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.

With a 0-62mph time of 8.9 seconds, the Hybrid 225 isn’t massively quick, and while its claimed all-electric range is only one mile short of the Hybrid4 at 39 miles (WLTP) (expect a figure closer to 25 miles in real-world driving conditions) this has some serious tax implications for company car buyers.
