Our Peugeot 3008 Review Covers:

Peugeot 3008 Key Features

  • Fresh design with new side-scoops in the bumper and a frameless grille
  • High quality and stylish interior with an innovative squared-off steering wheel
  • 520-litre boot, which expands to 1,482 litres with rear seats down
  • Range of petrol, diesel and hybrid engines
  • Three trim levels, including Active Premium, Allure, Allure Premium, GT, GT Premium

Design, Practicality and Boot Space

The Peugeot 3008 is one of the most stylish SUVs on the market. Recently refreshed in 2021, design updates include new side-scoops in the bumper and a frameless grille that gives the 3008 a fresher and more contemporary edge. Scrolling indicators and smoked lenses at the rear were also added as part of the refresh.


Inside the 3008, there's plenty of space with lots of leg and headroom in the back seats, which is more than the Nissan Qashqai but not quite as much as the Renault Kadjar

At the rear, the 3008's boot can hold up to 520 litres, expanding to 1,482 litres with the rear seats folded down. The boot is well-shaped for easy packing and is much bigger than its rivals, such as the 430-litre Nissan Qashqai and 510-litre SEAT Ateca

The 3008's boot also features a fully removable floor and a handy storage net for keeping items steady in the back.

Interior and Trims

The Peugeot 3008 has an excellent interior and is one of the most stylish in its class. The quality matches its looks with high-class materials used throughout.

All models get Peugeot's latest i-Cockpit display, which incorporates a 12.3-inch screen behind the wheel similar to Audi's Virtual Cockpit. The i-Cockpit allows you to change the layout of the dials, decide what is displayed and show sat-nav directions directly in front of you.

Five trim levels are available, including the Active Premium, which comes with an eight-inch infotainment system that supports Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, cruise control, automatic wipers and headlights. You also get dual-zone climate control, parking sensors and a reversing camera. 

The Allure model adds a panoramic roof, lumbar support for the driver, Peugeot smart beam assistance and blind-spot detection. You also get tinted windows and 18-inch alloy wheels.

Allure Premium builds on the Allure model and adds keyless go, blue ambient interior lighting, aluminium roof rails and fabric inserts on the dashboard and door panel.

The high spec GT model is the most luxurious in the range. It comes with adaptive cruise control, leather seats with electric adjustment and heating and silver roof rails. You also get a sports interior with Belomka cloth trim, a black diamond roof and 19-inch alloy wheels. 

The top of the range GT Premium comes with a 10-inch infotainment system, blind-spot monitoring, lane keep assist and a smart electric tailgate. You also get a 360-degree camera, a Focal audio system, sports interior with Alcantara seat trim and 19-inch San Francisco alloy wheels.

Power and Performance

Under the bonnet, Peugeot offers two petrol engines, two diesel, and two plug-in hybrids with a range of different power outputs.


Petrol choices include a 1.2-litre PureTech 131bhp with manual transmission and 1.6-litre petrol with an automatic gearbox and 179bhp. The smaller 1.2-litre engine is the most efficient.

Diesel options include a 1.5-litre BlueHDi 130 128bhp and a 2.0-litre BlueHDi with 179bhp and automatic transmission.

Peugeot also offers a front-wheel-drive HYBRID 225 and an all-wheel-drive HYBRID4 300 plug-in hybrid. Both use the 1.6-litre 179bhp petrol engine, combined with a single electric motor for the 225 version and dual electric motors for the 300 variant. 

On the road, the Peugeot 3008 is arguably better to drive than many of its rivals, as it feels softer and more forgiving over bumpy ground. The chassis soaks up bumps that you tend to feel a little more in rival SUVs with sportier pretensions, such as the SEAT Ateca. 

The overall driving experience and its great practicality make the Peugeot 3008 an excellent leasing option, especially for growing families

Steve Peugeot 3008 Crossover 1.5 BlueHDi GT Line EAT8 *Incl. Special Paint*

My only complaint about the vehicle would be that having to use the central screen to adjust the climate control is a distraction while driving. Some frequently used controls should be mechanical dials and switches. Other than that I am delighted with the vehicle.

Stuart Peugeot 3008 Crossover 1.2 PureTech GT Line Premium EAT8 *Incl. Metallic Paint

This is a great value for money car. My first automatic and will not go back to manual. Great extras such as heated front seats and back massage for driver. Even better if’s? - maybe remote defrost for front and rear windows but to be fair, you pay a lot more for this on other makes and vehicles.

Jonathan Peugeot 3008 Crossover 1.2 Puretech GT Line Premium

After having two 2008's, I was keen to give the 3008 a try as I think it's a nice looking car. It's certainly spacious and comfortable but it's a bit of a sloppy tank to drive, especially in my local country roads. It's also the first petrol car I've had after 3 decades of driving diesel and I really miss the economy. Since I'm usually driving alone or with only one other person, I'll go back to the 2008 next time.

Peter Peugeot 3008 Crossover 1.2 PureTech Allure EAT8 *Incl. Metallic Paint*

The vehicle is excellent, however due to Lockdown a lot less travel has been possible and this is reflected in the very low mileage driven this year and this in turn has meant that cost has been a lot more expensive per mile than it would have been otherwise.
