At the beginning of the next year, the audience will be presented with the second generation of the 3008, which will bring some very important changes. The new 2018 Peugeot 3008 will be a typical compact crossover. In recent years, the popularity of crossovers and SUVs is very high. Accordingly, the company has made a decision to change the purpose of their vehicle.
Competition in the compact crossover segment has recently been boosted by the launch of models such as Renault Kadjar, Nissan Qashqai, VW Tiguan, Kia Sportage or Hyundai Tucson. In view of such strong competition, the new model will have a very difficult task that will involve customer conquest. Namely, the previous model was intended for a different target group.
2018 Peugeot 3008 – Exterior Expectations and Luxurious Interior Design
The new 2018 3008 model will feature a characteristic lion that will be on the PSA’s mechanical platform. Compared to the previous model, it will be lighter by 100 kg. Also, the vehicle will be 8.5 cm longer than the previous model. As far as the width of the vehicle is concerned, it remained unchanged. The distance between the vehicle and the ground is 22 cm, which means that the new model is suitable for the terrain. Headlights and front grille resemble the 2008 model. Also, the new model will have a characteristic stop light that will have three parallel fields highlighted.
The interior of the Peugeot 3008 2018 is modernly designed. It is very well organised and comfortable. The new generation has focused all of its attention on the driver in designing the model. This means that the instrument panel is at a higher position than the instrument panel of the previous model. So, the driver will lower the view less because the new board is viewed from the top of the steering wheel. Instead of classic analogue instruments, the new SUV will have a 12.3-inch digital display. The volume of the rack is 520 litres, which is 90 litres more compared to the first generation of the 3008. With the backing of the rear seats, as much as 1.580 litres are obtained.
