Having evolved from an ovoid shape to SUV, the all-new 2018 Peugeot 3008 has arrived with an impressive list of standard features across the range, resulting in relatively high entry-level pricing. Peugeot has chosen not to introduce models with lower specifications to compete with the entry level competitors of the Mazda CX-5 and Volkswagen Tiguan; focusing instead on the mid-range and high-end models of their competitors.
the 3008 received a radical overhaul, moving from its MPV roots to becoming a crossover. Now more angular and upright than its predecessor, the second-generation design places it firmly as a crossover. At the front, you get a more distinct hood, larger air intakes and new fog lights. Complementing these are signature headlights with a Lion emblem and a concave grill. On its sides, the high waist, large alloy wheels, new side protection moldings and high ground clearance give it a more aggressive look. At the rear, it is equipped with a new hatchback, claw rear lights, a wide rear bumper and a roof mounted spoiler.
Inside, it features the layout of the brand’s i-cockpit dashboard brand. This arrangement consists mainly of a higher level instrument cluster, a compact steering wheel, a 12.3-inch head-up display and a capacitive touch-screen center console with piano keys. It also includes a number of driver aids and other high-tech equipment, as well as enhanced connectivity features. Advanced connectivity is achieved through the Mirror Screen feature that incorporates Apple CarPlay, MirrorLink and Android Auto compatibility. The French SUV is powered exclusively by the front wheels by a four-cylinder 1.6-liter turbo petrol engine with a power of 121 kW and a torque of 240 Nm. Yes, it’s not much on paper but there are many things to move in and around the city and even on the highway. Peugeot quotes a 0-100 km / h of 9.9 seconds, but it’s faster than that. The six-speed transmission is smooth and you do not even know it’s there, which is the best thing you can say about an automatic transmission.
First, it’s not a choice you would make alone on the cost. Prices start at $ 36,990 for Gas, Active Entry, Allure for $ 39,490, GT-Line for $ 43,490 and, if you really need money to burn and want a diesel engine and massage seats, GT arrives at $ 49,490.
