Peugeot has lifted the curtain on an even more striking version of its mid-sized 3008 SUV.

A new frameless grille features at the front, while gloss black side scoops and a painted tread plate are integrated with a new bumper design as standard.

Top level GT and GT Premium trims receive bespoke front grilles that help them stand out even more.

The front headlights have also been redesigned to be more aggressive, with LED technology across the range.

GT and GT Premium trim levels feature full LED headlights with an extended light signature.

The new 3008 SUV comes with ‘Fog Mode’, which replaces the previous fog lights.

It’s integrated into the full LED headlights and switches on the low beam headlights with reduced intensity when the rear fog lights are activated.

At the rear, new upgraded tail lights feature full LED technology with Peugeot’s three-claw rear light signature and sequential indicator lights.

New 3008 SUV is available with a choice of efficient diesel and petrol engines, as well as two advanced plug-in hybrid electric (PHEV) options.

The HYBRID4 300 e-EAT8 features a 147kW PureTech petrol engine and two electric motors for a combined power output of 223kW, with ultra-low emissions of 29g/km CO2 and up to 60km of zero-emissions range.

It is also the only variant available with 4WD.

HYBRID 225 e-EAT8 features a smaller 132kW PureTech petrol unit combined with a single 80kW electric motor for a combined 165kW power output.

Under WLTP testing, it achieves just 30g/km CO2, and in fully electric mode provides a zero-emissions range of 55km.

Both HYBRID models feature a 13.2kWh lithium-ion battery and come with two types of on-board chargers.

A 3.7kW single-phase on board charger is included as standard, with a full charge taking four hours, while an optional 7.4kW  on board charger is also available.

A full charge using a 7.4kW Wall Box will take just one hour and 45 minutes.

New 3008 is also available with 1.2 and 1.6-litre petrol engines, along with a 1.5-litre turbo diesel.

Peugeot’s next generation digital i-Cockpit technology is included with a 12.3-inch digital head-up instrument panel, compact steering wheel for improved driving dynamics and a 10-inch capacitive colour touchscreen.

The new 10-inch touchscreen comes with seven elegant piano ‘toggle switches’ that provide direct access to main control functions, including the radio, Connected 3D Navigation and vehicle settings.

Hybrid variants feature a specific button to access information relating to the electric powertrain.

Petrol and diesel models with the eight-speed automatic transmission now come standard with a drive mode selector that allows the driver to choose between Normal, Sport and Eco modes.

In Hybrid models, the drive mode selector allows owners to switch between Electric (default on start-up), Hybrid, Sport and 4WD modes — with the latter reserved for HYBRID4 300 models.

Peugeot has also updated interior trims available, with new Mistral Nappa Leather upholstery available across the trim levels, new mid-PET and textile upholstery is available on Allure and Allure Premium trim levels and new Mistral Black PET and new Red Nappa Leather upholstery are available on GT and GT Premium models.

GT and GT Premium models will also be available with New Dark Lime Wood window winder with chrome inserts and a new ‘Frameless’ rear-view mirror.

The new PEUGEOT 3008 SUV comes with the latest driving aids and safety features to protect both its occupants and other road users.

  • Night Vision: Unique for the compact SUV segment, the 3008 SUV features Peugeot’s innovative Night Vision technology that allows drivers to view pedestrians and animals on the 12.3-inch digital instrument panel up to 200m beyond the scope of the headlights
  • Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop and Go:Available on models with eight-speed automatic transmission
  • Lane Positioning Assist:As part of the Adaptive Cruise Control, the Lane Positioning Assist technology ensures the vehicle stays within its lane.
  • Latest-Generation Automatic Emergency Braking:Capable of detecting both pedestrians and cyclists at night at speeds from 5 to 140km/h

From Active Premium level up, all new 3008 SUV models come standard with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and Mirror Screen.

There are also two new USB sockets installed for rear passengers to use.

A 515 watt Focal premium audio system is also available.

New Peugeot 3008 does not lob here until the beginning of next year, with prices are equipment levels to be confirmed.
