PostSubject: Booked 5008 (my thoughts on other MPVs)   Sun Dec 06, 2015 4:30 am

Hi all, I've just booked the 5008 and hope to get before end year.

Took me a while to decide. Started with the Grand Picasso, then Zafira, 5008 and finally Grand Scenic.

After comparison and eliminating the rest, it was neck to neck between the latest Grand Scenic and the slightly outdated 5008 (new model BlueHDi coming in 2nd Q 2016).

GS:
New design, fiercer look, 17" black rims, LOADS of storage space (17 in total) and slightly more boot space with 3rd row up (can fit 2 cabin luggage bags between 3rd row seats and boot door).

5008:
More executive, serious look, interior finishing quality is very high, firmer drive. ETG 1st-3rd gear drive is a little weird and could take getting used to (I toggled to manual drive and used the paddle shifters)

I eventually went with the 5008 because the sales agent was upfront about many things e.g. I may have bought an "outgoing model" but the new model will require more maintenance (additive needed every 10k km for BlueHDi much like Grand Picasso) and they sold 30-40 MPVs a month, compared to Renault's 1-5 MPVs a month. FYI Citroen outsold everyone with 60 MPVs a month.

Also I felt the drive more firm and less "rolling" compared to the GS.

One other thing which pissed me off, was Renault giving me a "valid until end of day only" offer (I test drove the car at lunch time).

:p

I got a good trade in for my current car, and despite some minor issues during car inspection, the SA negotiated with car dealer to keep the $ at her agreed amount.

She did also throw in some freebies which matched what the other car brands provided.

I also go for the 5008 over the Grand Picasso becoz of the firmer ride.
