Fashion's a very personal thing isn't it? Even so, we think there'll be plenty of used market takers for this car, the second generation version of Peugeot's 3008, launched in 2016. Like its predecessor, this was a family-sized Crossover SUV, but this time round, the emphasis was very much more on the 'SUV' aspect. There's lots of different design and extra features to set it apart from rival models and an efficient range of engines that'll satisfy more sensible folk.
It would have been hard to attach an SUV badge to the first generation 3008 with any kind of credibility. This MK2 model though, attacked that role with as much conviction as a modern Crossover buyer would want. What Peugeot realised here is that these days, a car like this must do more than merely look the part. It's a lifestyle choice, which means that it needs to be able to change aspects of your motoring lifestyle; the atmosphere you drive in; the way you can use the cabin instruments; the kind of mobility choices you can make at journey's end. This 3008 can make a difference in all these areas in a way that few other direct competitors in this class from this era can.
Of course, it also needs to get the basics right too. As before, this is one of the most spacious and efficient cars in its segment, attributes further aided here by the stiff, sophisticated EMP2 platform. True, the diesel engines can be a little noisy when pushed. And other models in the sector still handle better, but few of these ride the bumps as well and this time round, the excellent damping package has been matched with a slightly more involving on the road experience. In summary, this is in short, a very sophisticated kind of compact SUV. Crossovers, it seems, have moved on. To find out how far, try driving one of these.
