What alternatives should I consider to a used Peugeot 3008 estate?

The Nissan Qashqai is the obvious contender. Its boot isn’t as large as the 3008’s, but it has a better reputation for reliability; what’s more, it’s more enjoyable to drive and more comfortable.

If driving enjoyment is paramount, though, you’d be better off with a Mazda CX-5, which is a real hoot to drive. It’s also comfortable and endowed with a high-quality interior.

Another option to consider is the Skoda Yeti, which beats the lot of them on practicality thanks to its tall, square load space. It also comes with a range of economical engines and offers a fine balance of ride and handling.
