2017 Peugeot 3008 review: Practical, stylish and good value

Introduction

Responding to market forces, Peugeot has made the second-generation 3008 more muscular, more sophisticated and more substantial – less MPV, more premium-look SUV. This is a booming marketplace and the 3008 is a key family-focused model for Peugeot, one it hopes will build on the impressive popularity of the original in order to compete with rivals like the Nissan Qashqai, Seat Ateca, Skoda Karoq, Kia Sportage and more.

Verdict 8.0 / 10

Unlike the previous 3008, the new one has head-turning looks on its side and the interior is a high-quality triumph. The engines give strong performance and it’s precise but relaxing to drive. Super-fast steering and a super-small steering wheel take time to get used to, and a lack of four-wheel drive ultimately limits its 4x4-look pretensions, but having one of the most spacious and versatile interiors in the class goes a long way to making up for that. It's good value given the very generous standard equipment, too. Overall, the 3008 is another strong family car from Peugeot.
