Peugeot 3008 review - Reliability and safety
The Peugeot 3008 offers lots of safety kit and a five-star Euro NCAP rating, while customers praise its reliability
Peugeot is usually well represented in our Driver Power surveys, although customers were less positive about the brand and its models in the 2021 poll, compared to previous years. The 3008 finished in 50th place on a 75-car list, while Peugeot itself achieved 11th spot - down from 8th position in 2020.
The 3008's build quality, cabin styling, boot space and its smooth ride have generally been praised by owners in past surveys, so it will be interesting to see how the SUV fares next time around.
Where the car has proved itself, however, it with its safety rating. The 3008 features a host of safety equipment and driver aids, including automatic emergency braking, as standard. Extra kit includes blind spot detection, lane keep assist, driver attention alert and adaptive cruise control. And, the end result was that Euro NCAP awarded the car five stars after crash-testing it in 2016.
In the adult occupant section, the car scored 86%, with researchers complimenting the car on its protection for different-sized front-seat passengers, as well as getting maximum points in the side impact test. For child occupants, the 3008 scored 85%. Euro NCAP noted that head protection for children was good, and there’s clear indication about the status of the airbag to allow baby seats to be fitted.
The Peugeot 3008 gets a two-year unlimited mileage warranty from the factory, plus an extra year from the dealer, adding up to a total of three years. That matches the industry standard, which is mainly only beaten by Kia’s seven-year and Toyota and Hyundai’s five-year warranties.
Peugeot offers fixed-price servicing packages to help spread the cost of scheduled maintenance.
