Peugeot 3008

Peugeot 3008 - highly commended in safest new cars 2017 awardsThe new Peugeot 3008 is a massive change in direction from its predecessor, which was a dumpy-looking MPV. The new model, however, is a stylish crossover aimed at the still-booming urban SUV market.

Using the modular EMP2 architecture already underpinning the Peugeot 308 hatchback and Citroen C4 Picasso models, the 3008 scored five stars in its Euro NCAP crash tests. Intelligent Speed Adaption is standard on all trim levels, which can limit the car to not exceed the posted speed limit.

    Hi Richard. A car is legally considered brand new when it is first registered, not when it was built. As long as the car complies with all legislation at time of registration, it doesn’t matter how old it is. It is very common for cars to sit around for months or even more than a year after being built before being registered.

    Your new car warranty commenced on the day it was first registered, not when it was built, so you haven’t lost anything there. A dealer is not obliged to tell you when a car was built, although if you ask then they have to answer you honestly. They are also not required to disclose minor damage unless you ask about it.
