Peugeot 3008 estate running costs
This isn’t the cheapest SUV in the class, but it is well equipped. Resale values are hard to gauge at this early stage, but they should be competitive with rivals such as the Nissan Qashqai.
If you’re a business buyer the 1.6 diesels’ lower CO2 emissions will make them cheapest on company car tax. They aren’t as good as the best 1.5 dCi Qashqai, mind, but they match the tax banding of the 1.6 TDI Seat Ateca.
While the 1.2 petrols can’t match the diesels for company car tax, they’re considerably cheaper and offer decent fuel consumption. This makes them a good choice for private buyers.
Peugeot 3008 estate equipment
All 3008’s come with dual-zone climate control, rear parking sensors and emergency automatic city braking. Even though the basic Active trim doesn’t have sat-nav, it does get Apple CarPlay and Mirrorlink so you can use your phone’s sat-nav through the 8.0in touchscreen. A DAB radio, Bluetooth, and digital instrument display are also standard.
Move up to our pick of the trims – Allure – and you’ll get blind spot monitoring, active lane keeping, automatically dipping main beams and a driver attention monitor, as well as sat-nav, interior ambient lighting, power-fold mirrors, front and rear parking sensors, a rear-view camera, and a folding front passenger seat.
The price starts to creep up when you hit GT Line trim, which comes with additions such as wireless phone charging and full LED headlights.
Top GT trim is plush, with adaptive cruise control and keyless entry among its benefits, but we still struggle to recommend spending this much.
Peugeot 3008 estate reliability
The Peugeot brand did well in our last reliability survey, finishing 12th out of 37 manufacturers. It’s too soon to tell if this level of satisfaction will apply to the current 3008, but we’ll update you on that as soon as we can.
From first registration you get a two-year manufacturer’s warranty, followed by a one-year dealer warranty, and AA breakdown cover.
Peugeot 3008 estate safety and security
Euro NCAP awarded the Peugeot 3008 its highest five-star rating in its crash tests. That's partly thanks to its standard six airbags, and mostly for the number of active safety features. These include blind spot warning, a speed limit display and an alert with automatic steering correction if you wander out of your designated lane from Allure trim upwards.
Importantly, all models come with automatic emergency city braking as standard, which should stop you hitting the car in front that’s just slammed on its brakes. Every model has a remote alarm and an immobiliser, too.
