Review

Stylish, practical and good to drive, the well-equipped Peugeot 3008 is one of the best family SUVs you can buy. Go for the entry-level 1.2 PureTech engine unless you're a company car driver; a Plug-in Hybrid model will offer lower monthly BIK payments. There are better PHEV SUVs out there, though, and the Skoda Karoq is an even more practical alternative to regular models.

get the best price

Pushes the 3008's price into the territory of premium-badged alternatives, so is hard to recommend. Highlights include a wireless phone charger and full LED headlights.

This 129bhp turbocharged three-cylinder petrol is smooth and punchy. Once you get above 1500rpm it revs keenly all the way to the limiter, and proves comfortably swift. It’s reasonably fuel efficient, too, making it a good option for private buyers. Comes with a choice of six-speed manual or automatic gearboxes.
