Crossover lovers take note. The Peugeot 3008 Active 1.6 VTi is now available from only £15,495 on finance. According to the motoring manufacturer, this time limited offer represents a £1,700 saving. As such the total cost breaks-down to thirty-six payments of £279.77, plus the perfectly reasonable £5,423 deposit. The typical APR is 0%, which is great news for your long-suffering bank account. Gotta love zero interest finance offers.

The Peugeot 3008 is more capable than its questionable looks suggest. In fact, What Car? named it 'Best Crossover' in their Car of the Year Awards 2011. This class of machine - at least in theory - combines a traditional hatchback, off-roader, and multi- purpose vehicle in one package. As such, this award winning family workhorse has some distinctive features. The spilt tailgate, for example, is a nice touch. This opens like a pick- up truck for quick access, or more widely to accommodate larger loads. Very Land Rover.

The Peugeot 3008 Active 1.6 VTi has confident handling and a supremely comfortable ride, Furthermore, it hits 62mph in 11.8 seconds and averages a reasonable 40.1mpg. There is a spacious boot too, so it can carry 1,604-litres worth of What Car? magazines. This falls to 512-litres with a full complement of five passengers. Standard equipment includes: air-conditioning, electric front windows, and the CD player. Not bad for £15,495.
