The all-new Peugeot 3008 mid-size SUV will boast a four-tier model line-up, two engines choices and a suite of active safety features when it goes on sale in mid-August.
Set to rival the Mazda CX-5, Ford Escape, and Volkswagen Tiguan, every model in the 3008 range will feature keyless entry and push-button start, dual-zone climate control, roof rails, sat-nav, digital radio, and 18-inch alloy wheels.
The funkily styled interior will also include a large 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster and an 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system.
Autonomous Emergency Braking and speed sign recognition will be standard across the range, which opens with the entry-level Active and tops out with the flagship GT.
Mid-spec Allure and GT-Line models complete the range, with pricing tipped to span from the high $20K mark to just below $50,000.
GT-Line and GT models will feature electrically adjustable massaging front seats, wireless phone charging, and a panoramic sunroof – all of which will be optional extras on the Allure.
Engine-wise, buyers will have the choice of either a 1.6-litre petrol turbo or a 2.0-litre turbo diesel.
Petrol variants will produce 121kW and 240Nm, sent to the front wheels via a six-speed automatic gearbox.
The diesel engine, offered in the range-topping GT, offers 133kW and a muscular 400Nm.
The 3008 is a crucial model for Peugeot and will do battle in one of Australia’s most competitive and lucrative segments. Stay tuned for more details closer to the 3008’s mid-August launch.
