The first generation Peugeot 3008 may have been able to win a few plaudits, but the design wasn’t the most of attractive as it looked more like an MPV rather than an SUV. The second generation model is now here, and that has fixed this issue.
In fact, it’s quite a striking looking car, which is just as well as it will need to stand out in the overcrowded SUV market. It needs to be more than just a pretty face though, does it have other things that matter to buyers? Is it safe? Is it comfortable? Is it well-equipped? Is it practical?
I recently had the chance to test one to find out. The model tested is the Allure trim level, which is one up from the base model and is priced from £24,565. It’s fitted with the 1.2 litre PureTech petrol engine which offers 129bhp and 230Nm of torque.
Mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox and front wheel drive – no four wheel drive is available – it’s about to hit 62mph in 10.8 seconds and the top speed is 117mph.
What’s it like to drive though? Check out this video review to find out.
