Throughout the month of December, Accept Car Finance will be focusing on the 12 Cars Of Christmas as a way to highlight a dozen models that are perfectly suited to the frosty temperatures, challenging weather and icy road conditions. Today, we present the Sixth Car Of Christmas, and playing the role of Six Geese-A-Laying is the Peugeot 3008.
Peugeot 3008 At A Glance
The Peugeot 3008 came to life in 2009, and it has to be said that it endured a somewhat rocky start, given that the range received some significant criticism for its visual look. Indeed, those within the industry questioned whether the styling of the interior would really appeal to motorists; a car does not necessarily have to win the automotive equivalent of a beauty contest, but the general outer presentation of the vehicle did raise some eyebrows for the wrong reasons. Nevertheless, it’s safe to say that the Peugeot 3008 overcame these initial jabs and has been able to prove itself as a winner with drivers.
The biggest reason for this is that, while analysts were focusing on how the car looked from the outside, Peugeot made sure that the 3008 was super-efficient and reliable on the inside, which is where it really matters. As a result, the 3008 quickly picked up some significant accolades: in 2010, it was named as the Car Of The Year by WhatCar? magazine, a prestigious honour to attain. It also obtained high praise in the Irish market, with the vehicle being named as the Semperit Irish Car Of The Year, also in 2010.
And the awards have kept on coming since its second and current generation offering was officially released back in 2016. The vehicle was the recipient of the Car Of The Year honour for both Car Buyer and Diesel Car Magazine in 2017, as well as the latter naming it as the “Best Medium SUV”. In 2018, it was also named the Continental Irish Car Of The Year. These momentous achievements have coincided with strong sales figures for the 3008, as the series has allowed Peugeot to be amongst the highest-selling range of vehicles for the manufacturer, not only in the United Kingdom but internationally too.
So what features have made the 3008 such a difference-maker? To begin with, the car has plenty of space, meaning that for all of the passengers on-board, there is a lot of legroom and clear storage for the likes of bags and cases, ideal for longer journeys. It is also a very comfortable vehicle to travel in, and it has a smooth driving experience that almost makes it feel like you are not driving, such is the ease of accessibility and the relaxing vibe that both the motorist and any passengers can enjoy. And it is a powerful vehicle boasting strong engines and fuel supplies, which enhance the reliability and general durability of the motor.
Suitability For Winter
When the winter season arrives, the appeal of the Peugeot 3008 becomes even clearer. The car has a Grip Control system in place, which translated means that the vehicle combines with 18-inch alloy wheels (which, it must be said, may need to be purchased separately) to offer increased control and road management on the slippery surfaces and through the more challenging weather conditions. In addition, the Peugeot 3008 received a perfect 5/5 safety rating earlier this year by Driver Power, as well as scoring very high when it came to Euro NCAP crash testing. The reason why the winter season proves to be such a hindrance for drivers is that the change in climate, temperature and road conditions contribute to compromise driver and passenger safety, so it is hugely important for a vehicle to be able to handle these elements while protecting all travellers. The Peugeot 3008 not only manages to achieve this, but does so easily, making it a very reliable vehicle for anyone wanting to safely navigate the coldest time of the year.
Current Finance Plans for the Peugeot 3008
Amongst our wide range of finance plans for a variety of vehicles, we have one that will appeal to anyone wishing to add a Peugeot 3008 to their collection in the near future. It is a very recent car, that being a 2018 registration model from the 3008 series. It has a colourful red bodywork and a mileage to date of only 18,000. The vehicle has a 1200 engine and runs on petrol with manual transmission, and to buy the car today, it will cost just £79 per week, which translates to £316 per month.
The Peugeot 3008 has always enjoyed strong sales and high customer and industry feedback when it comes to performance, as evidenced by its plethora of major awards. But when the winter months arrive, the 3008 becomes even more important and even more appealing to drivers. The car’s reputation would be enough to warrant a sale, but when you factor in how the vehicle is perfectly suited towards handling the cold snap, it is hard to look past the Peugeot 3008 for anyone aiming to buy a car in time for Christmas that isn’t just a short-term buy, but a long-term investment. We would recommend conducting research on the numerous tools that can be bought to link up with various features that the 3008 offers, because this can elevate the quality of the driving experience to another level. But even if you stick with what you have at first glance, the Peugeot 3008 is an outstanding vehicle that comes highly recommended, especially for driving in this challenging winter period.
