“Customer response to our brand has been positive since we re-launched the company last  January 17, and we look forward to continue this momentum with each new PEUGEOT vehicle and showroom that we will introduce to the Philippine market,” he added.  

To continue this momentum, PEUGEOT Philippines added another SUV to its line-up with today’s launch of the New PEUGEOT 3008 SUV.

“We are thrilled to launch the New PEUGEOT 3008 SUV, which is our next step in the revitalization of the PEUGEOT line-up in the Philippines. This vehicle is a leader in the compact  SUV market with an outstanding commercial performance in Europe and internationally. We are confident that its success will carry on in the Philippines,” said Maricar Parco, PEUGEOT  Philippines Brand Head.

Elegant, stylish, and inspiring, the New PEUGEOT 3008 SUV embodies the best that PEUGEOT  has to offer in a 5-seater SUV. Its new design has all the style characteristics that give it more status and distinction while keeping a strong identity on the road.  

Inspired Design 

One step ahead in terms of style, the front end of the New PEUGEOT 3008 SUV has evolved towards a design that is as distinctive and unique as ever. A new frameless grille symbolizes the increasingly modern style, while maintaining a fluid design, and extends with fins under the headlamps to connect all of the elements. To emphasize the sportiness, shiny black side scoops and a painted tread plate have been included in the new bumper.  

The full LED front headlamps have been redesigned to be more aggressive with extended illuminated fang-like DRLs accented with a chrome tip. This light signature is perfectly in line with the current PEUGEOT style and is identifiable at first glance. At the rear, full LED lights display the 3D claws for a punchy light signature. Scrolling turn indicators light up sequentially for added visual clarity to pedestrians and other vehicles. The lights are covered with clear, smoked glass,  extending the black boot lid on each side of the vehicle, which helps to visually widen the rear of the vehicle. Completing the look are roof rails and 18-inch Los Angeles alloy wheels that add to the overall stylish appeal of the New PEUGEOT 3008.

Breath-taking Interiors, Refreshed PEUGEOT i-Cockpit® 

Inside, you’ll find that the New PEUGEOT 3008 elevates the experience of driving. Premium finishes, leather seats, a panoramic sunroof, a wireless mobile phone charging pad, USB  charging ports, and a spacious cabin that fits five adults in comfort all add to the allure and style of the New PEUGEOT 3008. 

PEUGEOT i-Cockpit®

An immersive driving experience awaits with the PEUGEOT i-Cockpit®, which has been enhanced with bigger screens, configurable displays, and a compact multifunction steering wheel for heightened response and improved agility. 

• The 12.3-inch digital head-up display, which is fully customizable and configurable,  features a digital panel with high-quality rendering for better readability and contrasts. 

• The new central infotainment touchscreen is 10-inches in size. The screen is high definition and comes with a series of elegant toggle switches that allow direct and permanent access to comfort functions such as radio, air conditioning, 3D connected navigation with voice command, vehicle settings, telephone, mobile applications, and hazard warning lights.

The New PEUGEOT 3008 includes all the latest generations of driving aids as part of its range of onboard technologies. Driver confidence is assured with a multitude of Advanced Driver  Assistance Systems including Active Blind Spot Detection, Active Lane Keep Assistance, and  Advanced Driver Attention Warning, making driving safer and ultimately, more enjoyable. 

Further, the New PEUGEOT 3008 has been upgraded with an anti-theft alarm, front parking sensors, and power liftgate with foot control for added security, safety, and convenience.
