Peugeot 3008 – Carbuyer’s Best SUV of 2018

We’re barely into 2018 and Carbuyer has already rated the Peugeot 3008 at the top of its 'Top Ten Best SUV Cars' list.

By seeing off stiff competition from the likes of the Volvo XC90, Jaguar F-Pace, Audi Q5, ŠKODA Kodiaq and SEAT Ateca, the Peugeot 3008 clearly has a lot going for it.

This Peugeot SUV looks good – from any angle. It certainly has genuine road presence, not least because of its raised ride height, eye-catching front fascia and gently creased body. The 3008 is not just about appearances, however – it’s very well built too.

Practicality is a key factor when it comes to choosing any family vehicle, which is something this SUV has in abundance. For instance, it features wide-opening rear doors that provide enhanced access. The Peugeot 3008 easily accommodates four full-size adults – and is especially suitable for a family of five.

What’s more, a 520-litre boot space easily betters the one offered by the Nissan Qashqai (by 90 litres, in fact). It’s also bigger than the luggage compartment possessed by the SEAT Ateca.

The vehicle comes with plenty of efficient engine options. The most affordable is an entry-level 1.2-litre 130bhp PureTech unit, which manages up to 55.4mpg and produces 117g/km of CO2. Even more money is saved on fuel with a 1.6-litre 99bhp diesel unit installed – this returns as much as 70.6mpg, and produces emissions as low as 103g/km.

All models are fitted with alloy wheels, starting at 16 inches with Active trims, rising to 17-inch diamond-cut alloys with the majority of next-level Allure grades. Peugeot 3008 Allure trims also add fog lamps that provide optimal illumination when thick mist descends – and front and rear sensors, which are invaluable aids to parking.
