The old Peugeot 3008 crossover looked more MPV than SUV.

The new model looks much tougher and more distinctive – it’s available with only front-wheel drive, but it has plenty of 4×4 styling cues.

This is a new car under the skin, too, promising to be better to drive while delivering excellent fuel economy and low emissions.

We’re here to test the BlueHDi 120 in GT Line spec, to see what tow car ability it has – it’s priced at £27,345.

First and foremost, we want to know how well the 3008 tows.

As always, stability is the quality we value most, but is the compact 1.6-litre engine up to the job of towing?

We also want to discover if the latest Peugeot 3008 makes a practical everyday car.
