NEW PEUGEOT 3008
A NEW LION IS BORN!
THE ALL NEW PEUGEOT 3008 - ARRIVING SOON!
The Peugeot 3008 MPV has been reinvented as a small SUV and is set to make its debut at September’s Paris Motor Show. It will go on sale in the UK from October, with deliveries starting in January 2017.
The raised ride height, upright nose, long bonnet, body cladding and roof bars all give the new 3008 a more utilitarian look. But the wide grille, LED lights, sculpted bonnet and floating roofline add a dose of style, too – a huge step on from the previous MPV-like design, especially thanks to the large 18-inch wheels.
We’ve already had a taste of the interior, with Peugeot revealing its new i-Cockpit. The dash and centre console wrap around the driver and the small steering wheel and high-set display mean it’s easier to see the dials from the driver’s seat. The 12.3-inch high-res screen can be configured how you like, with sat-nav maps, media info or conventional dials. This system complements an eight-inch touchscreen in the middle of the dash with some sleek-looking vents and ‘piano key’ switches to control the infotainment system’s important features. MirrorLink and Apple CarPlay are available, too. Chrome detailing features throughout the cabin.
The engine range includes two petrols and two diesels with a choice of power outputs. The 1.2-litre PureTech petrol has 128bhp and comes with a six-speed manual or automatic gearbox, while the 1.6-litre petrol with 163bhp only gets the automatic transmission.
As you might expect, the diesel range is more expansive. The 1.6-litre BlueHDi unit is available with a five or six-speed manual or a six-speed automatic box in two different power outputs – 99bhp or 118bhp. The larger 2.0-litre BlueHDi diesel has 148bhp or 178bhp, and is available with the manual or automatic six-speed transmission. There are no hybrid or electric models from launch but a plug-in hybrid version of the 3008 will arrive in 2019.
Keen to emphasise its SUV capabilities, Peugeot has fitted the 3008 with Grip Control to tackle snow, mud and sand, as well as off-road tyres and hill descent control. The car can also be specced with creature comforts such as massage seats, a premium stereo and a panoramic sunroof.
Safety kit options include city auto braking, lane keep assist, driver attention alert and automatic high beams, plus road sign recognition, blind spot monitoring and adaptive cruise control. A 360-degree camera helps with parking in tight spots.
The new 3008 is built on a new platform called EMP2, which is an important part of Peugeot’s plan to release nine new models by 2021. The platform saves weight, which means that the 3008 is around 100kg lighter than the outgoing model, lowering emissions and improving fuel economy.
