Peugeot upgrades 3008 crossover
Sport versions of the What Car? Car of the Year gain Peugeot Connect USB (allowing an MP3-player to be connected to the car), as well as Bluetooth, a flat-folding front passenger seat, and automatic headlamps and wipers.
Exclusive models also get these items, but also add electric folding mirrors, an electro-chrome interior mirror and exterior courtesy lights.
Prices for Sport models now start a £17,895, while the cheapest Exclusive model is £19,295 – both have the 1.6 VTi 120 engine and represent a £200 rise compared with the previous models.
At the same time, Peugeot has also introduced a new HDi 112 engine that meets Euro V emissions regulations. Available with Active, Sport and Exclusive trims, it replaces the old Euro IV-compliant engine, bringing improved economy and a reduction in CO2 emissions.
Paired with a manual gearbox, it emits 135g/km, while it puts out 129g/km when mated to Peugeot’s semi-automatic EGC gearbox – down from 140- and 135g/km, respectively, with old engine.
The revised models are on sale now.
