Peugeot 3008 Hybrid boot space, seating & practicality

Some fuel-tank capacity and boot space have had to be sacrificed to accommodate the 3008 plug-in’s batteries

While the regular 3008 offers slightly more boot space, in all other respects the hybrid models’ interior space is unchanged. Visibility is pretty good looking ahead, thanks in part to the raised SUV ride height, but you may be less impressed by how easy it is to see out the back, due to the window design. Fortunately, front and rear parking sensors and a rear-view parking camera are standard across the range.

Peugeot 3008 hybrid interior space, storage & comfort

Like its non-hybrid siblings, the plug-in 3008 presents you with a spacious, five-door family SUV layout. Seven seats isn’t an option – you need to upgrade to the larger 5008, which can’t be bought as a hybrid, for that. But if it’s two adults and two kids (or even four adults) you’re looking to carry, the 3008 should definitely suffice. There isn’t quite as much versatile storage in the cabin as in some rivals, but the Peugeot still features plenty of cubbies to store things like phones and wallets, along with a large central bin that doubles as an armrest.

Boot space

Peugeot has had to compromise on practicality somewhat in order to fit the hybrid 3008’s batteries: the fuel tank is 10 litres smaller than a regular 3008's and boot space with the rear seats in place comes down from 520 to 395 litres. You do at least get a dedicated 25-litre area for storing charging cables, while seats-down boot capacity is a generous 1,357 litres – versus 1,482 for the petrol and diesel models.
