New 3008 and 3008 HYbrid4 Crossover, now with a new look for a completely new experience

The PEUGEOT 3008 is a success due to its strong character. Aimed at customers who are freed from convention, this compact Crossover goes beyond the segments to combine the best of the SUV, a Hatchback and an MPV.

This Crossover was innovated by offering the combination of diesel and electric propulsion as a world-first

"For the 3008, the Marque has been bold enough to opt for a nonconformist combination and strong stylistic trends. The interior is just as innovative with a stimulating architecture. Proof of the Marque's capacity for innovation and of its environmental leadership, the HYbrid4 technology is a great success."

Maxime Picat, Director General, Automobiles PEUGEOT

A natural, intense and elegant presence

Adopting the latest stylistic codes of the marque, the 3008 affirms its character and its qualities with force: high-quality and contemporary style, strength, comfort in all situations, and driving sensations with the ability to adapt.

The innovative technological headlamps with their lively look also appear to be set in the bodywork.

The Lion badge dominates this rich, high-quality front face. The movement which starts from its recess runs across the bonnet which is naturally followed by the windscreen and the roof. The Lion also adorns the tailgate, accompanied by the name of the marque. New tail lights with a dark tint set off the light signature innovatively - lit by LEDs, the three floating claws have a sharp design and emerge from the lamp with a 3D effect.

Instruments and controls, the basis of the experience

On opening the door, the passenger compartment proves to be a new source of surprise and attraction.  The light provided by the panoramic glass roof reveals the instruments and controls with supreme ergonomics with high quality and clarity.

The controls permitting control of the progress of the vehicle are grouped together on the centre console the driver can switch from one function to another with ease which promises great reactivity.

Comfort and practicality of use

The occupants feel relaxed, wherever they are seated, due to a high level of soundproofing and a large glazed surface area which bathes the passenger compartment in light. The panoramic glass roof increases the glazing to an impressive 5m².

Technological equipment for increased safety

Beyond the considerable developments in its occupant protection, the PEUGEOT 3008 Crossover has a range of technological features to improve safety as standard equipment Also, using a 24GHz radar installed at the front of the vehicle, the Distance Alert continuously calculates the distance from the vehicle in front, expressed in seconds. If this measurement falls below the threshold stipulated by the driver, a visual alert appears on the head up display.

In town, the available space measurement system informs the driver as soon as a suitable sized space is found to park the vehicle

Once the vehicle has been parked, the electric handbrake is applied automatically when the ignition is switched off. An ECU, linked with the ESP, manages the force to be applied according to the gradient. It remains on standby while the vehicle is immobilised to adjust the force if necessary. If

Storage compartment for all seats

For everyday practicality, the passenger compartment has numerous storage compartments, amounting to a total of nearly 50-litres.

Well thought-out modularity

The tailgate and the lower tailgate or hobby can bear a load of 200kg, opening up a very accessible boot.

The 3008 HYbrid4, the first diesel-electric full-hybrid Crossover

As a world first, the combination of a 2.0-litre HDi FAP diesel engine of 120kW (163bhp) and an electric motor of 27kW (37bhp) has resulted in the HYbrid4 technology. It permits a true breakthrough in terms of reduction in fuel consumption and CO2 emissions but also four-wheel drive with the internal combustion engine driving the front wheels and the electric motor the rear wheels.

Simple to use, the best-selling diesel-electric hybrid technology in the world allows the driver to choose between four different driving modes:

-          In Auto mode, the electronics automatically control the whole system, making optimum use of the internal combustion engine and the electric motor.

-          The ZEV mode (Zero Emission Vehicle) provides access to an extended electric drive. The 3008 then becomes the ultimate ecological vehicle, due to the total absence of pollutant emissions and noise.

-           The four-wheel drive mode (4WD) improves traction by stipulating the use of both the engine and motor to work together to ensure grip and traction are optimised.

-            The Sport mode, favouring dynamism, authorises a more responsive throttle response and more rapid than are programmed in the Auto mode. The full dynamic potential of the 3008 HYbrid4 is then mobilised to achieve maximum performance.
