Image like, good production quality, much space as a family car … and make no mistake, SUV format means. The key undoubtedly the success we’re having the new Peugeot 3008 since it was launched a few months ago the market go through its general balance and to respond clearly to the type of car that prevails in our country today. In December, already he surpassed the 3008 sales heavyweights segment as Kia Sportage (Which also had dueling few days ago) and came very close to others like Volkswagen Tiguan or Ateca Seat. Still further, with double registrations, are the Hyundai Tucson Y Nissan Qashqai. But Peugeot hopes to catch up soon.

In anticipation because it is generating New Peugeot 3008, Today we wanted to get you out of doubt if I planteas as purchase. Better in diesel or gasoline? To do this, we give access to its Diesel, the 100 hp 1.6 BlueHDi considering it as somewhat limited in power to focus on their gasoline Input, 1.2 PureTech 3-cylinder 130 hp surprising, and its equivalent in DieselIn this case the same 1.6 BlueHDi but now with 120 hp. Whereas since, dynamically, either variants we tested approved with excellent note thanks to a remarkable agility on the road and a very good comfort gear (you will not find among his rivals much better balance in behavior), it is time to analyze performance, consumption and, finally, to calculate prices which is better and which compensates more economically. To them go!

Peugeot 3008 1.6 BlueHDi / 120 vs 1.2 PureTech / 130: features

Both partners in this occasion 6-speed manual gearbox, (1,800 euros plus these two versions can also be equipped with an automatic 6-speed transmission and torque converter, very nice by the way), there is no doubt that the performance duel takes him 1.2 PureTech of gas. The truth is that it is surprising performance has shown us this small cylinders 3 on a compact SUV approaching the 1,500 kg.

Peugeot 300842 kg less than the Peugeot 3008 BlueHDi 1.6, 1.2 petrol PureTech maybe start there to win the game. And continued for about developments change, being up to 20 percent shorter than those of diesel, give the SUV more agile. Obviously, the BlueHDi has higher peak torque figures, but this three cylinders PureTech moves very well Even before 2,000 rpm, while from the 3,500 best stretch since the Diesel. Conclusion, greater elasticity which translates into not only an acceleration up to 1 second faster, but also better recoveries than diesel. What is not very common. Slow, slow almost the same, they sound too similar (or diesel itself, or 3 cylinders gasoline tip the balance), and the faster the data show, comes into play softness and stretched the PureTech of gas. First point in their favor.

We continue with our actual consumption, certainly the most controversial section when it comes to comparing a diesel and gasoline. And here, as they always happen … unmitigated victory for Diesel. In this case, the Peugeot 3008 1.6 BlueHDi, and especially sustained rolling rhythms, takes great advantage of its longer change developments and their best under regime, to circulate more vented and clearly prevail in our measurements.

Almost 1.7 l / 100 km less in city and 1.4 l / 100 km less on the road, is a wide difference. On average, 1.6 BlueHDi you spend up to 1.5 liters less per 100 km, clearly compensándote if you only attend to their daily consumption figures. Yes, and you must be clear that, at higher speeds and need to push even more difference will be: 3-cylinder turbo PureTech ends up paying their smaller displacement and torque need to upload more than regime. Therefore, after the clear victory of Diesel consumption, time tie between the two 3008.

Peugeot 3008 1.6 BlueHDi / 120 vs 1.2 PureTech / 130: space

We arrived at chapter space aboard where obviously no match. This time, only measurements and analysis, since obviously both Peugeot 3008 1.6 1.2 PureTech BlueHDi as gasoline have the same exact same roominess and luggage capacity. Does the Peugeot 3008 because the space needs of an average family? Definitely. The French model It is in the category average both legroom and height, emphasizing especially for its large width rear where it is the best. And in boot, it does not have the 540 liters we have measured for example in a Kia Sportage or Ateca Seat 535, but well exceeds the 455-liter Nissan Qashqai. Without being the broader category, there is no doubt that 3008 thus fulfills in space rather than correctly.

Peugeot 3008 1.6 BlueHDi / 120 vs 1.2 PureTech / 130: the final price

then comes the moment of truth. Seen the seen,Peugeot 3008 compensates? Analyze the price is usually the deciding factor in the purchase. Here, the comparison is easy. Available in both 1.6 BlueHDi as the 1.2 PureTech identical with the same equipment and the same trim levels (Active, Allure and GT Line for both), the price difference is exactly 1,500 euros in favor of gasoline always PureTech. Up there, and analyzed their measurements, may serve distinct advantage.

However, doubt is enlarged when We compute depreciation. Given their actual consumption, the price of fuel and versions (we reference the last we’ve found 1.279 for petrol and 1,169 for Diesel), with less than 59,000 km and you would have amortized the cost overrun of 1.6 BlueHDi compared to 1.2 PureTech. A figure that until today we would have inclined to choose the Diesel (in just 3 or 4 years would have amortized the biggest investment) … but today we discard. And we do it for the good overall performance of PureTech (We like) and, above all, a few years the panorama views of Diesel: movement restrictions, parking and higher taxes on pollution. So for us, Peugeot 3008 1.2 PureTech 130 hp is now the master purchase.
