The 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.
The Peugeot 3008 was highly commended by the Thatcham judges for its high levels of both passive safety and active safety technology.
The Peugeot 3008 hit the UK market in November 2016. There are four trim options to choose from, with a range of engines. To see what we thought of the rest of the car’s abilities, read The Car Expert review of the new Peugeot 3008.
