Peugeot Unveils Its All New Compact 3008 SUV.

Peugeot has a strong record of producing good and reliable cars and I don't think they will be done anytime soon. This time they came back in a grand style with The All New Peugeot 3008 Compact SUV and I think this is to show its popular Japanese rivals that they are here to stay.

The 3008 SUV interior is big and spacious, measuring up at 4.5m long, 1.8m wide and 1.6m tall. Revealing its new i-Cockpit which comes with 12.3-inch digital interface, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, accessible through an eight-inch touchscreen right in the centre console.

The 3008 also comes with other features like city auto braking, lane keep assist, automatic high beams, plus road sign recognition, blind spot monitoring and adaptive cruise control, anti-collision warning, and a 360-degree camera that helps with parking in tight spots.

The 3008 engine will come in 1.2-litre and 1.6-litre petrol units, and an optional 1.6-litre and 2.0-litre diesel engines. The 1.2 litre packs 128bhp and will come with a six-speed manual or automatic transmission while the 1.6 litre packs 163bhp but comes with just an automatic gear box.

The new Peugeot 3008 will be unveiled officially at the 2016 Paris motor show scheduled to take place in September 2016. Peugeot has high hopes that the new model will kick out popular competitors, such as the Nissan Qashqai, lets just hope the Peugeot 3008 Compact SUV is up to the task.
