No versions will break the bank. Even the crackerjack turbocharged 1.6-litre petrol engine has acceptable claimed fuel economy and CO2 emissions. The ultra-efficient e-HDi has impressive figures, but the best of all is the (expensive) Hybrid version. Insurance groupings are low, too, but the 3008 won’t hold its value as well as key rivals.
Peugeot 3008 4x4 quality & reliability
The 3008 looks well-finished from high-quality materials, right down to the switchgear, carpets and hidden plastic bits. Mechanically, most parts are already tried and tested elsewhere in the company's range. The car was awarded maximum points for reliability in the 2012 JD Power survey.
Peugeot 3008 4x4 safety & security
Peugeot is renowned for its diligent approach to safety, and the 3008 has earned the full five stars in Euro NCAP crash tests. All models come with six airbags and electronic stability control as standard, but if you occasionally do a spot of towing or trekking up the odd green lane, you may want to specify Grip Control. This electronic system allows you to choose between five different settings to boost traction on slippery surfaces.
