Inside

the added ride height is actually helpful for older folk who would not need to duck to get in and out, and you do also get a commanding view from the driver’s cabin

We certainly like how the French are bold with following through with their design, building an interior which gels with, and is as radical as its external styling. Taking centre-stage on the dash, and nestled within the metallic surround of the cockpit, is a series of metallic functional buttons which work in tandem with the infotainment unit, featuring an 8” display. Wireless Qi standard charging is available, and mobile devices are connectable via Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

A bold use of materials, on the dash, with a well-thought of mix of plastics, metal and even fabric is certainly attractive. Sadly though, we did wish more attention could be paid to the accuracy of fit, as the metal trim against the door cards and the dash, did not match up, and similarly with all the other panels, we did find gaps appearing at the joints. With all the different angular bits and pieces to be assembled, accuracy would definitely be challenging during mass-production. An ‘A’ for their bold effort though.

In the driver’s seat, and you will find that ergonomics are quite decent, without form taking over function (at least too much). Most functions of the car are easy to find on the infotainment unit, all thanks to the physical buttons, although I would find that a more direct access to controlling the air-conditioning would be preferred, especially when starting up on a hot day.

In-line with their quirks, the flat-top-flat-bottom steering wheel feels a tad tiny in your hands, but does allow you to view the digitised 12.3” instrument display from above the wheel, instead of through it. Like its sister car, the 3008, the gear shift is a black banana-shaped lever, with a manual toggle at its base… toggle away…

While the SUV looks is all show and no off-road-go, the added ride height is actually helpful for older folk who would not need to duck to get in and out, and you do also get a commanding view from the driver’s cabin.

Middle row passengers get individually adjustable seats, and left and right passengers benefit from a set of robust fold-down trays sited behind the front seats. The third row is easily deployed, and entry and exit is actually better than some of the competition, and rear legroom has also improved by a very slight 24mm, and is still best reserved for kids, or for very short journeys.

Cargo space is generous too, with 520 litres readily available in people carrier mode, and with the rear seats folded flat, you easily have 780 litres. Fold the middle row down, and cargo room extends to a ginormous 2,150 litres. Now you can pack in everything AND the kitchen sink! As a plus, the rear row is removable altogether for added flexibility. No, they do not double as beach chairs… I know what some of you may be thinking.
