The PEUGEOT 3008 SUV's advanced i-Cockpit transforms driving

With its distinctive design, a wealth of in-car technology, and a versatile load space, the PEUGEOT 3008 is one of the rising stars of the fast-growing, family-friendly SUV sector.

We gave it a four-star review, singling out particular praise for its stylish high-quality interior, its comfortable ride and its large load capacity. It also impressed us as part of our long-term test fleet.

Now, the Fifth Gear team have got their hands on the PEUGEOT 3008 – and presenter Vicky Butler-Henderson was particularly taken with the advanced i-Cockpit®, which defines the 3008’s avant-garde interior.

i-Cockpit: a new way to drive

Perfectly complementing the plush materials, soft-touch fabrics, and the satin-chrome and high-gloss finishes that lend the PEUGEOT 3008’s interior a distinctly premium air, the high-tech i-Cockpit® has been designed to make driving easier and safer.

It blends a customisable 12.3-inch head-up digital display with an 8in touchscreen and PEUGEOT’s signature compact multi-function steering wheel, giving you clearer control over key features and how you see essential driving information.

The 12.3-inch display is mounted higher in the driver’s eye-line for improved visibility, and features a wide array of crisp, colourful graphic dials, navigation prompts and other driving information, which you can configure to your need.

The more compact steering wheel not only gives you a clearer view of the display and the road ahead, it also delivers improved feedback and more agile cornering in tight spaces such as car parks.

Wonderfully tactile satin-chrome aviation-inspired toggles under the 8-inch touchscreen offer quick and easy access to key features such as air-conditioning, while smartphone mirroring with voice commands provides even easier control of a wider range of apps and features for compatible devices, including navigation, music, podcasts, calls and texts.

i-Cockpit® Amplify offers even more ways to customise the interior ambience, using in-car mood lighting and specially developed scents to transform the mood to a more dynamic ‘Boost’ mode or the serene ‘Relax’.

More space to flex your life

The PEUGEOT 3008 SUV hasn’t only been designed to be comfortable, cosseting and easy to use up-front. Despite its compact external dimensions, the PEUGEOT 3008’s extended wheelbase delivers more space inside – especially for the rear passengers, who have more headroom, legroom and elbowroom.

The PEUGEOT 3008 is also more practical. Luggage capacity has been improved to 591-litres (VDA) with the rear seats up, and 1,670-litres (VDA) with the ‘Magic Flat’ rear seats down, while a fold-flat front passenger seat lets you carry items up to 3m in length.

A two-position boot floor can be used to store the removable parcel shelf or keep items securely hidden from view, while a hands-free tailgate helps make loading even easier. No wonder the PEUGEOT 3008 SUV has won 47 international awards. It’s a serious SUV with added style and technology.
