European Car of the Year award in 2014.It's also a car that looks equally good in both hatchback and estate form, quite an achievement given estates often sacrifice a svelte profile for added practicality.As mentioned...

THEREis nothing like a cross country trip on a quiet evening to revive your flagging driving spirits.After about 8pm the roads get much clearer in many parts of the country and you can really enjoy the drive - wherever you're going.Obviously, it's better not to use the motorways if you can - no fun in that - and map out a basic route beforehand, even if you later decide not to stick to it.I recently had 180 miles to do on A roads, or 205 on the motorway - which would have been quicker...

YOU would have to live in a cave many miles from a main road to be unaware of the rise and rise of the SUV.The craze of the decade is drawing in new buyers and influencing car design like nothing else. And the term SUV, like the fashion for crossovers, is getting a bit blurred around the edges.For instance, the majority of sports utility vehicles aren't actually four wheel drive. And others have relatively low ride height by off-road standards.One such example is the recently...

THE GTI phenomenon of the 80s was a wonderful era for driving enthusiasts with several extremely good cars produced as a result. Peugeot, of course, was at the forefront with its 205 GTi.However, as you get a little older, you want something a little more than just brash power and speed. While your desire for something a little less ordinary may remain, you crave some comfort and refinement too. Which is where a ‘warm hatch' such as the extremely enjoyable Peugeot 308 GT comes...

IT must be the ultimate accolade for any car maker to have a new model win the coveted European Car of the Year title and that speaks volumes for Peugeot's new 3008 SUV.It's also the 21st prize for the five-seater car and for Peugeot the fifth model to win this prestigious title - the first being the 504 back in 1969.Appropriately at the time of the announcement of the 3008's latest COTY achievement, I was being collected at Melbourne Airport ‘down under' by an old family friend in...

THE new Peugeot Expert van has won its second award in two weeks by taking the prize for the Small Panel Van of the Year in the 2017 Vans A2Z Van of the Year Awards. The award was presented at a ceremony held at Twickenham Rugby Ground in London. The award is the third accolade bestowed on the new Expert - it was also named the What Van? 2017 Light Commercial of the Year and Medium Van of the Year in December.VansA2Z Editor, Neil McIntee, said: "Being based on a modular platform means...

IF you're looking to spice up your life and add a little adventure into the mix then the dynamic Peugeot 208 GTi hot hatch could be the perfect solution.It's fiery, beautifully compact, oozes character and is very, very fast. In fact the 1.6-litre 208bhp petrol engine fires the hatchback from 0-62mph in just 6.5 seconds with a top speed that redlines at 143mph.The vehicle is priced at £22,900 (£24,050 with options fitted) so it's not exactly a cheap option, but you do get a car...

WITHOUT resorting to the GTi from the range, the best performing Peugeot 208 is the sweet revving and decently fast PureTech 110.This is a supermini that weighs less than the 207 it replaced and yet offers more space inside.I recently drove the 1.2 PureTech petrol with the latest 110bhp power output and it's a cracker.It brings loads of fun and has such excellent economy that the diesel models in the range take nearly nine years to break even when all costs are taken into...

SO after a bit of baguette rattling in the general direction of US giant General Motors, PSA has bought Vauxhall/Opel.Well you can hardly blame them.The Donald probably thinks Vauxhall is simply a bridge in London and an Opel something you give our lass Ivanka.Now, not that long ago this would have been something of a joke. Fake news, even, if it had existed beyond the Sunday Sport.PSA, Peugeot and Citroen as was, hardly had the timbers of the big ships shivering.Citroen, for...

PEUGEOT has revealed a glimpse into the future of mobility with its Instinct concept, a unique shooting brake which offers the option of fully autonomous driving.Looking low and lean under the lights at the Geneva motor show, the one-off Instinct concept is powered by a combination of electric motor and petrol engine, offering a combined 300 horsepower.The car features both Drive and Autonomous modes, giving the driver the choice between an engaging drive and the convenience of a...

THE new Peugeot 3008 SUV has won the coveted European Car of the Year award for 2017.The car, which went on sale in the UK only a few months ago and is priced from £20,635, took the honours in this year's awards which were announced on Monday on the eve of the Geneva Motor Show in Switzerland.Peugeot is now the second biggest auto maker in Europe after Volkswagen following the announcement earlier on Monday that it was taking over Vauxhall and Opel operations in Europe from General...

THE Peugeot 3008 has rightly carved out a niche for itself in the SUV sector.Building on the strength of the smaller 2008, the larger car in the SUV family was an instant success when launched a few years ago and has now been extensively updated.Not only does it have the latest Euro6 engines and sophisticated powertrains but it's pulling in the latest in-car satnav technology.The improvements are not cheap and are reflected in a substantial price hike even before you select from an...

PEUGEOT may be stretching a point when it calls the latest 5008 an all-new car but they're not far off the mark.For starters it actually is stretched - and that makes it a very different proposition.With loads of room in the second row of seats, enough space in the third for a couple of growing teenagers and the possibility of the most enormous boot, the 5008 is looking to muscle into the territory occupied by the likes of the Land Rover Discovery Sport.Add in the Nissan X-Trail and...

SOME cars make you happy - in fact, they positively smile at you.Such is the case with the restyled Peugeot 2008, the company's compact SUV which received its makeover in May last year and has been on sale in the UK since July.The model, which is one of the company's most popular choices has sold 40,058 examples since the model was originally launched in 2013.And it is a genuinely cheery soul, a factor enhanced the ear-to-ear grille grin which is part and parcel of the current Peugeot...

IT MAY not be the most stylish vehicle in the world, but it's certainly one of the most practical for small businesses and families on the move.And now Peugeot's Partner Tepee is set to become one of the greenest and meanest multi-purpose people carriers on the road with the arrival of an all-electric version.With low running costs and a certified range of over 100 miles on a single charge, the Partner Tepee Electric could become a significant player for those who need a dual-purpose...

WHEN it was first launched Peugeot expected 3,000 orders for its new 3008 SUV - but got over 10,000.And having put one through its paces I can certainly see why.Not only is it sveltely good looking and purposeful but it drives well and easily on every kind of road and in every situation.It's a complete change from the last 3008, which was more a people carrier than an SUV - even though Peugeot tried to persuade us otherwise.The new model is available with 1.2 and 1.6-litre turbo...
