The multi-tasking Peugeot 3008 – a crossover with all of the facilities of an SUV – is the responsible and thoroughly versatile choice for a busy lifestyle. Thanks to cutting edge technology and robust engineering, the new Peugeot 3008 has seen a decrease in weight and emissions without any compromise in safety or performance.
The Peugeot 3008 is a family friendly car, which was initially designed as a cross between a hatchback and a people carrier. There is a selection of models to choose from. The entry level model has a five speed gearbox, 1.6 litre petrol engine, 120bhp and can go from 0-62mph in a reasonable 11.8 seconds. All of the other models have a six speed manual gearbox. The diesel model is the most fuel efficient and has a 1.6 Hdi with 110bhp. The top range diesel model contains a 2.0 Hdi, has 150bhp and can move from 0-62 in an impressive 9.7 seconds; giving it exceptional pulling power.
Although the Peugeot 3008 looks like a people carrier, the handling is very similar to a hatchback. It has weighted and responsive steering and provides a relaxing drive on long journeys. The hydraulic system on the 1.6 litre and 2.0 Hdi models will automatically soften or stiffen the suspension, making it comfortable even when moving over bumps and grooves on the road.
The Peugeot 3008 boasts plenty of headroom for all of the passengers due to the high roof. There is also a great deal of legroom in both the front and rear seats, allowing it to comfortably sit three adults in the back. The car has very low levels of engine and wind noise, further improving comfort levels on long journeys. Exclusive models contain a multimedia system with a sat-nav, USB connection and built in DVD player.
There is a large amount of space available to passengers and the car has a selection of different storage locations. Drink bottle holders and door pockets also come as standard. The boot space can hold up to 512 litres of luggage and the rear seats can be folded to create a 2.5 metre long flat loading bay. The boot door has two different opening options. The upper portion can open upwards giving partial access, which can be great for shopping bags and smaller items; whilst the lower section can be lowered to offer complete access.
The Peugeot 3008 is a very safe car, providing six airbags and a shock distributing body design. Flash warnings will also be activated on the front display so the driver will become aware of distance issues. Security is tight with remote locking as standard. The abundance of storage spaces will also ensure that valuables will remain well hidden. Exclusive models also benefit from an alarm and immobilizer system.
