peugeot_3008_suv_gt_line_5The all-new PEUGEOT 3008 is available to order in December, with first vehicles arriving in dealership showrooms across the UK timed for 28th January 2017.

The PEUGEOT 3008 SUV is a well-equipped and stylish vehicle that combines efficiency, high-specification, high-level of safety and technological equipment and unique features. The UK range starts with a ‘level 2’ specification vehicle (no level 1 in the UK) – so that every model will feature the latest PEUGEOT i-Cockpit®; compact steering wheel, the very latest configurable 12.3″ head-up digital instrument panel and an 8.0″ capacitive touch-screen.

The range starts from £21,795 with a well-specified ‘Active’ model that has so many standard features, key among which is a host of safety equipment ordinarily only available on top-of-the-range models. These include; AEBS – Automatic Emergency Braking System, adaptive driver and front passenger airbags (includes passenger airbag deactivation function), driver and front passenger side, front and rear curtain airbags, CDS – Dynamic Stability Control and ASR – Electronic Anti-skid System, driver attention alert system, Isofix child seat fittings (x3) in the front passenger and outer rear seats, programmable cruise control and speed limiter, and speed limit recognition and recommendation. As a consequence of these and other safety features, substantially reduced repair costs and a 5-star EuroNCAP safety rating, the all-new 3008 SUV has insurance ratings from just 11E (20A on the previous model).

There is a choice of four trim levels – ‘Active’, ‘Allure’ (expected best-selling version), ‘GT Line’ and the top-of-the-range ‘GT’ and a wide choice of engines is available, with CO2 emissions from just 103g/km.

Petrol engine versions are 130hp and 165hp, with CO2 emissions of 117 to 129g/km, with the 1.2-litre PureTech 3-cylinder turbo engine, voted Engine of the Year in its category for the second-year running and the 1.6L THP. The PureTech 130 is available in 6-speed manual or EAT6 automatic transmission while the 165hp is mated to the 6-speed EAT6 automatic.

Four Diesel engines are available, model dependent, with advanced BlueHDi technology that makes it possible to keep the CO2 emissions low, between 103 and 124g/km, with power ranging between 100, 120,150 and 180hp.
