The much-anticipated new Peugeot 3008 SUV will be launched in Ireland in early 2017 and brings to market a striking, bold SUV design, Peugeot's revolutionary new-generation iCockpit interior, high levels of equipment and class-leading PureTech petrol and BlueHDi engines.
Hugo Loonam Motors, Cloghan, Co Offaly will showcase the new 3008 SUV from Monday, November 7, to Saturday, November 12.
With the new 3008 SUV, well-balanced SUV proportions are combined with the boundless creativity of Peugeot designers to create a powerful, bold SUV that is sure to catch the eye. A wide chrome-trimmed grille houses the lion badge in its centre. A piercing feline look comes from narrow halogen headlamps, which sharpens further when full LED lamps are fitted, according to trim.
There are numerous wide open air intakes. An optional gloss black roof, which stretches to the rear spoiler, is a key styling feature. At the rear, beneath the inclined rear window, a gloss black band incorporates the opalescent LED tail lamps, featuring the three claw-marks that make the Peugeot visual signature so clearly identifiable. Whatever angle it is approached from, the new 3008 SUV is attractive, streamlined, well thought-out and tasteful.
Getting into the new Peugeot 3008 SUV is to enter another world. A spectacular dashboard immediately catches the eye; the latest generation Peugeot i-Cockpit(r ) will be introduced on new 3008 SUV as standard. The steering wheel is even more compact than before and has been redesigned with two flats to make it easier to grip, also affording the driver maximum visibility and legroom.
A large 8" touch-screen installed in the centre of the dashboard is accompanied by six elegant piano-key toggle switches giving direct access to the main control functions. The head-up instrument panel has morphed into a high-resolution 12.3" screen with futuristic graphics. It can be configured from five different display modes controlled from the steering wheel, bringing together all that the driver could want in his field of view.
The new Peugeot 3008 has genuine off-road capability thanks to its Advanced Grip Control, standard or optional according to the model. This enhanced traction system utilises a combination of equipment: optimised traction control with five grip levels (normal, snow, mud, sand, ESP, and off ) controlled from a knob on the centre console; 18'' mud & snow tyres; hill assist descent control (HADC ), a new descent assist function giving perfect and completely safe control over the vehicle and its path on steep slopes.
Des Cannon, managing director at Gowan Distributors Limited, Peugeot importers in Ireland, said: "The much-anticipated new Peugeot 3008 SUV aims to assert itself as a major player in the C-SUV segment and it certainly has all the necessary credentials to deliver. Our new Peugeot 3008 SUV national roadshow, over four weeks, will work hard to showcase the new model to existing 3008 owners, some of whom are proud owners of their third 3008. It will undoubtedly also capture the attention of many new conquests to the Peugeot brand."
