Key rival: Nissan Qashqai

I like an electric parking brake as it frees up interior space, but it needs to confirm its active status quickly to fully reassure.

Set to automatically applying the brake when the engine's off and release it when you press the accelerator, the 3008's can be manually overridden. But with the otherwise useful hill-start assist, which holds the brake for two seconds on slopes, it can seem like the park brake has not disengaged, so you can end up fiddling with the switch again and turning it back 'on'. Practice helps, but there must be a way to improve its speed and visual confirmation?
