With the rapidly growing market of SUV crossovers, the new Peugeot 3008 SUV is a key player in this growing category. Not only does it come with fresh new styling, but it has all of the high-tech equipment at hand with its new i-cockpit design.
From a multi-functional steering wheel to a configurable heads-up digital panel and a central touchscreen, the Peugeot 3008 combines unique and new features with safety and efficiency.
Here are seven things you might not know about this gem:
1: It has Amazing Safety Equipment on all Base Models
This means that not only will you get adaptive front airbags, but you will receive side, front and rear curtain airbags too. There is an electronic anti-skid system in place, a lane departure warning, dynamic stability control and of course a driver attention alert system. Plus, the programmable cruise control has a speed limit on it to recognize and recommend proper speed limits.
2: The Interior Design is Futuristic
The interior has a high-quality technological design which oozes sleek, high-end quality. The main areas of operation and information are highly defined and compact.
The steering wheel is rather small in size and comes with flat sections that are pronounced on both the top and bottom. This gives the steering wheel a natural shape to grip onto.
Add black glossed trims, chrome inserts, and high-quality leather and you have one very sleek looking interior. Not to mention that the heads up display looks like a futuristic tablet.
3: An Impeccable Driving Experience
The Peugeot 3008 sets you up with a higher center of gravity, giving you a higher driving position and a raised height off the ground in comparison to other SUVs on the market.
Normally this is a detriment for SUVs but with the 3008, it actually gives the driver an excellent feeling of safety and agility. Plus, you never have to fear steep slopes anymore because the Peugeot 3008 has Hill Assist Descent Control, ensuring that the driver has maximum control when going down slopes.
In addition to this, the precise steering, advanced grip control, and off-roading capabilities make the experience wonderful.
4: Multiple Driving Aids
It comes with a driver attention warning, active land departure warnings, distance alert and safety brakes, speed limit sign recognition, adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring and automatic adaptive headlamps. The SUV also comes with Visio Park which gives a full 360-degree vision when parking, perfect for driving in large cities.
5: Permanent Connectivity
You will have constant access to smartphone charging, 3D navigation, and mirror screen technology.
The 3D navigation shows maps, chosen routes, and images of the surrounding buildings and landmarks. The images that come with the 3D navigation can actually be copied from the touch screen to the digital instrument, which allows you to view it easier.
6: Intelligent Design
The Peugeot comes with a two-position floor which allows you to load up the two sections with goods and keep them separated, allowing for easy load-up.
Plus, the rear seat will give way to a fully flat floor if need be as it split-folds. The front passenger seat also folds all the way down allowing you to load up, up to three meters in length and the tailgate is motorized so you can open up the back hands-free.
7: Ultra-Low Fuel Consumption
The Peugeot 3008 has lower fuel consumption because of its aerodynamic design and optimized dimensions. It has ultra-low rolling resistance and comes with a wide range of Euro 6.1 engines which are powerful but still frugal in the consumption range.
If the above wasn’t enough, this Peugeot SUV comes in four different model levels; the Active, Allure, GT Line, GT Level Line and has two distinctive front-end designs, one being a radiator grille and the other a chiseled chequered grille.
