Peugeot HyMotion4 Prologue - High seater family vehicle
The fact that such a hermaphrodite existence can be successful was already proved to us by Peugeot with the 307 SW, which wanted to be both compact estate car and compact car - and succeeded. In the case of the 3008, everyone must decide for themselves whether the hermaphrodite existence can also be visually appealing I don't really like it though. At the back, it looks as if the designer had started to draw a compact van and then somehow tried desperately hard to force in the SUV above the rear light design in the last moments before handover. Fundamentally, the 3008 is a compact van with SUV style features and no more.
But still more authentic than later tarting up a "pedigree" compact van all round by adding cheap plastic components and selling it as a 'cross'. It can but be hoped that Peugeot will also offer the 3008 in a FWD version (unlike the 'cross' competitors), in order to lend some credibility.
