And there’s nothing wrong with that. However, for many other people, cars are so much more than that. Continue reading

This does not bode well for our Euro-holidays. Continue reading

Peugeot 2008 Update: The PureTech GT-Line

I reviewed the latest Peugeot 2008 last year, HERE. Then, it was a diesel-engine version in Allure trim. It was a fine modestly-sized SUV which I described as being an ideal small, economical family car. The 2008 is based on the 208 supermini but, although heavier, offers more versatility and space.
