Peugeot 3008 Overview: Practical Family Workhorse

Peugeot 3008 overview including: engines, transmission, trims, equipment, price and cargo capacity

The Peugeot 3008 is a practical and likeable crossover class vehicle. Strengths include the split tailgate that makes it easier to slide in large items such as furniture. There is no lip to overcome as with a hatchback, after all. The tailgate also doubles as a seat. Furthermore, the floor of the boot is variable height. Its lowest position creates a vast area and raising it forms separate compartments for cargo. Capacity is 512-litres rising to 1,604 with the rear seats flat. Such figures eclipse some estate cars. The Peugeot 3008 also has 5 doors, 5 seats and numerous cubbyholes including door pockets big enough for 1.5-litre bottles.

Peugeot 3008: Engines

The Peugeot 3008 range incorporates petrol and diesel engines, plus 6-speed manual and 6-speed automatic transmission. The latter has manual mode that enables motorists to select any gear manually without a foot operated clutch. The 1.2 Puretech, 131hp, petrol engine propels it to 62mph in 10.8 seconds and – if teamed with “energy saving” 17” wheels rather standard 18” - averages 57.6mpg and emits carbon at the rate of 115g/km. With larger 18” wheels, this engine averages 54.3mpg and the emissions increase to 120g/km.
