Peu­geot has in­tro­duced a new Lim­ited edi­tion 1.2-litre Ac­tive 96 kw THP sixspeed man­ual de­riv­a­tive to its award­win­ning 3008 SUV range lo­cally. This model will be of­fered ex­clu­sively on the Peu­geot 3008 1,2-litre Ac­tive and will dis­play a “Lim­ited Edi­tion” badge. For R369,900, it is one of the most com­pet­i­tive SUVS in its seg­ment, ac­cord­ing to the au­tomaker. The 1.2-litre Ac­tive Lim­ited Edi­tion is spec­i­fied with 17-inch wheels, rear park­ing sen­sors, au­to­matic emer­gency brak­ing, and dual zone cli­mate con­trol. The i-cock­pit lay­out in­cludes a multi-func­tion steer­ing wheel and a 12,3-inch dig­i­tal in­stru­ment clus­ter. The eight-inch colour touch­screen dis­play with car con­nec­tiv­ity in the form of Ap­ple Carplay, An­droid Auto, and Blue­tooth al­lows you to use your smart­phone to get di­rec­tions on the move. The boot swal­lows 591 litres of lug­gage with the rear seats up and 1,670 litres with them folded flat.

The three-cylin­der en­gine de­liv­ers a lively 96 kw and max­i­mum torque of 230 Nm, giv­ing the Ac­tive a top speed of 188 km/h and good fuel econ­omy (5.5 l/100 km), while CO2 emis­sions are only 124 g/km. The en­gine is linked to a six-speed man­ual gear­box.

Stan­dard safety fea­tures in­clude six airbags, ABS with EBD, emer­gency brake as­sist, trac­tion con­trol, Dy­namic Sta­bil­ity Con­trol, and Elec­tronic Sta­bil­ity Pro­gramme. There is road sign de­tec­tion, driver at­ten­tion alert, lane de­par­ture warn­ing, driver at­ten­tion fa­tigue warn­ing, and ISOFIX child seat mounts. The lim­ited edi­tion can be re­served on­line at https://we­come­ lim­it­ed_3008_9087.html and a fi­nance op­tion with a long-term lease is also avail­able.
