Reliability & safety Rating

5.0 out of 5

The Peugeot 3008 achieved a hugely impressive ranking in the 2020 Driver Power survey and scored well in Euro NCAP crash testing.

Peugeot 3008 reliability

Modern car-building techniques mean a manufacturer or group of manufacturers can get more than one model out of a single platform – the mechanical skeleton that underpins the bodywork. The Peugeot 3008 is no exception to this trend, and it shares many hidden parts with the Citroen Grand C4 Picasso MPV, as well as the Peugeot 308 family hatchback.

The 3008 came a mightily impressive second place out of 75 cars in the 2020 Driver Power customer satisfaction survey, scoring highly in every category including reliability. Such a high score is indicative of how pleased 3008 owners are with the car as an ownership proposition, which is obviously very encouraging if you're considering buying one. 

Safety

Euro NCAP – the independent body that assesses the crashworthiness of new cars – toughened up its test criteria recently, so it’s good to see the Peugeot 3008 scored the full five stars when it was assessed. It scored 86% for the protection it affords adults and 85% for that offered to children. This is impressive, as many cars do an excellent job at safeguarding larger occupants, but post a lower result (often by as much as 10%) when it comes to smaller passengers. 

All 3008s get mandatory kit like electronic stability control, ISOFIX child-seat mounts, a tyre-pressure warning system and a seatbelt reminder. Peugeot also throws in a clutch of airbags and a camera that scans for road signs, relaying pertinent information to a screen on the dashboard.

A lane-departure warning system also comes with all 3008s, as does autonomous emergency braking. This latter bit of kit is one of the biggest developments in car safety to have emerged in recent years, with data indicating it helps prevent up to 38% of rear-end crashes.
