The Mk2 3008 was introduced in 2016 and after the plain MPV/SUV design of the original, the sleeker looks of the second iteration were a huge improvement.
The 1.5 BlueHDi 130 diesel engine was updated in 2018 – the old 1.6 BlueHDi is still offered in the range but the new 1.5 BlueHDi 130 is our pick as it’ll do an impressive 67.3mpg on a combined cycle. This may not be as good as the Nissan Qashqai 1.5 dCi’s 74.3mpg but the 1.5 BlueHDi 130 has more power at 128bhp.
There are more potent diesels on offer but there’s no 4×4 option so like most crossovers, the 3008 is best suited to the road.
