Order books open for updated Peugeot 3008 and 5008
Peugeot’s updated 3008 and 5008 SUVs are now on sale, introducing smarter styling, new trims, more technology and extra safety features.
The upgraded models, which include plug-in hybrids in the 3008, were revealed a month ago and the carmaker has now announced pricing and specifications.
Both models arrive in UK showrooms early next year, with the new 3008 SUV priced from £27,160-£47,430 and the new seven-seat 5008 SUV priced from £29,585-£40,905.
Updates to the smaller 3008 SUV bring enhanced specification, a refreshed trim structure, a choice of advanced powertrains and a new Black Pack.
The new trim structure covers five levels including Active, Allure and GT. Each are complemented by an intermediate level called ‘Premium’, although the UK line-up doesn’t kick in till Active Premium. Equipment on the entry-level Active Premium include 17-inch alloy wheels, Safety Pack, Visibility Pack, keyless start, dual zone air-conditioning, front and rear parking aid, Mirror Screen and electrically folding mirrors.
Buyers can also choose a new ‘Black Pack’, available on the top-of-the-range GT and GT Premium models, including 19-inch bespoke black alloys and roof rails.
A range of driver safety features are on offer and include Night Vision, which allows drivers to view pedestrians and animals on the 12.3-inch digital instrument panel up to 200m beyond the scope of the headlights.
Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop and Go is available on models with eight-speed automatic transmission and includes lane Positioning Assist. And latest-generation automatic emergency braking can detect both pedestrians and cyclists at night at speeds from 3mph to 86mph.
Engine line-up carries over the Hybrid4 300 e-EAT8 which uses a 200hp PureTech petrol engine and two electric motors, giving a combined power output of 300hp, fuel consumption up to 235mpg, emissions of 29g/km CO2 and up to 40 miles of zero-emissions range. It’s the only 3008 model available with 4WD.
The 3008 Hybrid 225 e-EAT8 features a 180hp PureTech petrol unit combined with a single 110hp electric motor for a combined 225hp power output, providing 31g/km of CO2, fuel consumption of up to 222mpg and a zero-emission range of 39 miles.
Both feature a 13.2kWh lithium-ion battery and come with two types of on-board chargers. A 3.7kW single-phase on board charger is included as standard, with a full charge taking three hours and 45 minutes, while an optional 7.4kW on board charger is also available. A full charge using a 7.4kW Wall Box will take one hour and 45 minutes.
The line-up also includes a 130hp 1.2-litre PureTech petrol with a six-speed manual or eight-speed automatic and a 180hp 1.6-litre PureTech with an eight-speed automatic. The diesel range comprises a 130hp 1.5-litre BlueHDi with the same choice of transmissions.
As with the 3008, the 5008 gets a range of exterior updates which, along with revised equipment levels, are intended to position it more upmarket. The new trim structure also echoes the 3008’s. Entry equipment includes 17-inch alloys, Safety Pack, visibility pack, push button start, dual zone air-conditioning, front and rear parking aid, third-row seating, Mirror Screen and electrically folding door mirrors
As with the 3008, two petrols are offered: the 130hp 1.2-litre PureTech petrol with six-speed manual and eight-speed automatic, and a 180hp 1.6-litre PureTech solely with eight-speed auto. Diesels cover the 130hp 1.5-litre BlueHDi with six-speed manual or eight-speed automatic and a 180hp 2.0-litre BlueHDi purely with the eight-speed auto.
