    Thinking of getting a 4008 4x2 Active.

    It's a basically a restyled Mitsubishi ASX. Drivetrain is pure Mitsubishi as well, as is the interior.

    Had one as a loaner once. CVT gearbox is an acquired taste, I found myself always using in manual mode. Acceleration in auto mode meant it was sit a contant amount of revs while accelerating. Stick to the manual I think. It was easy and inoffensive to drive, engine performance was ok but nothing special.

    It did feel like I was driving a Peugeot, rather it felt like the Mitsubishi that it was.

    I would probably look at the 308 instead, however if you are after a manual, you are stuck with the base model hatch or top end GT.

    Sorry I meant to say it didn't feel like I was driving a Peugeot. It just felt like I was driving a typical Japanese car, very competent, but nothing special to drive.

    Yes the 3008 is released this week. Perhaps $10,000 more than the 4008 though...

    Have you looked at a 2008? It's a bit smaller, but it's a genuine Peugeot.
    Regards,
