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, in which case the Hybrid versions are worth considering.

get the best price

Trim: Allure

We reckon mid-spec Allure trim is the pick of the 3008 range. It adds keyless entry, power-folding door mirrors, 18in alloys and a slightly posher interior to everything you get with entry-level Active. You also get a bit more safety kit.

Engine: 1.2 PureTech

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.
