Overall Rating

Revisions to the Peugeot 3008 have significantly improved the pseudo-SUV's aesthetics. It’s still fast and well-equipped, but it's uninspiring to drive and the lack of space does mean it’s not as practical as the looks suggest.

For
  • Ample performance from smooth 1.6 turbo engine
  • Quality, premium-feeling interior
  • High equipment levels
Against
  • Cramped rear legroom compared to rivals
  • Stiff ride, so-so handling
  • A little on the pricey side
Performance

The updated Prince 1.6 litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine is linear and full of torque, pulling the 3008 forward with conviction, although absolute punch is slightly blunted by the car’s relatively heavy weight. Six-speed automatic shifts fairly smoothly and swiftly.

Ride & Handling

The 3008 has a rather firm ride that doesn't translate into controlled body movements, rolling a fair bit through the corners. There is, however, good grip and and an accurate, albeit light steering, so it’s not too bad.

Comfort

The 3008 remains hushed and smooth even at high speeds, with engine, tyre and road noise all at comfortable levels. The seats (now power-adjustable for the driver) are very comfortable and deliver excellent support.

Safety

Among the top of the class in this regard, the 3008 comes with a full complement of six airbags, ABS with EBD and Brake Assist, stability control and rear ISOFIX points. It also has a five-star Euro NCAP safety rating.

Space

The 3008’s imposing exterior belies its rather small interior, and rear passengers in particular will find legroom to be at a premium. Still, it is at least fairly flexible with 60:40 folding rear seats, a multi-height boot floor and a split tailgate, and it has a decently-sized 512 litre boot.

Value

With the facelift bringing in a sizeable premium over the previous model, the 3008 now sits at the more expensive end of the segment, second only to the Ford Kuga. You still get a lot of kit though, including a navigation system with a seven-inch retractable screen, panoramic roof and a colour head-up display.
