VER­DICT

Mercury (Hobart) - Motoring - - MOTORING -

The 3008 is a class act to drive but its high price and ser­vic­ing costs weigh against it. The Tiguan, still a favourite in the of­fice, de­serves recog­ni­tion for stan­dard AEB but its price pre­mium is hard to jus­tify in this com­pany. The CR-V may lack the driv­ing fi­nesse and in­te­rior pol­ish of the Euro­pean pair but it ex­cels in ways that will mat­ter to most buy­ers.It’s the best equipped in this line-up — with the ex­cep­tion of AEB — and has the long­est war­ranty and cheap­est ser­vic­ing. It runs on reg­u­lar un­leaded, has a roomier cabin and cargo area and a full-size spare, while prac­ti­cal ex­tras in­clude a sen­sor key and power tail­gate. The fact it’s $4500 cheaper than the VW and $2800 less than the Peu­geot sim­ply seals the deal.
