Herald Sun - Motoring - - THE INSIDE LINE -

The most im­por­tant new Peu­geot in sev­eral years is about to land Down Un­der. Sales of the French brand have tanked in re­cent years and the newly ap­pointed dis­trib­u­tor Inch­cape will be look­ing to the new 3008 SUV to turn things around. The em­pha­sis is on de­sign and qual­ity but the 3008 comes only with front-wheel drive and the start­ing price for a 1.6-litre petrol turbo with six-speed auto is $39,990 drive-away). That is well above the ask­ing price of Ja­panese and Korean ri­vals. You can get an auto ver­sion of the best-sell­ing Mazda CX-5 for about $34,500 on the road. The flag­ship 3008 GT auto with all the bells and whis­tles will cost more than $50,000 drive­away.
