Interior, dashboard & comfort rating

4.0 out of 5

The standard 3008 has since launch boasted one of best looking interiors in the family SUV class, and that’s no less true of the hybrid variant. The ‘i-Cockpit’ digital dashboard is impressive, but the small and low-set steering wheel – which you’re expected to look over rather than through – may not be to all tastes.

As mentioned above, the 3008 has an unusual cockpit layout, with an attractive, sculpted dashboard shape incorporating a large touchscreen and Peugeot’s ‘i-Cockpit’ digital dials. You’ll notice the smaller-than-usual steering wheel; the idea is you look over this at the dials, rather than through the spokes as you do in most other cars. Depending on exactly how tall or short you are, and what your preferred driving position is, you may find that this works perfectly or is enormously frustrating – so make sure to try before you buy.

Equipment, options & accessories

The Peugeot 3008 is currently offered in three different trim levels and you can have hybrid power with all of them. You can only get the entry-level Active Premium+ model with the Hybrid 225 drivetrain, but Allure Premium+ and GT specifications are offered with the Hybrid4 300 powertrain as well.

Standard kit on the base model encompasses cruise control, lane-departure warning, lane-keeping assist, blind-spot monitoring, automatic emergency braking, a 10-inch central touchscreen, 3D navigation system, digital radio, Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, 18-inch alloy wheels, LED headlights and half-leather trim

Stepping up to Allure Premium+ gets you keyless entry and start, ambient interior lighting, folding front passenger seat, black contrasting roof and high-beam assist. Top-of-the-range GT model gets all that, plus a ‘Driver Assist Pack’ with adaptive cruise control, front collision warnings and lane-positioning assistance, as well as Alcantara fabric trim on the dashboard and door panels, a full-grain perforated leather steering wheel, USB charging sockets for rear-seat passengers, gloss-black alloy wheels and chrome exterior embellishments.

Infotainment, apps & sat nav

All 3008 hybrids come with 12.3-inch digital instruments and a 10-inch central touchscreen incorporating 3D navigation and voice control, as well as Android Auto and Apple CarPlay smartphone screen mirroring. If you can deal with the low-set small steering wheel setup mentioned above, it all works very well, although having the climate control operated from the touchscreen can be an irritation when on the move.
