Complete with a passenger-side grab handle, an electronic handbrake and enough switchgear to keep an airline pilot happy, the snazzy centre console totally dominates the cabin. It effectively splits the front section of the cabin in two, and places the driver at the centre of the action. The lofty driving position gives a great view of the road ahead, but the stereo is fiddly and you have to stretch to reach it.
Peugeot 3008 4x4 space & practicality
There’s plenty of head- and shoulder-room for five adults, but rear kneeroom is a bit tight. The boot is far more impressive, because it’s big and has a clever three-stage floor that lets you divide the space in two. The rear seats are easy to fold, too, thanks to a couple of levers located either side of the boot – a gentle tug sends each section of the 60/40 split seat back tumbling onto the cushions. The split tailgate makes the 3008 even more practical.
Peugeot 3008 4x4 equipment
Entry-level Access cars come with electric front windows and air-con, but we reckon it’s worth upgrading to Active trim for its alloy wheels, automatic lights and wipers, parking sensors, cruise control, powered rear windows and Bluetooth. SR adds sat-nav and Allure models get climate control, a panoramic roof and a head-up display.
