The new PEUGEOT 3008 SUV introduces new styling features, more technology and class leading safety features to the compact SUV segment. With a choice of plug-in hybrid, petrol and diesel powertrains, plus new trim levels, the new 3008 SUV will arrive in UK showrooms in the coming months.
A STRIKING NEW DESGIN
As part of PEUGEOT’s commitment to instinctive design, the front end of the new PEUGEOT 3008 SUV has been made even more striking. A new frameless grille features at the front, while gloss black side scoops and a painted treadplate are integrated with the new bumper design as standard. Top level GT and GT Premium trims receive their own bespoke front grilles to stand out even more.
The front headlights have also been redesigned to be more aggressive, and feature 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. The mode is 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 taillights feature full LED technology with PEUGEOT’s iconic three-claw rear light signature and sequential indicator lights.
The new 3008 SUV will be available with the following new colour options
· Celebes Blue

IMPROVED INTERIOR TECHNOLOGY & FEATURES
The new 3008 SUV features PEUGEOT’s next generation digital i-Cockpit® technology with a 12.3-inch digital head-up instrument panel, a compact steering wheel for improved driving dynamics and, now, across all trim levels, a 10-inch capacitive colour touchscreen.
The new 10-inch touchscreen comes with seven elegant piano ‘toggle switches’ providing 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 equipped with PEUGEOT’s eight-speed automatic transmission now come fitted as 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 (the default mode on start-up), Hybrid, Sport and 4WD modes, with the latter reserved for the HYBRID4 300 models only.
PEUGEOT has also updated the interior trims available in the new 3008 SUV
· New Mistral Nappa Leather upholstery is available across the trim levels

A CHOICE OF EFFICIENT POWERTRAINS
As part of PEUGEOT’s new philosophy of ‘choose your PEUGEOT, choose your powertrain,’ the 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.
Built on PEUGEOT’s Efficient Modular Platform 2 (EMP2), the HYBRID4 300 e-EAT8 features a 200hp (147kW) PureTech petrol engine and two electric motors for a combined power output of 300hp (223kW), with ultra-low emissions of 29g/km CO2 and up to 36 miles of zero-emissions range. It is also the only variant available with 4WD.
The HYBRID 225 e-EAT8 features a smaller 180hp (132kW) PureTech petrol unit combined with a single 110hp (80kW) electric motor for a combined 225hp (165kW) power output. Under WLTP testing, the HYBRID 225 e-EAT8 achieves just 30g/km CO2, and in fully electric mode provides a zero-emissions range of 34 miles.
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.
