The Peugeot 3008 compact SUV slots neatly between the 308 hatch and the recently released Peugeot 4007 SUV, presenting an attractive package for those wanting a more unique alternative in the segment.
Each Peugeot dealership around Australia will have just one display model on hand to show customers, with the brand quick to point out demand has exceeded supply virtually from day one since the car was launched in Europe late last year.
Peugeot reports that sales of its 3008 compact SUV have exceeded targets by 30 per cent, spurred on by an array of fuel efficient, EURO 5 emissions compliant engines and advanced features such as Head Up Display.
The Peugeot 3008 features many innovations from the brand including Dynamic Roll Control which addresses the inherent high centre of gravity of SUV architecture by minimising body roll in corners.
An optional Grip Control function acts as an advanced traction control system which enables the 3008 to grip the road in all conditions by optimising the traction of both front wheels.
The Grip Control system features five modes - sealed road, snow, all terrain, sand and ESP-off - and also adds special 16-inch Mud and Snow tyres to enhance traction on challenging surfaces.
Expect a full report on the new Peugeot 3008 in the coming weeks as CarAdvice attends the local launch.
