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; the Hybrid4 plug-in hybrid (PHEV) model will offer significantly 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.

Entry-level Active Premium trim is certainly worth a look if you aren't overly fussed about creature comforts. It gets all the essentials, including automatic emergency braking, power-folding door mirrors, climate control, automatic headlights, rain-sensing wipers, an 8.0in touch screen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto plus 17in alloy wheels.

This 1.2-litre engine might sound small for a family SUV, yet it’s more than up to the task. Performance is respectable and it’s frugal, too.
