Snap poll: which French family chariots do you prefer?




Following our snap poll last week on which of the VAG crossovers our readers preferred, this week I thought we’d jump off from the debut of the newly crossover-ized Peugeot 5008 and ask our reader the question: which of the French family chariots do you prefer?

Which of the French family cars do you prefer?

About Krzysztof Wozniak

Kriss grew up in Poland reading German car magazines, before moving to England and graduating to the British magazines, which he still considers the best in the world and continues reading them after he’d moved to the US. In college he promised himself he’s buy himself a used Porsche before he turned 30 (not to be accused of having a mid-life crisis), but instead family needs dictated a Subaru Outback. Still waiting for that perfect moment to buy a used 2008-ish Cayman…

  1. What makes the 3008/5008 a “faux-roader”? The vast majority of owners of SUVs never go off-road. Peugeot offers Grip Control so when someone wants to get muddy or goes skiing they can. If your biased as a writer at least give the reader some explanation instead of only loose words.

    I voted for the Kadjar. Very complete crossover with a nice design. The Scenic is the best looking car in my opinion. Renault proves an MPV doesn’t have to look dull.

  2. Why do you call the 3008/5008 the faux-roader?
    Just because they don’t offer AWD as an option. Newsflash: barely any of the crossovers on the street nowadays have AWD.

    I can tell which french car I prefer IF…….you inform their prices and if they are Automatic or Mechanical
    I would pay more for a better design? YES ! … BUT …..just 12- 20% more, ¿for an automatic? ….YES ! 15- 20% more

  4. Carlos Tomic says:

    Otherwise your question should be “considering only the beauty of design, ¿which french car looks better to you?

  5. I don’t like Kadjar. It is quite good looking (not interior) but cheap build and with very small engines-range. I know that this is Quashqai sibling but still… way behind Tiguan for example (Nissan is also crap – my opinion).

    But C4 Picasso is simply genious! Ernogomy, technology, style, space, quality! I think it has no serious competitor in it’s own class.

  6. Martin Christensen says:

    I’ll never buy a French car. Never ever ever.

Let me know what you think of this article. Thanks!
