If you can get over its controversial looks - the Peugeot 3008 crossover could make for a decent family ride. It was introduced in 2009, and is available with a strong range of engines. There's even a diesel-electric hybrid model available, the first mass-produced car of its sort in the world. Cars with the optional Dynamic Ride Control handle and ride much better than standard cars, but overall - the 3008 is a compelling package. It's spacious, good quality, and scores five-stars in Euro NCAP safety tests.
