Verdict

Final thoughts and pick of the range

Tangibly more practical and interesting than a 308, this is SUVs done properly

Crossovers, SUVs, whatever you want to call them… we have trouble recommending them, by and large. No matter how sweet to drive (Ford Puma) or high quality inside (VW Tiguan), they rarely offer much over the hatchback they’re based upon, short of a taller driving position.

The 3008 makes its extra size and height feel genuinely useful, though, and with its surprisingly low kerb weight and lithe handling, it’s not hamstrung by its additional heft over a Peugeot 308. As a significantly newer fangled car, it offers so much more than a 308, in fact; its interior and wealth of tech are particular highlights.

We’ve long since admitted defeat to these things. People like SUVs, and people buy SUVs. In vast numbers. If you intend on adding another to the roads, look here before anywhere else. The Peugeot 3008 is one of the best.
