Peugeot’s new SUV has been four years in the making. Its elegant lines and sporting power distinguish it from the previous crossover model, earning it a coveted spot among other full-size SUVs.
TAKING ON THE SUV MARKET
During an official presentation in early October, Carlos Tavares, Chairman of the PSA Group Managing Board, summarised PSA’s ambition for the new Peugeot 3008 as follows: “The Peugeot 3008 is a vehicle that will allow us to take back the European market and win customers worldwide”. The new SUV was made to stand out from the competition. Its cat-like design – apparent in the front and back of the vehicle, with taillights that look like claw marks – and its responsive, powerful driving performance represent a break with the previous model.

IT’S ALREADY A HIT
Elegance and attention to detail define the new Peugeot 3008. The dashboard features a high definition digital instrument panel with five different display settings to choose from. The six piano-like control buttons provide direct access to the radio, air conditioning, navigation assistance, vehicle settings, mobile phone and applications. Peugeot’s i-Cockpit concept gives the cockpit a modern feel and ensures optimum driver comfort.
On top of these features, it offers best-in-class handling and strikes the right balance between comfort and performance, making it a prime example of the brand’s expertise and reputation.
And the Peugeot 3008 is already a hit! As many as 1,360 orders were placed at the most recent Paris Motor Show and 24,000 have been recorded to date in Europe, including 15,000 in France alone. “Peugeot has sold three times more units than expected,” raved the management of the Sochaux plant.
