The original Peugeot 3008 was marred by its weird, blobby tall-boy not-quite a minivan, not quite an SUV looks. The second generation model fixes that.
The new Peugeot 3008 embraces the worldwide shift to SUV crossovers, and is based on the same EMP2 platform as the 308 hatch and sedan.
Inside, the Peugeot 3008 is the first Peugeot to feature the company’s new i-Cockpit design with high mounted digital instrument, a floating tablet infotainment display, a reduced number of buttons, and a airplane cockpit style design.
Top end models have a 10-speaker Focal sound system with a 515W 12-channel amp and 200mm Flower Power subwoofer. The rear split folds and lies flat for improved luggage carrying. The 3008 comes with 17, 18 and 19 inch wheels depending on model.
Available safety tech includes automatic high beams, speed sign recognition, adaptive cruise control with stop, active blind spot monitoring, parking assistance, and surround view cameras.
Gas engines include the 130PS (96kW) 1.2-liter PureTech with 6-speed manual or 6-speed auto, and 165PS (121kW) 1.6-liter THP with 6-speed auto.
Diesel engines include the 100PS (74kW) 1.6-liter BlueHDi with 5-speed manual, 120PS (88kW) 1.6-liter BlueHDi with either a 6-speed manual or 6-speed auto, 150PS (110kW) 2-liter BlueHDi with 6-speed manual, and 180PS (132kW) 2-liter BlueHDi with 6-speed auto.
The Peugeot 3008 debuts at the Paris Motor Show in October, and goes on sale in November although UK deliveries won’t start until January 2017.
