Peugeot 3008

The Peugeot 3008 is Peugeot's first attempt at a 'crossover' vehicle, and it's a great effort  The big Peugeot mixes the attributes of a people carrier, a family hatchback and a 4x4. That makes it spacious, practical and high riding, so it's many things to many people. The ride is very comfortable, making the Peugeot 3008 a sensible family car purchase.

The 3008's striking styling marks a new direction for Peugeot and it certainly looks distinctive. The interior is even more impressive than the exterior, as it's exceptionally well built and very smart, which is a far cry from Peugeots of old. The 3008 is practical and easy to drive, too, while the HDi diesel engines suit it extremely well.

It looks the same as a regular Peugeot 3008 outside, but under the metal, this diesel-electric hybrid version of the car is so radically different to the conventional model that it deserves its own review. It's a four-wheel-drive MPV that promises up to 75mpg fuel economy and CO2 emissions of under 99g/km, making it one of the cleanest, most fuel-efficient people carriers on the market.
