New Peugeot 3008 revealed
With a longer wheelbase and an overall length which is just 80mm longer than the current model, interior space has improved, most notably for rear occupants who now have an additional 24mm legroom, 4mm elbow room and 36mm headroom. Front elbow space has also increased by 17mm despite the width of the new model being identical to the outgoing version at 1840mm, and height being 19mm lower at 1620mm.
Luggage space has also improved in the new 3008. With a luggage capacity of 520L (under the luggage cover), this is almost 90L bigger than the previous generation. Like the previous version, owners can remove the luggage cover and fold the second row of seats flat; this results in a total luggage capacity of 1580 litres, one of the largest and most versatile load capacities in the segment.
Despite the improvements in passenger and luggage capacities, the new model is, on average, 100kg lighter than the previous generation versions. This has been achieved though intelligent design and use of materials to provide improved efficiency, better fuel economy, increased performance, a more dynamic driving experience and class leading safety.
The adaptable moving boot floor, initiated on the original 3008, has been evolved with two positions to allow the optimisation of boot space and removable side-panels that can be affixed to the side boot trim. For the carrying of long objects, the front passenger seat can be folded to allow a smaller width item of 3 metres to be carried (like skis) on all versions. This clever functionality can be further completed with a hands-free opening tailgate, allowing a simple gesture of the foot under the rear bumper to open or to close the motorised tailgate.
Available on the new 3008 is Active Safety Brake and Distance Alert, a distance alert function (risk of collision warning) with automatic emergency braking (to avoid a collision or to limit the severity by reducing vehicle speed) and Active Involuntary Crossing Line, a lane departure alert for safer driving with visual and audible warnings and active vehicle control.
The new model also has the Driver Alert Warning function; with constant analysis of vehicle trajectory against road markings, it can then trigger several levels of audible and visual alerts and remind drivers to take a break after two hours of continuous driving and at a speed greater than 65km/h (40mph).
The new 3008 comes with a range of fuel efficient petrol and diesel engines.
Four petrol models are available, including the 1.2-litre PureTech 130 Stop&Start (S&S) with CO2 emission of just 115g/km:

The Peugeot 3008 GT Hybrid4 combines four-wheel drive and 300PS with ultra-low emissions of just 29g/km, according to official WLTP testing.
The new plug-in hybrid is powered by a combination of a 147kW (200PS) 1.6-litre PureTech petrol engine and two electric motors, creating a combined power output of 220kW (300PS), and will accelerate from 0-60mph in 5.9 seconds. The 13.2kWh battery provides up to 36 miles of 100% electric, or zero emission range, with a full charge taking less than two hours using a 7kW chargepoint.
The 3008 SUV GT Hybrid4 is the first 3008 SUV available with four-wheel drive, while the ultra-low 29g/km CO2 emissions means the vehicle classifies in the lowest Benefit-in-Kind rate for business and fleet users. The all-new plug-in hybrid attracts a BIK rating of 10% from April 2020.
The 3008 GT Hybrid4 will be joined by a 165kW (225PS) front-wheel drive model. The front-wheel drive PHEV will combine a 132kW (180PS) PureTech petrol unit, with an 80kW (110PS) electric motor, located on the front axle, that is controlled via an EAT8 8-speed automatic gearbox.
