After enjoying a DS7 Crossback from Citroen for a while, French President Emmanuel Macron switched on Bastille Day to that car’s sister, the Peugeot 5008. The man evidently has a penchant for mid-range French SUVs, and we have to admit it is pretty cool.
It is cool because most men in Macron’s position would think of themselves as this big shot who deserves the best and most luxurious stuff. This guy though, he’s down to earth and is perfectly content riding around in a regular SUV which, for all we know, is not even bulletproof. Doing this Macron let the working classes know he is one of them while at the same supporting France’s auto industry. After all, it is a pretty big endorsement when the President of the country uses your products.
