The eagerly awaited new Peugeot 3008 is now available to order, with first vehicles due to arrive in dealership showrooms across Ireland by early February 2017.
Featuring the latest-generation Peugeot iCockpit with digital instrumentation as standard across the range, the 3008 SUV is said to be a sophisticated and stylish vehicle that combines efficiency and high-levels of safety and technological equipment.
The range starts from €25,995 plus delivery related charges for the entry level model, the Access 1.2 130bhp PureTech petrol version.
With a choice of five trim levels, to include Access, Active, Allure, GT Line and GT versions, a wide range of both petrol and diesel engines is available. The 1.2-litre PureTech 130bhp turbo petrol engine, with CO2 emissions from just 117g/km, was voted International Engine of the Year in its category for the second-year running, earlier in 2016. This engine is available with a 6-speed manual gearbox or with Peugeot’s latest generation EAT6 6-speed automatic transmission. The 1.6 THP petrol 165bhp BVA automatic has emissions from 129g/CO2.
Four BlueHDi diesel engines are available, trim dependent, with CO2 emissions from 103g/km, and power ranging between 100, 120, 150 and 180bhp. The 2.0 litre BlueHDi 150bhp version is matched to a 6-speed manual gearbox, whilst the 1.6 BlueHDi 120bhp version is available with a choice of a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed EAT6 automatic gearbox. The range-topping GT version comes equipped as standard with a refined 2.0 litre BlueHDi diesel 180bhp 6-speed automatic.
