If its space and practicality you are after, the Peugeot 3008 provides a stylish crossover with the spacious feel of an SUV. With all models being well equipped, there are some nice touches added to the 3008 range, making this crossover comfortable, practical and stylish. In this model it includes 17" alloy wheels with energy saver tyres and the choice of different packs to personalise the style of your 3008.
The entry level petrol engine is a 1.6-litre VTi which provides 118bhp, but if you want something with more bite, the turbocharged petrol will increase this to 154bhp. For economy the 1.6-litre diesel hybrid returns 67.3mpg and is only £20 for annual road tax, thanks to the group B VED rating. There's also 1.6- and 2.0-litre diesel engines to choose from, which also achieve great economy, at around 60mpg.
Inside, the dashboard is very driver-focused and feels quite sporty, but with this crossover you also get a very commanding driving position. The automatic electric parking brake with hill assist is a great addition to this model, to make the worry of a hill start a thing of the past. This model also benefits from cruise control with a speed limited and a rear parking aid. Long journeys are no worry as the 3008 features air-conditioning, with a Radio and MP3 playback that has Peugeot Connect USB and Bluetooth connectivity. The five spacious seats allows for a comfortable seating position and luggage space is plenty, with a very large boot of 512-litres. This can be increased by utilising the handy levers in the boot, which creates a massive 1,604-litres, and with the use of the split-tailgate loading and unloading couldn't be easier.
Safety is covered in the 3008, which was verified by the full five star rating in Euro NCAP crash tests. All models have six airbags and electronic stability control as standard, but if you require extra grip for any off-roading, Grip Control is a worthwhile addition, which allows you to choose from five settings to provide the best grip on any slippery surfaces.
Overall, the Peugeot 3008 provides a practical and stylish crossover that benefits from great economy figures and the commanding driving position gives you impressive visibility.
