The compact SUV (And only compact, regardless of small or oversized) and today represent the second market segment Top sellers in our country. In November They enrolled nearly 21,000 units, beating utilities (19,558) and approaching and much more historically traditional compact cars sold (21,625 units). We do not know how far a phenomenon that seems unstoppable arrive today, but there is no doubt that every day become part of the option of buying more and more customers. We just have to see the interest that today raises any items related to the latest Ateca Seat, Kia Sportage, Hyundai Tucson, Nissan Qashqai ... and, as well, the brand new Peugeot 3008.

Peugeot 3008Today we focus on the Finally compact SUV in landing, the new Peugeot 3008, to ask if it offers better SUV attributes like ... well clear of an aesthetic that certainly seems to hook the buyer today. To check this, nothing better than measure their skills against two models also Peugeot, one Compact and other relative, with which floorpan (the new one PSA group EMP2) Y powertrains. Here we analyze all the star engine: the Diesel 120 hp 1.6 BlueHDI. And all with 6-speed manual transmission.

Before entering assess the different measurements taken by our Technical Center, We will position each. While all three use the same base, its dimensions are quite different. while the New Peugeot 3008 measures 4.45 meters long and 1.62 meters high, Peugeot 308 remains at 4.25 meters and 1.46 meters respectively. Meanwhile, the variant Peugeot 308 SW family stretches its length up to 4.59 meters and maintains its height at 1.47 meters. Being the last to arrive, regardless of the data we will see, yes we appreciate also further refinement as a product in the Peugeot 3008. Features more production quality and evolved and modern interior design. The driving position, for example, so controversial in the 308, is slightly corrected in 3008 seems better adapted to all types of drivers. Now, what do the data say?

3008 vs 308 vs Peugeot 308 SW: performance

No doubt about it: Peugeot 3008 has surprised us. Compared to its rivals SUV arrives today very well positioned in the chapter on performance, skills that can be confirmed also compared to 308 and 308 SW. The greater volume of body SUV It translates into nothing less than 187 kg more weight than the 308 Y 130 kg more than the 308 SW. With this constraint, it should be clearly penalized paragraph of benefits. However it does not suffer too much. Acceleration measurements is, in the worst case, just half a second slower ... figure that in this type of vehicle does not seem significant. And because of their exchange developments, It is almost as fast as their brethren in range overtaking. In addition, the new Peugeot 3008 has pleasantly surprised us with its greater isolation tread (easily seen in records sound) and a Capacity braking has even surpassed 308 and 308 SW. Perhaps his biggest tires (Michelin Primacy 3 in some measure 225/55 R18, compared with Michelin Pilot Sport 3 that equipped the 308 and 308 SW measure 225/45 R17) Can contribute something ... but we do not think much. Given all values, the Peugeot 3008 can be more interesting in terms of comfort / rolling / performance is concerned. Obviously, if you value only agility, the 3008 penalizes here mostly volume slightly, although its response is more than convincing.
