Real-world fuel economy and emissions
- 1.2-litre PureTech petrol best for most drivers
- 2.0-litre BlueHDi diesel disappointing
- Smaller engines are genuinely impressive
Claimed fuel economy varies from around 39mpg, to just over 70mpg for pre-WLTP standards – reasonably strong figures for the class of car, meaning low fuel bills. Peugeot is an early adopter of WLTP and RDE2 emissions standards, and the 3008's figures are good for the size and performance of car regardless of petrol, diesel, manual or automatic configuration.
All models of 3008 except the GT can be specified with 1.2-litre petrol three cylinder or 1.5-litre diesel four cylinder engines, all turbocharged.
- PureTech 130 manual: Petrol, 44.2mpg, 119g/km
- PureTech 130 EAT8 auto: Petrol, 43.2mpg, 118g/km
- BlueHDI 130 manual: Diesel, 55.1mpg, 111g/km
- BlueHDI 130 EAT8 auto: Diesel, 56.3mpg, 107g/km
Higher specification models have additional 1.6-litre petrol and 2.0-litre diesel engine options.
- PureTech 180 EAT8 auto: Petrol, 39.6mpg, 131g/km
- BlueHDI 180 EAT8 auto: Diesel, 47.1mpg, 129g/km
The GT is only available with the BlueHDI 180 diesel. Discontinued engines include the 1.6-litre BlueHDI 100 and 120, and the 1.6-litre turbo petrol e-THP.
Other costs - servicing and depreciation
Like smaller Peugeots, the 3008 is offered with the company’s Just Add Fuel finance scheme, which bundles in insurance, servicing, maintenance and road tax into one monthly cost. Servicing and maintenance costs should prove reasonably affordable while insurance costs shouldn’t prove too pricey, too.
Peugeots do not historically have a good record for holding their value as used cars, though the 3008’s bold styling and popular SUV format should mean it depreciates less than other models from the brand, offsetting its higher price when compared with some of its rivals.
How reliable is the Peugeot 3008?
- Peugeot has a patchy reliability record
- New tech may need watching
- Overall the 3008 feels a solid car
Peugeot has a chequered past when it comes to reliability, with a reputation for patchy quality. New tech like the digital speedometer may have some teething troubles, but Peugeot should iron out these problems early on.
Considering the step change in interior design and quality over previous models it is possible that Peugeot has upped its game here, but the company’s reputation implies that the 3008 may have a few reliability niggles.
