Car reviews - Peugeot - 3008 - Active
Peugeot blends French flair with European execution in wonderful 3008 Active
24 Sep 2018
PEUGEOT made some waves when it revealed its second-generation 3008 mid-size SUV at the Paris motor show in September 2016. It was so well-received, in fact, that it was soon awarded 2017 European Car of the Year, among other accolades.
The 3008’s importance is heightened in Australia where it was at the forefront of the French brand’s relaunch under a new distributor Inchcape Australasia. Fast forward to 2018 and Peugeot has added a longer warranty and range-wide autonomous emergency braking to the model.
Positioned as a semi-premium offering, Peugeot is looking to command its own share of the most popular segment in Australia, mid-size SUVs. So, does it have what it takes to rattle the cage of the best-selling Mazda CX-5? We test it in entry-level Active form to find out.
