Peugeot 3008 review - MPG, CO2 and running costs

Peugeot offers frugal petrol, diesel and hybrid engines for the 3008.

The 128bhp 1.5 BlueHDi diesel with the eight-speed auto 'box manages up to 56.3mpg with 135g/km of CO2 emissions, with the manual version just slightly less efficient.

Petrol options start with the 1.2-litre 130 PureTech; a three-cylinder unit which returns up to 47.2mpg and emits 146g/km of CO2 with a manual gearbox. 

The four-cylinder 1.6-litre PureTech 180 is a punchier unit that’ll cost a little bit more to run as a result: CO2 emissions start from 165g/km, with fuel economy of up to 39.6mpg.

If you make sure you regularly charge the batteries, then Peugeot claims it is possible to see over 200mpg for the Hybrid models on the combined cycle, while both also offer an all-electric range of up to 40 miles.

Insurance Groups

Insuring the Peugeot 3008 will cost about the same as the rival Nissan Qashqai, with the cheapest model being the PureTech 130 in entry-level Active trim, which is in group 11. That changes depending on the trim you go for, but in general the 1.2 will be the cheapest to insure.

The 1.6 petrol is in group 13, while the lower-powered 1.6 diesel is in group 12. Our choice of engine, the 128bhp 1.5 diesel, is in group 16, or 18 in GT Line trim. The 2.0-litre diesel engines sit between groups 21 and 24, depending on which spec you go for.

Depreciation

Expert data suggests that the Peugeot 3008 will retain around 43% of its value over 3 years and 36,000 miles, which isn't as solid as rivals such as the Skoda Karoq and SEAT Ateca.
