The Peugeot 3008 is a compact crossover like the Nissan Qashqai, Kia Sportage and Skoda Yeti. It's quite an old car now and is starting to feel like it, but it's still a decent car. One of the reasons it's still holding up pretty well is that it offers something a little different to most of its rivals. Peugeot focused on practicality rather than style when designing the 3008 – and as a result it offers a bit more functionality than cars like the Qashqai and Sportage. It's sort of a mix of a hatchback, an SUV and an MPV – with a big 4x4-inspired exterior, a spacious and versatile interior and the agile driving dynamics of a family hatchback.

There are three specification levels on offer with the 3008: entry-level Allure, Active and top-spec Access, plus a hybrid version called Hybrid4. All come with a level of interior quality several rungs above what we were used to on Peugeots prior to the launch of the 3008. Equipment levels are impressive, too, plus all models are competitively priced. There's also a range of efficient engines and an ultra-economical hybrid model.
