Peugeot 3008

(2017 - present)

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, and is currently the highest-ranked medium-sized SUV/crossover according to our Expert Ratings taken from across the UK motoring media. It has also won numerous awards both in the UK and overseas.

The Peugeot 3008 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 is set to arrive in the UK in early 2021, which will be a facelift of the current car rather than an all-new model.

Body style: Five-door SUV/crossover
Engines: petrol, diesel, plug-in hybrid
Price: From £26,905 on-road

Launched: Winter 2016/17
Last updated: Autumn 2019
Replacement due: Winter 2020/21 (facelift)
