Peugeot South Africa has introduced its updated 3008 to the market. Here's the pricing and specification details for this stylish newcomer.
The Peugeot 3008 has been a popular model globally with impressive sales performance, particularly in the European market. A few have been sold in South Africa and it bagged a few #CarsAwards-powered by WesBank nominations.
For the 2021 model which has been facelifted, Peugeot has tweaked the design, introduced the latest-gen driving assistants, and given its cabin a revised look. Visually, you can spot the new model with its striking new grille, with the GT model gaining an enhanced version of this grille. The headlights have been updated too and these now include LED technology as well as hook-shaped Daytime Running Lights with chrome tips.
The flagship GT model gets full LED headlamps which turn as the vehicle changes direction at speeds of up to 90 kph. There's even a fog mode built into the headlamps. The rear of the vehicle features LED tail lamps and sequential indicators. The Peugeot 3008 GT model features 19-inch aluminium alloys.
For the South African market, there are new colours to choose from and customers have 7 shades to choose from. Inside, the updated Peugeot 3008 features a new central touchscreen which is 10-inches in size. The 12.3-inch digital dashboard has been tweaked to provide better readability and contrasts. There are new trim levels, with customers being able to opt for red Nappa leather over the standard black Nappa leather. There are also new trim finishes.
There's just one engine available across the 3 derivative range. The 1.6-litre turbocharged 4-cylinder petrol motor punches out 121 kW and 240 Nm. There's just one gearbox on offer, a 6-speed automatic transmission. Peugeot claims a 0-100 kph of just 8.9 seconds and it's said to consume just 7 L/100 km on the combined cycle.
