2020 Peugeot 3008 prices and specifications
An Active Premium model now kicks off the range, but even this has all-round parking sensors, dual-zone air con, keyless start, smartphone mirroring and Peugeot’s Safety and Visibility packs.
Allure costs £1,600 more and brings a 10-inch sat nav touchscreen, bigger alloy wheels, extra safety kit and privacy glass, while Allure Premium is a further £700 (starting at £29,460) and includes keyless entry, ambient lighting and a folding front passenger seat.
GT replaces the old GT Line trim and adds adaptive cruise control, LED headlights and seats trimmed in leather-effect and Alcantara suede. It also features a black roof and alloy wheels, and starts from £31,260 (around £600 more than pre-facelift cars). GT Premium costs an extra £4,000 over GT but gets luxury kit like a 360-degree parking camera, heated and massaging front seats, and an upgraded stereo system.
2020 Peugeot 3008 design
The new 3008 gets a number of minor exterior design tweaks, with redesigned LED headlights, a new front grille and the ‘3D claw’ style LED daytime running lights similar to those seen on the 2008 and 208. At the rear, the redesigned full LED tail lights feature a smoked finish. The GT and GT Premium models can be specced with a new ‘Black Pack’ option that adds 19-inch alloy wheels and a gloss black finish to various exterior trim pieces. Buyers can pick from seven paint finishes, with Celebes Blue and Vertigo Blue added for 2020.
Interior and technology
Interior updates vary by trim level but include a new Nappa leather upholstery option in two different colours, Alcantara lining, and a textile upholstery option. A new frameless rear-view mirror also features, along with a dark lime wood option. The 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster uses a new display, which has improved contrast that Peugeot says makes it easier to read. The car’s main central infotainment system has Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and the touchscreen is 10 inches in size and higher definition than before. It has seven toggle switches mounted beneath it, allowing direct control of functions such as air conditioning and the stereo. Wireless smartphone charging and additional USB charging sockets have also been added to the interior. Elsewhere, a new 515-watt FOCAL premium stereo system can also be specced, featuring bronze speaker grilles.
The revised 3008 carries over the same petrol, diesel and plug-in hybrid powertrains from the previous car. The entry-level 1.2-litre engine is a turbocharged three-cylinder petrol engine that produces 128bhp. Above this is a four-cylinder 1.6-litre petrol with 178bhp or a 1.5-litre diesel engine that produces 128bhp. The 1.2-litre petrol and the diesel comes with a six-speed manual gearbox as standard, while an eight-speed automatic is optional on these and standard on the more powerful petrol engine.
The two plug-in hybrid powertrains are also carried over, with both featuring a 1.6-litre PureTech petrol engine. The front-wheel-drive version features a single electric motor and produces 222bhp. The flagship four-wheel-drive Hybrid4 features a pair of electric motors, and produces 296bhp. Both models produce a low CO2 emissions figure of 30g/km or lower and are capable of over 35 miles of pure-electric range.
Active Premium only gets the least powerful engines and a manual gearbox, while Allure unlocks the hybrids and the option of an automatic gearbox. The 1.6-litre petrol is reserved for GT and GT Premium, with the latter only available with automatic gearboxes and the hybrids.
