The ea­gerly awaited all-new 3008 SUV is an im­por­tant devel­op­ment in the SUV C seg­ment mar­ket and ar­rives at a time when cus­tomers are more than ever ex­pect­ing dif­fer­en­ti­a­tion and new ex­pe­ri­ences. Equipped with its rev­o­lu­tion­ary, lat­est gen­er­a­tion Peu­geot i- Cock­pit®, el­e­gant styling, and high-tech equip­ment, the 3008 SUV aims to es­tab­lish it­self im­me­di­ately as a key player and this Carbuyer award clearly recog­nises the com­pet­i­tive fea­tures over its com­peti­tors. is the on­line site for trusted re­views, owner opin­ions and ex­pert ad­vice on all mo­tor­ing mat­ters. It has re­cently launched a ref­er­ence print mag­a­zine high­light­ing the best cars cur­rently on sale.

Stu­art Milne, Edi­tor at Carbuyer, com­mented: “For­get ev­ery­thing you thought you knew about the pre­vi­ous 3008, be­cause Peu­geot has rung the changes. First off, the 3008 is now a fully-fledged SUV rather than the cross­over of old. It’s hand­some from the out­side, but in­side is where the game has re­ally moved on. The dash­board is beau­ti­fully de­signed and fea­tures ex­ten­sive use of fab­ric on the dash­board and door pan­els to lend a chic feel­ing. The clever i- Cock­pit® dash­board is a 12.3-inch screen that dis­plays your speed, nav­i­ga­tion, phone and au­dio in­for­ma­tion and is fit­ted as stan­dard to ev­ery 3008 SUV in the range.

“The 3008 SUV is ahead of the pack when it comes to more prag­matic mat­ters, too. It has a big boot and plenty of in­te­rior space. There’s a wide range of ef­fi­cient petrol and diesel en­gines, and the avail­abil­ity of Peu­geot’s ‘Grip Con­trol’ sys­tem means the front-wheel-drive car can of­fer the grip of a four-wheel drive when needed. In an SUV mar­ket dom­i­nated by some ex­cep­tion­ally able cars, it takes some­thing spe­cial to be the best. And that’s why we’ve named the Peu­geot 3008 SUV Carbuyer’s ‘Car of the Year for 2017’.

David Peel, Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor at Peu­geot UK, com­mented: “This is fan­tas­tic news. The all-new Peu­geot 3008 SUV has so many ap­peal­ing fea­tures and for it to re­ceive this Carbuyer ‘Car of the Year 2017’ ac­co­lade, ahead of its ar­rival in the UK is per­fect. It sets the tone that we have a win­ner on our hands and I have no doubt our cus­tomers are go­ing to love driv­ing it too.”
