Peugeot 3008 refreshed


At a press launch this morning we were shown the revised Peugeot 3008.

The multi award winning SUV has been given the usual tweaks you’d expect with a couple of twists. The front end gets a new grille and light treatment, there are new wheel options and at the rear the ‘lion’s claw’ tail lights are revised and both front and rear daytime running lights are now always on. A new ‘Black’ version uses black paint to contrast with the car’s chosen exterior colour – and it looks very sharp.

Inside the cabin there is an enlarged 10 inch centre screen and a new driver’s display at the heart of the I-Cockpit set up. Level 2 autonomous driving is available and for the first time Peugeot’s ‘night vision’ will display what is in the shadows on the drivers display at night.

So overall not too much of an exterior jump from the current much loved car that has sold over 800,000 examples since 2016 – but enough to keep the 3008 to the forefront in its class. The car arrives in Ireland for the start of 2021 (no indicative pricing as yet)
