Article by Christian Andrei, on August 26, 2010

Pricing for Peugeot's new 3008 crossover will start at £15,995 when it goes on sale in November. The 3008 combines SUV, MPV and family hatchback qualities in one car and will be available in three trim levels: Active, Sport and Exclusive.

Standard kit on Active models includes 17-inch steel wheels with Michelin energy saver tires, electric windows, air conditioning, ESP and a leather steering wheel.

Extra features on Sport models include body-colored bumpers, 17-inch alloy wheels and cruise control.

Exclusive models get a panoramic glass roof, chrome bumpers, and automatic headlights and wipers as standard. Six powertrains are offered across the range, including two petrol and three diesel engines.

The 1.6 VTi 120 will be mated to a five-speed manual, while the 1.6 THP 150, HDi 110 FAP and HDi 150 FAP all get a six-speed manual gearbox.

The HDi 163 FAP gets the six-speed auto 'box, while the HDi 110 FAP EGC is mated to Peugeot's electronically controlled 'box, which allows the driver to manually change gear without using the clutch. The 3008 with the lowest CO2 emissions is the HDi 110 FAP EGC, which emits 130g/km while returning 57.7mpg.

There were plenty of options for customers when it came to the interior and exterior of their Peugeot 3008. They can take their pick from eight paint colors for the exterior, and two options for standard interior trims.

Space is abundant in the interiors of the Peugeot 3008. Comfort is always a companion to spaciousness, but Peugeot adds in safety to that mix.

Six airbags are standard features to the 3008 series, while the seat belts are equipped to minimize the force of impact to the driver’s body. The Euro NCAP recognized Peugeot’s efforts towards making the 3008 the safest vehicle of its class, giving it five stars.

PEUGEOT REVEALS SPECIFICATION AND PRICING DETAILS OF THE NEW 3008

Peugeot has been a leading pioneer in many new motoring concepts, from the first four valve per cylinder twin cam engines of the 1900’s, to the first production car with independent front suspension (201); the first “folding roof cars” (401 Eclipse); electric sliding front doors on the Peugeot 1007 and now the new Peugeot 3008, another new concept ideal for today’s modern lifestyles.

The Peugeot 3008 is aimed directly at the heart of the medium car segment and is the perfect choice for customers who are looking for something different. Whether these customers currently drive a conventional saloon car, MPV, SUV or a hatchback, the 3008 provides a new alternative which spans all these different vehicle types. It has the flexibility and space of an MPV, the rugged looks of an SUV and the vehicle dynamics of a family hatchback.

It can be the conventional car for daily use, the family car for weekends and holidays and the adventurous vehicle for those with an active life style. Simply put, the car is greater than the sum of its individual strengths, offering many advantages over a conventional car.
