One of the best family cars you can buy, the Peugeot 3008 is a high-tech crossover car, that combines the comfort and efficiency of a conventional hatchback with the higher driving position of an off-roader.

Its high-tech, minimalist interior has two large screens, a quality feel and clever design that makes the most of its interior space.

You can read more about the car in the Peugeot 3008 buying guide or scroll down for all the data on the car’s dimensions, weights and load capacity.

As a crossover, the Peugeot 3008 uses the mechanical parts from a family hatchback, for good fuel efficiency and ride comfort. It covers these in the chunkier, taller bodywork of an off-road car to provide a higher driving position and more practicality.

Like other crossovers it’s bigger than a hatchback, but not so large that you’ll be terrified of taking it into town. At its widest point - between the two side mirrors - the 3008 is larger than average, but it’s unlikely to cause you too many problems while driving, as they’ll pass over most width restrictors. You’ll want to fold the mirrors in when parked on narrow streets, though.

The space between the front and rear wheels - known as the wheelbase - gives an indication of the amount of interior space that passengers have - with an average length for this type of car, there’s plenty of space in the back of the 3008 for two large adults.

Peugeot 3008 boot space

This new 3008 has a bigger boot than before, which is considerably larger than the 430-litres in the Nissan Qashqai.

Split-fold rear seats are standard, so you can fold down one of them, leaving the other upright for at least one passenger. The back seats fold completely flat, maximising the available space and making it easier to slide long loads into the car.

Peugeot 3008 towing capacity

A wide towing spectrum means you have to be very careful which 3008 you choose if you have haulage work in mind. At the upper end there’s plenty in reserve for a family caravan but the least capable models are more comfortable with a lighter trailer tent or two-berth caravan.

Peugeot 3008 weight

In their quest to reduce fuel consumption, car makers are launching lighter cars. The new 3008 is an example. Even the heaviest model’s kerbweight - which includes the weight of a driver, fuel and luggage, is less than the average crossover. The lighter models weigh about as much as some Peugeot 308 hatchbacks. It helps to make the 3008 almost as cheap to run as a smaller car.

Peugeot 3008 fuel tank

The 3008’s relatively small fuel tank (the average for the class is 57.4 litres) isn’t an issue given the model’s impressive fuel economy, with diesel versions doing over 70mpg, according to official figures. These models should manage 700 miles on a single tank.

Peugeot 3008 turning circle

A car’s turning circle is the area needed to turn itself in the opposite direction in one move - giving an idea of how easy it’ll be to manoeuvre. The 10.7m required by the 3008 is less than the average for its class, which should make parking a little easier than with rivals.
