Peugeot 3008 1.2 PureTech vs Toyota C-HR: performance
And we started with Measurements of our Technical Center in performance. Dynamically, point out first that, in terms of behavior, we are certainly facing two SUV that stand out for their good setting and very remarkable comfort. In this sense, it is true that in terms of strict agility, a Seat Ateca or Ford Kuga show a direct and immediate response, but both Toyota C-HR and boast a 3008 Peugeot tactfully driving and a very good balance between softness, comfort and precision.
He Toyota C-HR is developed under the same platform Prius, It is very light to be a hybrid, very pleasant to use and improved at all levels, only conditioned by the normal operation of automatic electronic drive, high-performance but with a response response somewhat slow acceleration and stretching over-long regime. Convince … as well of course a Peugeot 3008 which is always perceived very refined road. With a design that draws much attention, not particularly light (even weighs 2 kg more than C-HR-and that no extra batteries nor electric motor), but always gives a great performance today and can boast to be the only SUV of its kind, next to the Seat Ateca, with petrol engine only 3 cylinders.
Valuing and data, there is no doubt: in performance, unmitigated victory for this Peugeot 3008 1.2 PureTech. And victory in everyone, absolutely everyone, paragraphs.
