Leasing a Peugeot 3008
Engines and performance for the Peugeot 3008
The Peugeot 3008 is available with either petrol or diesel engine choices, plus a useful hybrid option. The petrol engines include a 1.2 litre unit or a 1.6 litre offering with the choice of two diesels - either a 1.5 litre or a 2.0 litre BlueHDi. These make for a better choice for those who are racking up lots of motorway miles, but the Peugeot 3008 hybrid is also worth considering and its electric motor is mated to a petrol engine to produce 225hp and this power is delivered via an eight-speed automatic gearbox. The diesel engines return around 56 mpg, while the 1.2 litre petrol engine delivers 47 mpg - the 1.6 litre unit returns 40 mpg. The hybrid is the most economical choice with Peugeot saying it will return up to 236 mpg with emissions of just 28k/km.
Equipment and handling
The Peugeot 3008 has racked up lots of motoring awards and it's easy to understand why once you get behind the steering wheel. It's a practical and well-designed car that is a sound choice for families – it’s easy to drive around town and on long journeys. The hybrid was unveiled for 2020 and there are two choices for those interested in boosting their fuel economy. The petrol engines deliver a sprightly performance and the suspension deals with rough roads really well and it's an excellent performer on country roads and sharp corners. With extensive use of soft touch materials, the interior is a lovely place to spend time and it's a premium offering - much better than many of its rivals. The stylish dashboard has an attractive 8-inch infotainment touchscreen and every model has the firm's i-Cockpit and a 12.3-inch digital instrument display. In recent years, Peugeot has improved its build quality and the 3008 has performed well in reliability surveys. Basic safety kit includes autonomous emergency braking, lane departure warning, stability control and speed limit recognition. Other models come with driver attention assist, lane keeping assist and blind spot detection. Standard equipment includes climate control, automatic lights and wipers, alloy wheels and rear parking sensors. There's also smartphone connectivity, a DAB radio and a leather steering wheel. Other models come with wireless smartphone charging, a 180° parking camera, keyless entry and adaptive cruise control. Essentially, the Peugeot 3008 is an excellent family car choice and as a crossover SUV there's a lot to like about it, including the premium interior, the easy handling and low running costs. If a family SUV is what you're after, then you should take a closer look at what the 3008 has to offer.
