    My car

    The 3008 was not an obvious replacement for my 2007 Landcruiser so it was only in desperation one wet Saturday afternoon that I eventually ended up at Peugeot where I sat in a 3008 and felt really comfortable. The cockpit is probably the best feature of this car - the 3008 manages to make you feel enveloped by the car and its controls

    The quality of the materials is surprisingly high with a good tactile experience thrown in; only the footwells and doors scuff areas have hard plastics

    Peugeot is all about the driving experience and the 3008 does not disappoint. What is a tallish car drives like an Audi A3 or BMW 3 series. The optional 18-inch wheels and dynamic roll control allow ridiculous cornering speeds – the low-profile tyres don’t affect the compliant ride and the extra cornering stiffness means that there is no body roll Most diesel buyers will go for the 1.6 litre, 112bhp engine but the 2.0 litre, 150bhp diesel is a real peach and more suited to the car. It is petrol-quiet but floor the throttle at 1,200rpm and just feel the shove in the back. A motorway trip shows 52mpg and around town shows 45mpg

    The styling is the curate’s egg. Some angles are quite pleasing others aren’t. The chip-cutter radiator grill (disappearing in the 2013 restyle) looks good but the rear-end looks odd

    The head-up display, panoramic sunroof with electric blind, automatic electric handbrake with hill-start, directional Xenon headlights and split tailgate are all really useful ga

    My car

    I took ownership of this car for my disabled daughter in February 2012 and I knew the semi automatic gear box would take a while to get use to, but there is a very dangerous problem with this gear box as the car will sometimes cut out when you try to pull away at a junction or traffic lights etc. There is a delay and its positively alarming as you might find yourself halfway out on a busy roundabout and the car just slows right down with no power. I have approached the garage and they say it must be the way I drive it! Well my husband uses the car and he has the same problem. I am very concerned and will be in touch with the garage again as I have to drive my daughter to school etc and its getting to be a bit of a nightmare for all concerned.

    My car

    Superb car. Very good suspension gives a very forgiving drive, 45MPG from the diesel engine with no effort. It's a very quite cruiser and the feel is of a much more expensive car. The steering is very light, the brakes progressive and the gadgets galore once inside. The boot is big and clever, with the split top/bottom set-up working very well. All switchgear is within the drivers reach and the sunroof lets in tons of light.

    The best car I've ever owned. If in doubt, get one - you'll not regret it.

    My car

    I tried as the next upgrade for my motability vehicle for my son. We drive a C4 G Picasso so looked at the 5008 first before this caught my eye.From what I have, this in a way is a downgrade size wise. The cabin itself is clean and modern and I personally like the neat touches of the grab handle by the centre console. Makes access easier. Instrument panels are good, though why so many switches for the headup display is odd. As for the Head up display, why not just incooprate digital instruments? Ride was good, nothing to exciting and pulling power was ok for the diesel I tried. Boot was ok for loading height and it's split level system. However, I won't be choosing this as my next vehicle due to 2 points which potential buyers with children or who carry others should bear in mind. 1. The rear seats are too cramped for legroom, especially if you have taller occupants in the front. Couldn't quite see my 11yr old siiting in comfort, let alone my 5ft son. 2. The middle rear seat is more a "board" than seat. It's the hardest ever middle seat I've come across. Should you have to put a passenger to sit on it, make sure the journey is short. Very short! On these 2 points alone, I didn't order the car and went for a Renault Scenic instead which in my opinion, betters this car on those 2 plus many, many more points including ride, space and practicallity. Don't own the car so mileage isn't known. I know this has been voted "Car of the year", but somehow, I don't see why.
