The new Peugeot 3008 takes a radical departure from the car that came before it. Where the old one looked ungainly and frumpy, its replacement is one of the sharpest family crossovers on the market. So the looks are sure to catch the eye, but how does it drive? Is it good enough to tempt buyers away from rivals like the Nissan Qashqai or the SEAT Ateca? Find out as I put it to the carwow test in my full in-depth review.

We have a 3D printed EJ20 Subaru boxer engine, as well as a 22RE Toyota inline-four engine. We’ll start fairly basic and work our way through several different topics for each layout, including the four strokes, the firing interval and order, the vibrations of each layout, the packaging differences, the cylinder head differences, and finally a bit about the sound. Looking at either layout, they’re both based on the same four strokes. Intake, compression, power, and exhaust. Both engines fire one cylinder for every 180 degrees of crankshaft rotation, but they have slightly different firing orders. On each engine, we can see cylinders one, two, three, and four. For the boxer engine, the firing interval is one, three, two, four, while on the straight four it’s one, three, four, two, so the order of the last two cylinders firing is switched. On the boxer engine, you’ll notice the pairs of pistons move in and out together. This means that the primary forces when the piston reaches the top of the cylinder, as well as when they reach the bottom of the cylinder, are canceled out. On the inline four cylinder engine, it’s the same story, the primary forces cancel out as the pairs of pistons reach the top and bottom at the same time. When we get into secondary forces, however, the engines begin to differ. Secondary forces are created due to the piston traveling faster at the top half of the piston than at the bottom half, something I’ll include a link to in the description for a video that breaks it down in great detail. What you need to know though, is that when the piston reaches the very top of the cylinder, or the very bottom, the secondary force points up or out from the piston. Now with the boxer engine, since the pistons point opposite each other, these forces are balanced out, resulting in a very smooth running engine. For the inline four, all of the forces point in the same direction, and thus do not cancel each other out, causing the engine to vibrate unless balancing shafts are used. The boxer engine isn’t perfect, however, because the pistons do not perfectly align with each other, it creates a rocking moment which makes the engine want to rotate back and forth along the vertical axis. What’s fascinating, however, is that if you add two cylinders to either of these designs, whether it’s a boxer six or an inline six, you can perfectly eliminate all first and second order forces and moments. You might think the boxer six would have a rocking motion from the cylinder banks of three, but each bank of three cylinders cancels out the rocking motion of the other, unlike in a V6 configuration. The other biggest advantage of the boxer engine is the low profile, which keeps the center of gravity low and thus reduces the amount of load transfer you have in the car during braking, cornering, or accelerating, which improves grip. With a lower center of gravity, you can also reduce body roll and choose to use softer springs. Additionally, in the event of a collision, it’s easier to position the engine so that it goes underneath the passenger compartment, rather than into the passenger compartment, for improved safety. That’s not to say the inline four doesn’t have it’s own size advantages. Generally it’s a bit more compact, with only one cylinder head, and it’s not quite as wide as the boxer engine. This leaves more room for suspension geometry, and can also allow for a better steering angle, since the tires won’t have as much of an interference at full lock.

If you want your car to serve you longer and save money on expensive service and maintenance, pay attention to these simple yet really important rules. Experts recommend a few things to keep in mind and a few common mistakes to avoid to make your car last longer. If you stick around till the end of the video, we’ll tell you how you can fix a cracked windshield with garlic. Having the correct tire pressure is a sort of “Goldilocks” situation. If it gets too low OR too high, you can have serious problems. Don't forget about seasonal tire changes and remember to swap your front and rear tires at least once a year. Sharp acceleration and abrupt braking might feel like fun, but they’re actually extremely harmful to vehicles. If you decide to park on an incline and put your car in Park, it puts too much pressure on the transmission. In rare cases, it can even become dislodged or break down. So the best option is to use the emergency brake. With the help of the symbols on the car's dashboard, your car can tell you when something's wrong, like when the engine's overheated, something's wrong with the electrical system, or the brake fluid level is too low. Go to an auto repair shop as soon as possible to save yourself from expensive repairs or even an accident. Weighing your vehicle down excessively does nothing good for the car's suspension, steering, transmission, tires, and engine. Plus, overloading increases fuel consumption and makes the car more difficult to handle. Remember that cars, just like people, need regular check-ups and “health” tests. Music: Retro - Wayne Jones https://www.youtube.com/audiolibrary/music TIMESTAMPS Keep your tire pressure in-check. 0:40 Take it easy on the gas and brake pedals. 2:03 Park correctly. 2:42 Don't ignore the dashboard. 3:54 Don't forget about vehicle inspections and repairs. 5:13 Avoid overloading. 6:03 Don't overload the clutch. 6:50 Bonus: fix a cracked windshield with garlic! 7:18 SUMMARY -Check your tire pressure at least twice a month (but once a week is even better). While adding air to your tires, make sure they aren't warm to the touch and don't overfill them. -If you’re a fan of sharp acceleration and abrupt braking, remember both of them are actually extremely harmful to vehicles. Plus, you’re just burning more gas than you need to. -Avoid throwing the car into Park before coming to a full and complete stop. The same goes for putting the car into Drive or Reverse before stopping fully: don’t do it. -If you notice the engine light flashing while you're driving, slow down right away because this might be a sign of a serious problem. The brake light lets you know that somewhere in the braking system something has gone wrong. -Check your car’s manual to find out how often you should change your oil or air filter and remember that a lot of it depends on your driving habits. Get yearly inspections and keep in mind that routine maintenance will depend on the season and the mileage. -Get acquainted with the maximum load capacity for your car and stick to it. Try to get rid of all of the useless stuff in your car. -Don't hold the clutch in at long traffic lights. During short stops, shift to Neutral and press the clutch right before you start moving. -Take a clove of garlic, cut it lengthwise down the middle, rub the cut side over the crack, and wipe away the excess juice with a paper towel or napkin to keep the crack from getting worse until you can get it repaired.

It is not unusual for the large multinational car makers to create China-only models. What is rare though, is for one to launch a car in the Far East only to bring it to Europe a year later; something that’s about to happen with the C5 Aircross.
The C5 Aircross uses the same EMP2 platform as the Peugeot 3008 and 5008, as well as the Vauxhall Grandland X and recently-launched DS7 Crossback. It’s one of the most distinctive Citroens for some time, and furthers the expressive design language first seen with the C3 Aircross late last year.
Outwardly, the C5 Aircross stands out from the crossover crowd – but despite its big wheels and rugged body detailing there’s no four-wheel drive option. Still, that’s a trait we’ve become used to on PSA’s latest SUVs and for most that simply won’t matter.
Our early drive took place in China, where engine choices are limited to 1.6 and 1.8-litre petrol turbo units. European models should gain a diesel option. The Chinese C5 Aircross is available in four trim levels and our 1.8T came in range-topping ‘Flagship’ specification.
While the C3 Aircross comes with 85 body and roof colour combinations, there are just five paint options for the Chinese-specification C5 Aircross. On our white test car it was jazzed up slightly by the addition of red highlights on the front bumper, air intakes, roof rails, and Airbumps.
Inside, it is visually attractive with numerous brown inserts offsetting the charcoal grey Claudia leather seats. The materials aren’t as plush as in rivals like the Volkswagen Tiguan or even the Renault Kadjar, though, feeling more on par with cheaper models like the MG GS. Hard touch plastics dominate, and the leather doesn’t feel particularly premium, though it’s likely European cars will see an improvement in this area.
Thanks to an opening panoramic sunroof, the cabin feels light and airy. Rear passengers are treated to plenty of headroom, although legroom could be better with the front seats set back. Unlike in the C3 Aircross, the rear seats neither slide nor recline. They do though feature an easy release mechanism for folding them down, and the boot floor can be raised to offer a flat floor. The boot itself is a sturdy and a capacious 516 litres, trumping the Ford Kuga’s 406-litre load bay. An electric tailgate featuring foot activation allows easy opening when carrying loads, too.
On the road the Citroen’s setup for comfort soon becomes apparent. Progressive hydraulic cushions ensure a soft ride, which seems at odds given the hard seating. While it does a good job of soaking up bumps, attempting a slalom manoeuvre at speed saw the car wallow from side to side. There are five settings for the traction control including snow, wet and off-road.
With over 200bhp on tap the engine should provide spirited performance, but ultimately it fails to excite. Hampering the engine’s effort is the six-speed automatic gearbox, which is the only transmission offered on Chinese models. Whilst initial acceleration is reasonable, it becomes particularly sluggish at mid-range speeds with the 50-70 mph jump taking forever. Addition of a manual gearbox for European models should go some way to rectifying this problem.
