New Peugeot 3008 revealed
The updated Peugeot 3008 and 5008 MPVs have been revealed with a fresh new look
This revised model features a new front end, which brings the new Peugeot 3008 up to date with the company's model line-up and makes it look a bit more like the larger Peugeot 5008 MPV which has also had a slight redesign (see gallery). The new chrome trim and headlight designs are the most striking features, but the redesign also includes a change of rear lights as well. These changes bring both cars in line with the current styling found on the rest of the Peugeot range.
Equipment for the new Peugeot 3008 will include a head-up display, a reversing camera, cruise control, a proximity sensor for cars ahead, sat-nav, parking sensors and leather seats. All model get an electronic parking brake and hill start assist as standard, too.
For extra practicality, the boot floor and rear seats can be adjusted to your needs, which means the new 3008 gets a 512-litre boot – the same as the old model – even though this new car is slightly smaller on the outside. With the rear seats down the boot space can expand to 1604 litres including the extra storage compartments at the sides of the boot.
The new Peugeot 3008 comes with a choice of petrol, diesel and hybrid engines using a five or six-speed manual or a six-speed automatic gearbox. The range of petrol engines varies from 120bhp to 163bhp models, but all are 1.6-litres. The most efficient petrol gets 42.1mpg and 155g/km CO2, while the most powerful petrol model gets 33.6mpg and 193g/km CO2.
The diesel models include 1.6-litre and 2.0-litre engines, which can get up to 67.2mpg in the lower powered model and 46.3mpg in the 163bhp 2.0-litre engine. The ‘HYbrid4’ model is the most efficient of all, getting a claimed 83mpg and 88g/km CO2 from its combined diesel and electric motors.
Four-wheel drive and a system that helps with grip and traction are available on the new Peugeot 3008, though no pricing or specification details have been announced yet. However, we expect the new car to cost a little more than the previous model, starting at around £18,000.
