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, which should offset its higher price when compared with some of its rivals.
Claimed fuel economy varies from around 47mpg to just over 70mpg – reasonably strong figures for the class of car, meaning low fuel bills.
The BlueHDi 100 returns a claimed 74.3mpg, while the 120hp version is capable of 70mpg according to Peugeot. Even the most powerful BlueHDi 180 returns a claimed 58.9mpg.
Real-world figures from the car manufacturer show that the 120hp diesel is capable of 47.1mpg in normal driving, while the 130hp petrol returns 38.2mpg. These figures are nowhere near the claimed fuel economy, however, they are likely to be similar to rivals.
Speaking of petrol power, the PureTech is capable of achieving 55.4mpg, while the higher-ouput 1.6-litre turbo returns 46.7mpg.
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.
Estimated fuel cost per year
|Fuel type||Pence per litre||Estimated cost per year *|
|Unleaded||128p||£1,078 - £1,212 *|
|Diesel||131p||£851 - £1,027 *|
* The estimated fuel cost figure is based on an annual mileage of 10,000 miles and is a guide to how much this model will cost in fuel each year. It's calculated using the model's average MPG (calculated from both town centre and motorway driving) and the average fuel price from around the country. Actual fuel costs will vary based on driving style and road conditions.

How much is it to insure?
Vehicle excise duty (VED) varies according to the CO2 emissions and the fuel type of the vehicle. For cars registered before 01 March 2001 it is based on engine size. For cars registered on or after 01 March 2001 the VED or road tax is based on the car's CO2 emissions.
Both 1.6-litre BlueHDi diesels emit less than 110g/km of CO2 emissions, making them the cleanest engines in the 3008 range.
Even the more powerful BlueHDi 150 emits 114g/km, while the punchy BlueHDi 180 is rated at 124g/km of CO2 emissions.
Even the petrols aren’t far behind the diesels, with the PureTech 130 emitting 117g/km and the e-THP 165 producing 129g/km, making it the highest-emitting in the range. Even so, 129g/km is impressive for a powerful and sizeable SUV like the 3008.
Highest and lowest CO2 emissions
|Engine||CO2 emissions||Road tax (12 months)|
|1.6 BlueHDi Diesel||103 g/km (Min)||£20 - £145|
|1.6 PureTech (180ps) Petrol||131 g/km (Max)||£145|
- 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.
