The Peugeot 3008 range competes against cars like the Nissan Qashqai, Mitsubishi ASX and Ford Kuga (but also dipping into mini-MPV territory), andis knownfor its interior space and practicality. We’ve compiled a guide to its most important dimensions inside and out to help you decide if this crossover’s credentials are good enough to earn it a spot in your garage.
As well as petrol and diesel models in the 3008 range, there’s also an all-wheel-drive, diesel-powered hybrid variant called HYbrid4. Catchy. The hybrid’s exterior is largely unchanged from that of the regular models, so assume all dimensions listed below also apply to that model, unless otherwise stated. All images shown below detail the pre-facelift model, but dimensions quoted are for the post-facelift version (shown above).
As a crossover, the Peugeot 3008 is just a little larger than regular hatchbacks on the outside; it needs to have a roomy cabin, after all. Having said that, it isn’t huge a Renault Scenic is a little longer at 4,372mm and the Skoda Yeti, at 4,222mm, is shorter.
Width is a similar story.At 1,837mm (excluding rear view mirrors), it’s only around 10cm wider than mostsuperminis, and that’s certainly a good thing, especially if your daily commute involves dodging traffic or width restrictors.A Renault Scenic is wider at 1,845mm, and the Yeti narrower, at just 1,793mm wide. The cabin is relatively tall too, meaning headroom isn’t a big problem.
Overall length 4,365 mm
Wheelbase 2,613 mm
Overall width (excluding rear view mirrors) 1,837 mm
Overall width (including rear view mirrors) 2,113 mm
Overall height 1,639 mm (HYbrid4 1,610 mm)
The Peugeot 3008’s reason for being is its practicality. It can seat five as you’d hope and still hasa good amount of space for luggage. It offers maximum front headroom of 918mm andrear headroom of 876mm. Critics’ reviews suggest rear legroom is a little stingy though if you’ve got tall teens in the family they may be even less impressed than usual when you kindly agree to ferry them around.

Rear headroom 876 mm
With the seats up, the Peugeot 3008 offers 512 litres of boot space, which increasesto a massive 1,604 litres by folding the second row of seats. The seats also split,which opens up space for longer itemsin the boot without asking the rear passenger to take the bus home from IKEA.
In comparison to the Yeti and Scenic,the Peugeot’s boot is quite a healthy size Renault’s Scenic tops out at 470 litres and the Skoda Yeti offers416 litres (both with the seats fully up, of course). With the seats folded, the Renault can take in up to 1,870 litres of luggage while the Skoda can only manage about1,580 litres.
The Peugeot 3008 HYbrid4 has a smaller boot space just 354 litreswith the rear seats upand 1,435 litreswith the seats folded.Blame the rear-mounted electric motor and batteries.

Turning circle and fuel tank capacity
A turning circle diameter of 10.9m is close to modern hatchback standards. It increases slightly to 11.7m on the 2.0 e-HDi diesel engined versions, but neither should make parking or three-point turns too hellish.
With a 60-litre fuel tank, and aclaimed combined fuel consumption of about 65mpg (on the 1.6 e-HDi), it gets quite a decent range as well.

The 3008 is no sports car, but with a kerb weight(with full tank of fuel) of 1,399kg for the base-spec petrol, and 1,539 kilos for the top-spec diesel, things don’t look too bad. The HYbrid4 is a bit more of a porker – it weighs 1,660kg.
