Peugeot 3008 review - now with AWD and 300hp!

Need help buying your next car? Click and my team and I will help you choose your ideal car at a fair price - from Mat Watson!
This is the new Peugeot 3008!
Now some of you may look at the 3008 and think it looks remarkably similar to the previous version. And to be fair, it does! But of course, it’s only a mid-life facelift, so wholesale changes to the design weren’t to be expected.
However, although there are a few noticeable styling updates, there’s one key area which has seen a big overhaul - the engines on offer! Along with your usual petrol and diesel options, there are now two plug-in hybrids to choose from, with the class-leader being 1.6-litre turbo petrol which comes with two electric motors to produce 300hp!
So it looks good, and the performance sounds great! But should you be choosing the 3008 over the likes of the SEAT Ateca or VW Tiguan? Stick with Mat to find out!

  • Can you name an SUV which you can buy for under £30,000 which looks better than the Peugeot 3008? We'll wait...

    • @oli's _vlogs have you seen mats review of that car? If not, you can't say it's better than this. These features add on to the price of the car, and the peugeot also has these. In my, and many other reviewers opinion, the Peugeot is better. There is a reason even the last model got car of the year.

  • Peugeot is a non-starter in Australia. Even the importer won't spend a big dollar on ads, yet they are great vehicles. I bought a 3008 GT Line a year ago. Needed a smaller car to fit the garage. With a budget to buy virtually any small/medium SUV, I looked around. For value for money, the Pug is streets ahead of BMWs, Audis, Volvos M-Bs etc. It drives very well, lots of tricks and just nice to have features. I looked at so many alternatives, but value for money and just the style beat the opposition.

  • I need a four wheel drive and I was looking at one of these but then another article prompted to to ask " whats the wading depth?" I need to know as the road past my home floods in winter. The answer I had from Peugeot was " it doesn't have one!" This prompted further research discovering a lot of these hybrids and plug in hybrids can't handle water beyond their floor pan. So the all wheel drive and raised ride height are misleading if you are looking for a 4x4.

  • When would you be sufficed by what a car gives. Every time I listen you would say something is not as good an other car and would say if you click on the pop up button at the top right corner of the screen. When we click there we'll get an another car. Amidst its review you would say some other car is better in some sorts and asks to click again on the pop up button and it goes oooooooonnnnnnnn. I wish there would be a car which would help you to stop saying other cars are better. Let it be any company you would never even the top class cars to be at least 90 % perfect. I'm tired of this. Now you probably be wondering if you are so tired of this why would I be still watching this and commenting. Its because I believe you would make a difference. We won't comment on anybody whom we think won't listen to us. I believe you would understand what I'm trying to say rather than judging me as an arrogant punk. I love the jokes you would say as well as the criticism you would make. They are all fair and reasonable to say. But when you criticise a car consider it's price range, think what you would get in that price range, and stop comparing it with cars at greater price range. Thank you.

I'll most likely be upgrading to this when my finance is up.
