The Peugeot 3008 has gained more accolades than many of the brand's other models, & is regarded as the best Peugeot in a long time.
A fundamental departure from what people expect from Peugeot, & perhaps even prejudices about French cars in general, the 3008 is full of charisma. Not only is the car more in tune with current trends, but Peugeot has also pulled out all the stops to make the 3008 one of the best cars in a very competitive class.
The current 3008 arrived in 2016, with a smart look & improved practicality over its MPV predecessor. There's plenty of space inside for 5 (if you want more room & 7 seats, you'll have to go for the larger 5008, which uses the same platform as the 3008), while the engine range offers a decent mix of efficiency & performance.
The 3008 is good to drive, economical & has a great interior, making it a strong candidate for family buyers.
The exterior is more chiseled, coming with a vertical front end, a long flat bonnet, a higher waistline, wide protective bands, larger wheels, raised ground clearance, & shaped roof bars. All models come with a decent amount of kit, with 12.3-inch digital dials, 2-zone climate control & rear parking sensors all included, & the infotainment touchscreen is standard across the range.
Peugeot's attributes help it to compete in the fiercely competitive crossover class. Its main rivals are the Škoda Karoq & Seat Ateca, which share the same platform & similar offerings to the 3008. There's also the sporty handling Mazda CX-5, plus practical rivals such as the Ford Kuga, Renault Kadjar, Kia Sportage, Honda CR-V, Toyota RAV4 & Nissan Qashqai.
“The new Peugeot 3008 SUV is not only attractive to look at, it is also well thought out, enjoying performance & features are in line with the best in the segment & up to the reputation of the brand.”
