THE YOUNG LION
OUR NEW FAMILY CAR IS A YOUNG LION REPLACING THE OLD KING
15/09/2017 a new chapter in my motoring life, our beloved lion, King 307 is gone and the Family car's throne is empty...
GET OUT OF THE WAY! THE YOUNG PEUGEOT 2008 IS ARRIVED!!!
I had a driving lesson, and when I've finished a young and big lion arrived to catch me
HERE IT IS!!!
ON THE ROAD
ON THE ROAD
My dad (driving) and my brother were insulting a car in front of us that slowed down for no reason, I was amazed by the acceleration, it's big, it has 17" wheels, but it's very reactive
Note the Satnav, the Grip Control, and the LED roof; this car mounts the Allure equipment (Peugeot 2008 equipments: Active (basic equipment), Allure (Best equipnent, chrome bits, refined interiors and some optionals), GT line (sporty version))
Engine: 1.6l, 120 hp, Pure Tech diesel engine
Wheels: 17" with 4 season tyres (useless, in winter they can't drain all the water, and in the summer they wear out faster than summer tyres)
ON THE ROAD PART 2 WITH MY UNCLE
He enjoyed the driving, he said that it's really agile and reactive despite the height and the 17" wheels, (he talks in Italian and Lodi's dialect, maybe I'll add some subtitles, but now I can't my editing program is going mad), listen to the engine...at some point my brother tried the grip control, my uncle explained that he saw some videos on Youtube where in some offroad test tracks, a 2WD Peugeot 3008 with the Grip Control defeated some 4WD BMW and Audi
NOW IT'S MY TURN!
I tried it coming back from school, I really enjoyed it. The Peugeot i-Cockpit is very useful, the wheel is chubby little and the diles are higher, so the driver can see the speedometer and other diles keeping the eyes high on the road
I started the trip behind a slow lorry, bad luck, but when it turned away I've accelerated, and the huge car dashed like a cat, it's really good
on roundabouts I really enjoyed the steering wheel, it's a big car, but as it turned out it felt tiny
the 6-gears gearbox is perfect, but the third gear is a bit hard to select beacause the gearbox is new
the interiors are well refined, the central console is intuitive and practical
Dropping the rear seats the space is enough to contain a 49" TV, a pack of beer (15 bottles 66cl) and 6 water packs (6 bottles per pack, 1/2 litre)
WELCOME YOUNG LION
