Which used Peugeot 3008 estate should I buy?

Even the standard Active-spec Peugeot 3008 is well equipped with dual-zone climate control, rear parking sensors, automatic emergency braking, Bluetooth, DAB radio and a digital infotainment cluster. It doesn’t come with sat-nav, but to make up for it, you do get Apple CarPlay and Mirrorlink. This means you can use your phone’s sat-nav on the 3008’s 8.0in touchscreen.

Our recommended trim level is Allure, because you get everything from Active, plus blindspot monitoring, active lane keeping assistance, auto-dipping headlights, a driver attention monitor, sat-nav, interior ambient lighting, power-folding mirrors, front and rear parking sensors, a rear-view camera and 18in alloy wheels. The front passenger seat can be folded down, too, which helps when carrying longer items. Allure doesn’t cost that much more to buy than Active, yet it adds so many nice features to the 3008 that it really helps it to feel like a premium product, without having to spend too much.

The two top trim levels look rather expensive in comparison. GT Line puts plenty of other styling items on the equipment list, but the only really valuable items are full LED headlights and wireless phone charging. GT is reserved for the most expensive engine option: the 178bhp 2.0-litre diesel. It features adaptive cruise control, keyless entry, a powered tailgate, 19in alloy wheels, a panoramic glass roof, leather trim, an electric driver’s seat with massage function and wood trim to replace the cloth inserts on the doors and dashboard.

When it comes to engines, if you are looking to cover plenty of miles, the 1.6 120 diesel would be the one to go for. With a useful 19bhp more than the 99bhp version of the same engine, it has enough power to get it going with a full complement of passengers aboard, yet it is still just as economical as the lower-powered option and the 1.6 is much more refined than the more expensive 2.0-litre diesel.

If you don’t need or want a diesel, the 1.2 three-cylinder turbo petrol is a smooth and punchy alternative. Above 1500rpm, it revs keenly to the limiter and, when you aren’t hustling it, can be reasonably fuel efficient.
