What's the used Peugeot 3008 like?
Following the success of the Nissan Qashqai, Peugeot wanted a crossover of its own and the Peugeot 3008 was born.
Instead, of trying to ape an SUV, it's more of an MPV with a high driving position and a spacious, airy cabin. The approach worked, because it was named as our Car of the Year in 2010.
The cabin seats five, with plenty of head- and shoulder room in the back, but kneeroom is limited. A futuristic dashboard dominates the driving position and all-round visibility is good.
Wind noise isn't excessive, and road noise shouldn't disturb, but the suspension can thud on poor road surfaces.
The boot is a decent size, at 432 litres, and has a clever split-level storage system. This, along with split-folding rear seats and a split tailgate make the Peugeot extremely practical. As befitting a family-orientated car, the 3008 comes with six airbags, stability control and a five-star EuroNCAP crash-test rating.
