Peugeot 3008 Hybrid4: drive review

First the electric car, then the petrol hybrid. After came the range-extender electric and now Peugeot has given us the latest car flavour — the world’s diesel hybrid.

Anyway, rival to the Vauxhall Ampera and Volt is 3008-shaped and costs On sale now, I headed to for a first drive.

So how does it Well, at the front there is the 161bhp, 2.0-litre HDi turbo mated to a six-speed semi-automatic However, this package really interesting at the back, there’s a 36bhp AC electric for the rear wheels.

On top of 200bhp, combined fuel figures of 70.6mpg and 104g/km (a 99g/km version will be later), this 3008 the extra traction of four-wheel without all the extra parts of a system.

However what is clever about this is that it is easily interchangeable other models and we will be an RXH version of the 508. which is an upmarket all-wheel drive using the same technology, this year.

Outside, the looks like any other look closer and there are now a set of inside the front headlights, the latest lion badge on the Whilst at the back, there is a rear spoiler with a black centre section.

Inside, the interior is as unchanged as the Okay, there is two-tone for Limited Edition versions, the rev has now been replaced by a battery indicator, the sat-nav screen now what power source is the car and what was the circular dial to between two and four-wheel drive now the four drive modes.

only one compromise over the 3008’s practicality and that is 100 less rear load However, there’s still the practical split tailgate and rear seats.

So, what’s the Hybrid4 like to Well, the 3008 starts in ZEV which basically means it can run on power for as long as possible or you go over 30mph. Then, 30mph the car will shift Auto mode which the use of diesel and electric power for

There is also the four-wheel mode (4×4), which power to all four wheels more grip. Finally, a mode sharpens up the acceleration and the driver full access to the available.

Personally, I found it fiddly to start the Hybrid4. It to take ages between the key and the electric motor starting to away. If you don’t wait, Peugeot will leave you a box of neutrals.

In ZEV electric mode, the Hybrid4 is smooth and remains this way it changes to Auto mode.

The might have more and performance, (118mph top speed and acceleration in 9.1 seconds) but it isn’t sporty. So Sport is probably the title for this 3008’s dynamic mode.

One of the highlights of the is the keen drive, but even in mode the Hybrid4 doesn’t as sharp as the standard car. The and handling are the most noticeable and I’m sure that the is the extra 441lb of battery and motor. The plastic gear paddles in particular, look and horrible and seem at odds the Hybrid4’s green character.

Peugeot prepared an off-road to try the Hybrid4’s four-wheel drive Don’t think of it as a serious the 3008 doesn’t have ground clearance or a lockable to do that. However, if you look at it as extra traction over or wet surfaces, it works well.

the 3008 Hybrid4 is an impressive to the green car sector and a serious to the Vauxhall and Chevrolet. It is expensive, but is a car that’s going to appeal to rather family buyers believes 85% of sales will be to car buyers). Personally, I feel is a car that you need to spend with to get the best out of it and hope to a longer loan period
