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.

We reckon mid-spec Allure trim is worth the extra, though. It adds a 10.in touchscreen infotainment system with sat nav, 18in alloys and a slightly posher interior. You also get extra safety including blind spot monitoring.

This refined 1.5-litre diesel engine has a bit more low-down urgency than the similarly powerful Puretech petrol and sits in a lower BIK group, too. It is pricier to buy, however.
