Parkers overall rating: 4 out of 5 4.0

While the majority of the switches and controls will be familiar to anyone who has sat in a modern Peugeot before, there are some neat touches that help the 3008 stand out. These include stylish instrument dials with a chrome surround and the high central tunnel which makes the cabin feel very driver focused.

Top models get a prominent row of toggle switches that add to the distinctive feel and these also control the head-up display – a unique feature usually found on top of the range premium cars. This projects information such as speed and cruise control onto a translucent panel on the dash top in front of the driver, so you don’t have to take your eyes off the road.

The driving position is very good with plenty of adjustment in the steering column, so the 3008 feels like an ordinary hatchback on the move. Overall build quality is impressive too and the cabin is finished well with a solid and durable feel.

Thanks to its high roof, Peugeot 3008 comfort levels score highly. The 3008 offers plenty of headroom for all passengers, but it is most impressive for those in the back. There’s plenty of leg room while a wide cabin means three adults can sit relatively comfortably, helped by a completely flat floor and good shoulder room.

Engine and wind noise are low, making the 3008 a very comfortable long distance car, while the seats are comfortable if not especially supportive.

A panoramic windscreen, which stretches above the driver’s head, comes as standard on all cars while top Exclusive models come with an impressive glass roof which makes the cabin feel incredibly light and spacious. It’s tinted to stop the car getting too hot and there is also an electrical sliding blind.

The electric parking brake is another useful feature and also frees up space on the central console.
