I am a bit of a Peugeot fan when it comes to family cars and I thought I loved the seven-seater Peugeot 5008 SUV, the most but then I recently tested the Peugeot 2008 SUV and OMG! It is love on a whole new level!! Let's find out then how I rate the middle-sized Peugeot 3008 on the BabyDrive love scale!…
The interior of the Peugeot 3008 is just as lovely as the 2008 and 5008, care has been taken to create an interior that is enjoyable to spend time in rather than just transport people from A to B. Just like its siblings, the steering wheel is smaller than most cars, it is thinner making it more comfortable to hold and it is positioned lower so it is a nice relaxed position for your arms while driving.
When it comes to fitting child seats in the Peugeot 3008, three child seats fit nicely in the back, there are ISOFix points n the two outer seats and top tether anchorages on the back of all three rear seats.
When it comes to legroom we found with a rear-facing child seat installed, we could sit a 180cm driver in front of it.
The boot floor of the Peugeot 3008 drops down about 10cm, giving it great practical boot storage too. A twin stroller or double pram fit in the boot, with varying amounts of shopping.
You can easily transport a medium-size dog in the boot of the Peugeot 3008.
Storage is good within the Peugeot 3008; with cup holders in the rear central seat fold down…
…a deep and generous size central console box…
…Phone charging tray…
…and good size front door bins too.
Driver comfort is important in the Peugeot 3008 GT tested here, with massage front seats you turn on and off with the button at the front of the seat and select your choice of massage (I know) through the media screen.
There is a large media screen in the Peugeot 3008 that you control using the silver paddles below it. It has Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, which makes it easy to connect to your phone while driving and access your apps etc.
You can control the air-conditioning and climate through the media screen too. I'd still prefer real buttons and dials for this but the latest Peugeot system isn't too bad.
There are air-con vents in the back of the central console for rear passengers, which is great for keeping little passengers cool in the back in summer.
The reversing camera image is really pixelated but the birds-eye view does help when parking and manoeuvring.
The Peugeot 3008 is a great, nippy and responsive car to drive, it has a really tight turning circle which makes it especially good in school and supermarket car parks too!
The Peugeot 3008 has a five-star ANCAP safety rating and has six airbags as standard.
