Summary


The Peugeot 3008 is a medium-sized SUV/crossover, which was launched onto the UK market in 2017 and replaced a people carrier model with the same name.

The 3008 has received unanimously positive reviews, with scores ranging from good to outstanding. It has been the highest-ranked medium-sized SUV/crossover in our Expert Ratings index for the last two years, although its current Expert Rating of 75% (as of August 2021) has now fallen behind the Skoda Karoq..

The Peugot 3008 has won numerous awards both in the UK and overseas. It has been particularly praised for its design, comfort, practicality and driving dynamics. More recent reviews have not been quite as favourable as those when the model was new, as the Peugeot i-Cockpit design is not to everyone’s taste and some newer rivals are considered better performers.

An updated model arrived in the UK in early 2021, which is a facelift of the existing car rather than an all-new model.

The Peugeot 3008 has not been lab tested by Green NCAP. This is a new initiative, launched in 2018 as a sister organisation to Euro NCAP. As yet, very few new cars have been tested for environmental impact by Green NCAP, and inevitably the testing programme was halted in early 2020 by the coronavirus pandemic.

If and when the Peugeot 3008 is tested, we’ll publish the results here.
