Getting bigger: the Peugeot 2008 GT crossover

It's hard to pinpoint how or why some cars can lift your spirits from the moment you sit in to drive. Some, of course, have the opposite effect - as I've learned to my cost several times.

Take this week's review model, the Peugeot 2008 GT. It is a much more powerful (and expensive) version of the cars in the French firm's small-SUV range - some of which I have driven, indeed reviewed here, this year.

Ordinarily, I would just mention it in passing because I don't hold much with the petrolhead salivations that often accompany a bit of power and performance in cars of this ilk.
