The tail lamps… those are a treat to the eyes

I got Cat Pawed by this one, and quite liked it. The second generation Peugeot 3008 is a refreshing departure from the previous one. While the old car came across looking more like a raised MPV with the rear seats removed, this one looked the part of a proper SUV.

Proportioned Portions


Maybe at first glance, it could be hard to put your finger on the styling. Radical headlamps with the front bumper notched into them. And daytime LEDs lining the top, with their line continued in the form of a decorative air vent at the top of the front fender. The 3008’s front grille does resemble the mouth of a grinning filter-feeding whale, which may take some time getting used to.

Compact in-size, Peugeot did know how and where to do a few folds on the side of the car to deliver an illusion of a slightly sleeker and lower-slung car. Silver trim abound does however sit on the fence of making the 3008 either more expensive looking or just plain tacky.

The tail lamps… those are a treat to the eyes, but the bane of anyone who would be washing them. Tri-bladed light emitting units, with indicator and reverse lamps neatly tucked below, and above a kink in the rear sheet metal, which separates body from tail light cluster.

But not all of this external décor is just for plain looks, the 3008 does come with a set of roof rails, for those who feel the need to load on more displays of lifestyle.

I must say that I did have quite a good service experience with SwiftQuote in my recent endeavour to sell my car. One of your agents by the name of Ian was rather extremely helpful in getting me two quotes.
