Peugeot 3008 Road Test (2009)

There are plenty of crossovers on the market but the Peugeot 3008 is quite different in many respects.

25 September 2009 MAC

There are three trim levels available for the Peugeot 3008: Active, Sport and Exclusive. The Active specification includes 17-inch steel wheels clad with energy saver tyres, front fog lights, the Automatic Parking Brake with Hill Assist, powered front windows and ESP and Electronic Brake Force Distribution (EBFD).

Moving up to the Sport adds alloy wheels, a rear parking aid, cruise control and speed limiter, height adjustment for the passenger seat, leather-covered steering wheel, a Lighting and Look Packs and, depending on the engine, Dynamic Roll Control.

The top of the range, the Peugeot 3008 Exclusive, which is the one we tested, comes with the Cielo panoramic glass roof, the head-up display and distance alert, sun blinds for the rear windows, tyre pressure monitor, Bi-zone air-conditioning, automatic headlights and wipers and the Exterior and Family Packs, meaning aluminium finishing and extra storage options.

Along with the trim choices there are two petrol engines and three diesels, specifically a 1.6VTi 120 and 1.6THP 150. The former is mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox and the latter has an extra gear. The diesel menu comprises a 1.6-litre, HDi 110 FAP unit, which is available in conjunction with the 6-speed manual ‘box or 6-speed, Electronically Controlled manual.

Next in line are the 2.0-litre HDi 150 FAP and the 2.0-litre HDi 163 with an automatic gearbox.

The Peugeot 3008 test car was powered by the HDi 150 FAP engine, which produces 150bhp (152PS) at 3,750rpm and 340Nm of torque at 2,000rpm. It completes the 0-62mph dash in 9.7 seconds and has a top speed of 121mph. Both the delivery and ride are smooth and there is hardly any roll on fast bends thanks to the efficient suspension system.

Furthermore, for a fairly large vehicle it is quite frugal with fuel economy figures of 39.7mpg (urban), 60.0mpg (extra urban) and 50.4mpg for the combined, while CO2 emissions are tested as 146g/km.

We are told that the Peugeot 3008 will remain 2-wheel drive until 2011, when the Hybrid4 version arrives, complete with all-wheel drive. In the meantime, Peugeot has come up with Grip Control. It is available as an option on all but the automatic and adds ВЈ450 to the price in combination with the Mud and Snow tyres needed for optimal traction.

Grip Control has five settings selected via a dial on the tunnel console; standard, snow, all-terrain and sand.

This Bosch-developed system, in conjunction with the ESP, still works on the front wheels only but is very effective. So much so that in a recent demonstration a Peugeot 3008 with the 1.6 THP engine under the bonnet, set in all-terrain mode, had the grip on wet grass, to launch a full-sized glider, via a pulley system. It was impressive to say the least.

There are plenty of crossovers on the market but the Peugeot 3008 is quite different in many respects. The interior is especially so with its broad tunnel console, which is somehow, comforting. The ride is good and the handling equally so.

It is very comfortable on long journeys and where the sunroof is fitted, it almost feels like open-top motoring. There are quite a few options available but even without them, the Peugeot 3008 feels and looks good.
