Engines and Driving Experience

Peugeot 3008, Driving

As with many modern SUVs, you can find a used 3008 with either a petrol or diesel engine. There is even a petrol/electric plug-in hybrid version too.

The regular petrol engines come in the form of a 1.2-litre with 129bhp, or a 1.6-litre petrol with either 162bhp or 178bhp which can return between 35 and 48mpg. The diesel variants come in the form of a 1.5-litre with 129bhp, a 1.6-litre with 118bhp or a 2.0-litre with 147bhp or 174bhp - and can return between 41 and 60mpg.

The petrol plug-in hybrid is the most economical and powerful, with either 221bhp or 295bhp - the latter version offering 0-62mph in just 5.9 seconds, with 157mpg possible.

To drive, the 3008 offers a decent overall experience, with higher-spec models with auto transmissions offering the best comfort and refinement.

Practicality and Running Costs

Peugeot 3008 Boot Space

Sitting above the 2008 and below the 5008 in terms of size, the 3008 is the mid-sized SUV in the Peugeot range. It offers plenty of interior space and a massive boot - with 591 litres of space, 1,670 litres is available when you fold the rear seats too.

To run, a blend of frugal and punchy engine choice within the 3008 range ensures that despite the large SUV proportions, the 3008 running costs are not going to be an expensive affair.

Servicing is also reasonable, and we can actually do this at any of our official Evans Halshaw Peugeot retailers.

Interior, Technology and Safety

Peugeot 3008 Interior

The stunning Peugeot i-Cockpit ensures the interior of the 3008 is both stunning and full of tech. Team this with quality feeling materials, and lovely Peugeot design and the 3008 offers one of the best SUV interiors around.

A large central infotainment touchscreen, and striking switchgear furthermore cement the 3008's flair, whilst a small steering wheel ensures driver feel is also strong. You can even get some properly-premium massaging seats in top-spec models.

You can also get certain models with Grip Control, featuring special tyres for mud and snow, ensuring winter driving is safer and less hassle. Lane keeping assist, blind spot monitoring and high beam assist are also available on certain models within the range.

Overall, a full five-star Euro NCAP safety rating shows how well the 3008 fairs in the safety side of things too.

Is the Peugeot 3008 right for me?

If you are in the market for a medium-sized SUV, that actually offers practicality and quality matching larger SUVs, the 3008 is a great used example which will certainly make you feel a little smug.

One of the best-looking used SUVs available, the 3008 really does offer a fantastic package of style, economy, cutting-edge tech and safety. And with there also being a plug-in hybrid electric version available too, it is a hugely tempting used SUV proposition.
