Peugeot 3008 review - Reliability and Safety

There's lots of safety kit, and a five-star Euro NCAP rating, but it's tough to judge reliability of the latest 3008

The Peugeot 3008 achieved an outstanding second-place finish in our 2020 Driver Power customer satisfaction survey, while Peugeot as a brand came 8th out of 30 manufacturers - beating the likes of BMW and Volvo.

Build quality, cabin styling, boot space and smooth ride quality all impressed Peugeot owners; the 3008 delivers on all these points and justifies its place as one of our favourite SUVs.

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 per cent, 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 per cent. 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.

Euro NCAP said that the front of the car had “predominantly good or adequate protection to the head of a struck pedestrian”, scoring 67 per cent in this category. Maximum points were scored for the pedestrian’s pelvis and legs, too.

Finally, the safety assist category brought a 58 per cent score, with the researchers pointing out the car’s standard seatbelt reminder, traffic sign recognition and lane departure warning.

Warranty

The Peugeot 3008 gets a two-year unlimited mileage warranty from the factory, plus an extra year from the dealer, ading 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.
