Car reviews - Peugeot - 3008 - GT
Top-of-the-line diesel might be the Peugeot 3008 pick, but it comes at a price
5 Jan 2018
THE original Peugeot 3008 appeared like a creature from the deep. It was not only blobby and bulbous in appearance, but it created a murky line between SUV and MPV that few buyers snapped up. But to say this second-generation model marks a shift in philosophy is an understatement.
Although heavily based on the 308 hatchback, the second-gen 3008 is a proper mid-size SUV. From engine to equipment to exterior specification, this $35,000-to-$50,000 Peugeot emerges from the abyss to tackle the likes of the Mazda CX-5 head on.
While a trio of turbocharged petrol-engined model grades are available, selecting a turbo-diesel requires heading straight to the flagship 3008 GT, with the most power, the greatest torque, the fastest performance, the lowest fuel consumption and the highest level of standard kit in the range.
On-paper at least, it should showcase this latest French SUV at its best.
