Peugeot 3008 Hybrid4

technology has been around for time, coupling an electric with a petrol engine, primarily to appeal to the US Japanese who traditionally prefer petrol diesel. Peugeot Citroen now jointly launched the worlds diesel hybrid, aimed at the loving European market it was the of these models, Peugeots Hybrid4, that I tested before Easter.

For the uninitiated, I ll try how the Hybrid4 works. Under the of the Hybrid4 is a 161 bhp 2 litre turbo which is attached to a manual 6 speed transmission that the front wheels. An 8kW generator the battery, which is located in the of the car with a 36bhp AC electric driving the rear wheels. provides 4 wheel drive the heavy driver shafts of a system.

Top speed is a respectable 118 mph, but the surprise is  a 0 62 mph time of 8.5 seconds, for a car of this shape size.

outside, the hybrid 3008 well the same as a petrol or 3008, although there is a hybrid logo on the exterior of the It s when you open the door the cabin, that the hybrid begins to be different.

Once sat in the seat, the first thing you is a dial in the centre console, the driver a clue that  car is not all it seems. The dial 4 modes to power the car, along with a  more auto gear lever, the driver to move off in the car.

The four choices are:-

which enables a 100% motor for city use, to 2.5 miles, before the diesel kicks in recharges it.

AUTO, the choice, does what it

SPORT, for faster gear for more dynamic driving.

for use in inclemental weather.

To be fair,I drove the car in Auto mode,  I it comfortable relaxing to drive the travelling nearly 500 miles on really quite enjoyed it. Furthermore, it also handles on minor roads is surprisingly for the driver for what from the anyway, appears to be an ordinary

Like a lot of French cars, the switch gear buttons to be over complicated. But after a few in the cabin, it  does all makes I particularly liked the pop up speedo control found the Bluetooth to set up to use. The seats are uber there s room in the back for 3 or two adults, three at a push.

the boot loses 100 litres in to the battery, over the standard there is still plenty of for luggage, including a spilt compartment under the floor.

The list of goodies is very in the top of the range Hybrid4. Suffice to the interior feels classy put together. There s several storage areas the cabin light, spacious with the retractable roof, airy.

 It s difficult to find anything this car to dislike, which me onto cost.

All SME s are looking to money the 3008H is designed to reduce the amount you pay to the Treasury. On the specced version this to CO2 emissions of 99g/km, meaning no VED in one for this model no car tax. It offers a claimed combined consumption of 70.5 mpg.

it costs from £26,995, the cheapest 3008 petrol is 10K cheaper the cheapest 1.6 diesel is  8K offers 54 mpg in the combined cycle emissions of 135g/km. So it s not a straightforward or choice to go for the hybrid over the 3008, although I would drive the Hybrid4 every mainly because it s so relaxing, on long journeys.

What s the verdict. Peugeot produced a very good car with the Hybrid4, one that s but fun to drive furthermore, eats up the miles leaving the driver at their destination. It is in essence, the family car.

Only the of leasing this car may put you off. As I this  review in early a Hybrid4 is available from from £359 a month,  the 1.6 HDi can be leased from a month a £100 is a £100.In only you can decide, by looking at like for like based on annual mileage. Me, I really it think that Peugeot has a very good car indeed.
