to be honest, the 3008 is a joke of a car. Pretty useless and horrible. The Giulia would have been a better choice. At least it's a properly new platform mated to properly new engines. Dreadful outcome for car nuts and petrolheads.

Wow..what a moaning bunch of

Wow..what a moaning bunch of whiners you lot are. Have you sat inside a 3008? It's a game-changer. The Brexit whingeing is gonna get louder when PSA ditch Vauxhall..I guess you can always vote for a Morgan. The very summation of our proud forward-looking automotive industry.
