What Car? says...

Whether you’re a fan of the Peugeot 3008’s looks or not, one thing’s for sure: the French firm has certainly tried to give its small SUV a striking appearance. It taps right into the current trend for aggressive styling, whereas its predecessor, a previous What Car? Car of the Year, looked frumpier and more like an MPV.

 

Then there's the swish interior. Compared with the functional dashboards of rivals such as the Nissan Qashqai and Seat Ateca, the 3008 is more akin to a motor show concept car, with its plentiful mix of materials and avant-garde design.

Yet beyond the visual stimuli, the Peugeot 3008 needs to be practical, cheap to run and good to drive if it’s to succeed in this extremely competitive class. Read on to find out exactly how good it is, and which engines, trims and options we recommend.
