We’ll have a full breakdown of what you really need to know about the Peugeot 3008 in the next day or so, but in brief, expect to see all models come with Peugeot’s 12.3-inch head-up digital instrument panel and an 8.0-inch central touch-screen (called i-Cockpit).

Standard safety features, include adaptive front airbags, driver and front passenger side airbags and front and rear curtain airbags, stability control and ABS, Driver Attention Alert system, Lane Departure Warning, ISOFIX child seat fittings, programmable cruise control with speed limiter and speed-limit recognition and recommendation. 

Buyers will be able to choose from petrol and diesel engines with the 1.6-litre THP 165 petrol and 2.0-litre BlueHDi 180 diesel, both fitted with the six-speed automatic transmission. The THP 165 petrol engine develops 121kW at 6000rpm and 240Nm of torque at 1400rpm. The BlueHDi 180 diesel makes 133kW at 3750rpm and 400Nm of torque at 2000rpm.

Peugeot said, “[the] 3008 SUV not only embodies ownership values but also meets the desire for personal expression and the need for escapism while enjoying new experiences. Today’s drivers want their driving experiences enriched by emotions and that starts with a welcoming cabin that can be personalised to be as relaxing as the family home. In other words, they desire a modern luxury SUV”.

  1. Wow. 121/240. Breathtaking. I must not be one of today’s drivers. I want a vehicle with a bit of grunt. I get rather tired of marketers telling me what I want. I am actually able to determine that for myself.

    1. Did you really expect a performance SUV from the French. While they continue to use that flogged to death 1.6l engine, it’ll always be gutless. Just be happy if the ergonomics aren’t woeful.
