The next-generation Peugeot 3008 has surfaced in a YouTube video ahead of its official presentation.
In a very short and very blurry video, a production-ready 3008 is shown in a brief passing-by shot.
While the low-resolution video doesn’t reveal much other than the new front end, significant changes to the 3008’s look are clear.
A considerably different face is worn by the new car, featuring an aggressively styled grille with the company’s lion badge taking centre stage, flanked by slim headlights atop a wide front bumper with a silver faux bash plate.
As the camera passes, a brief shot of the sides show black plastic cladding on the wheel arches and side skirts, giving the 3008 a more SUV-like appearance. New alloy wheels fill the wheel arches.
While the video doesn’t show any of the interior, the 3008’s futuristic cockpit design was previewed by Peugeot’s i-Cockpit last month, which featured a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster and a 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment display.
Spy photos of the upcoming 3008 have also surfaced over the last year, which point to a more SUV-styled aesthetic over the current car’s MPV-like design.
While previous reports suggested the new 3008 would likely be revealed at the Paris motor show this September, France’s Automobile Magazine reports that Peugeot will lift the wraps off the new 3008 in the next fortnight.
