Fol­low­ing a change of dis­trib­u­tor in New Zealand, Peu­geot has re­leased the new 3008 SUV lo­cally. For the lat­est in­car­na­tion the 3008 has trans­formed from a slightly awk­ward crossover into a far more hand­some tra­di­tional SUV style and will be avail­able in New Zealand in a choice of three mod­els. The $39,990 Ac­tive is pow­ered by a 121kw/240nm 1.6-litre petrol en­gine that Peu­geot claim a com­bined fuel con­sump­tion of 7.0L/100km from. The Ac­tive comes stan­dard with 17inch al­loys, a 12.3-inch cus­tomis­able dash dis­play, dual zone cli­mate con­trol, au­to­matic lights and wipers, an 8-inch touch­screen in­fo­tain­ment sys­tem in­clud­ing 3D satel­lite nav­i­ga­tion, Ap­ple Carplay and An­droid Auto, LED day­time run­ning lights, speed limit sign recog­ni­tion, lane de­par­ture warn­ing, trailer sta­bil­ity con­trol, a re­vers­ing cam­era and front and rear park­ing sen­sors. The mid-grade Al­lure is $44,990 pow­ered by the 1.6 petrol or $46,990 with the 88kw/300nm 1.6-litre diesel that boasts a claimed com­bined con­sump­tion fig­ure of 4.4L/100km. The Al­lure spec adds 18-inch di­a­mond fin­ish al­loys, stain­less steel door sill pro­tec­tors, pri­vacy glass, metal­lic grey bumper ac­cents, key­less ac­cess and start, am­bi­ent cabin light­ing, a wire­less charg­ing pad, a fold-down pas­sen­ger seat, auto high beam as­sist, a driver at­ten­tion alert sys­tem, ac­tive lane de­par­ture warn­ing and blind spot de­tec­tion. Al­lure mod­els also fea­ture Peu­geot’s Ad­vanced Grip Con­trol, an en­hanced trac­tion con­trol sys­tem that op­ti­mises grip on snow, mud and sand, as well as hill des­cent con­trol. Top­ping the range is the GT at $54,990. The GT is pow­ered by a 133kw/400nm 2.0-litre diesel turbo en­gine, with a claimed com­bined con­sump­tion fig­ure of 4.8L/100km, and gains 19-inch al­loys, chrome plated mir­ror caps, wider wheel arches, Al­can­tara trim in­clud­ing dash de­tail­ing, a pow­ered tail­gate with a hands free open­ing func­tion, LED head­lights with a cor­ner­ing func­tion, adap­tive cruise con­trol, for­ward col­li­sion warn­ing with au­ton­o­mous emer­gency brak­ing, a 360-de­gree cam­era and an 8-way elec­tric driver’s seat with mem­ory, a 5 mode mas­sage func­tion and heat­ing. A Safety Pack is avail­able for the Al­lure ($1750) adding the 360-de­gree cam­era, ac­tive cruise and emer­gency brak­ing func­tion. All vari­ants come equipped with a sixspeed au­to­matic trans­mis­sion. The ver­sa­tile five-seat in­te­rior fea­tures 520 litres of lug­gage space, and a 2/3-1/3 split-fold­ing “Magic Flat” rear seat that folds eas­ily to pro­duce a flat load-floor. Mod­els with the fold-flat front pas­sen­ger seat pro­vide a three me­tre long load space. The Peu­geot 3008 is on sale now and is backed by a three year/150,000km Peu­geot Ve­hi­cle War­ranty with three years Peu­geot Road­side As­sis­tance.
