Peugeot 3008 1.2 PureTech Active Review
Where Less Could be More

And even as a compact SUV, it is not small

I approached this car with some apprehension. After all, we have already tested the torque and features-filled 1.6 diesel and the more nimble petrol 1.6 turbo, the latter which we felt was just right in delivery of power, and wondered how would the 1.2 turbo with just three cylinders fare in checking all the important boxes, where at the top of the list of boxes is “Got power or not?”

And even as a compact SUV, it is not small. At 4,447mm in length, and 1,841mm wide, the 3008 does command road presence. Sporting a larger-than-life chromed grille, and sculpted headlamps, which echoes Peugeots new design language, the 3008 does cut an imposing presence in the rear view mirrors to most cars it tails.

From the side, the car feels propped up with high shoulders, while plastic guards on the lower portions of the doors, as well as guards along the wheel-arches adds to the impression of a more rugged vehicle. At the rear, there are notches cut into the tail lamp design, where the lamps continue with the high-waisted design.

While we would not deny that it is built to be a road-going car, and not something for real off-roading, the high ride height does allow you to take the 3008 a little off the beaten path, without the worry of wrecking the undercarriage.
