The Peugeot 3008 is one of the wisest family cars to buy secondhand. Not only is it spacious for five people, it’s cheap, frugal and the diesel engines pull well in and out of town. But more than that - it is a very safe car to travel in.
Sure, it doesn’t have the kerbside appeal of a Qashqai, but it’s a comfortable machine with a massive load area and a practical split tailgate. It’s a car for the masses, one that will head out onto the school run as naturally as pigeons coming home to roost.
