1. A presentation that is always up to date
Since 2016 and the introduction of the second-generation Peugeot 3008, years have followed and resembled each other. First on the numbers side, where the Peugeot SUV crushes all competition from family / compact SUVs, but also among opponents. Increasingly, however, French competitors have difficulty aging in terms of appearance and presentation. With its ultra-aggressive features and interior presentation, which is still just as spectacular after 6 years, the Peugeot 3008 is still at stake.. It is true that the surprise effect has long since disappeared and tens of thousands of copies sold in France, but a second-hand selection remains a sure to get into a car that is not old-fashioned, which is not easy. market. A sensation for which we owe the arrangement of the “i-Cockpit” of a small steering wheel under the counters. This architecture remains annoying for some drivers. Moreover, if the multimedia screen evolved at the time of the restyling and, thanks to the enlarged diagonal, offers a little more response and readability, the old element provides the essentials that the French have never talked about. In terms of materials, they have aged quite well..
2. Peugeot 3008: consistently compare road services
Another area in which the Peugeot 3008 always looks at competition with contempt: road services. Since our first contact with him in 2017, we have said that Peugeot has dealt a blow and set a new benchmark in the category.. We were right, because 6 years after its birth, Lion remains above trouble when it comes to driving pleasure. If the SUV genre rarely gives the driver a banana, the 3008 succeeds thanks to precise steering, a trailing front axle and controlled body tilt to that size. All without compromising on comfort. You will certainly find more softness in the Citroën C5 Aircross, but the compromise between rigor and comfort found by the 3008 remains unrivaled. We still think it’s the best.

3. Huge second-hand selection: version, finish, engines, price
The Peugeot 3008, hegemonic among compact SUVs, makes some people feel rejected. But this commercial board has the advantage of occasionally offering a plethora of choices. About 6,000 models are available on the La Centrale website alone. Excess representation advantageous for buyers who first have a choice between many colors and finishes (Active, Allure, Allure Pack, GT, GT Pack …). While choosing a used car often rhymes with “concession”, the large number of 3008 on the market allows you to find a shoe that suits you. Then this offer inevitably reduces the average price, which is a significant criterion at a time when used cars tend to become more expensive due to the lack of new cars.. Count on € 15,000 at the starting price. There are a few models below this bar, but the mileage is often close to 200,000, which is not reassuring. With around € 20,000, you’ll find what you’re looking for, whether it’s petrol (most often PureTech 130), diesel (1.6 120 hp, 1.5 130 hp or 2.0 150 hp), manual transmission or automatic , all between 50,000 and 130,000 km.
4. Highly monitored reliability
Another advantage of this influx of used 3008 is that reliability problems are all the more quickly detected and resolved. Especially since French is not necessarily exemplary in this area. Like other Peugeotes equipped with the PureTech 130, it has fallen victim to serious distribution problems, from wear and tear to breakage.. There is nothing to run from, because at the beginning of 2021, the manufacturer carried out a massive summons with an inspection of the oil circuit and belt. Just make sure it was done correctly. Defects did not escape diesel either, problems with the turbo at 1.6 with a power of 120 hp and problems with the high-pressure pump at 2.0 (150 or 180 hp). came out later plug-in hybrids with 225 and 300 hp have also undergone some fixes. Note that in the diesel, the 100 horses are not sold for a long time and still do not appear to be muscular enough. All gasoline benefits from the Crit’Air 1 label, while “fuel oil” must be satisfied with the Crit’Air 2.

Which engine should you choose for a used Peugeot 3008?
