One of the vehicles that best summarizes PEUGEOT’s innovative spirit has undergone a recent change in its style by adopting the brand’s new visual identity. LED daytime running lights, also used in the lantern in the form of “claws”, and equipment such as folding mirrors and a rear camera make the vehicle even more equipped atechnological. The vehicle that innovated its segment by combining different types of vehicles – the dynamism of the hatchback, the smart space of the minivan and the robustness of the sports utility – has recently received a new style, still more refined, modern and technological.In line with PEUGEOT’s new visual identity, the new 3008 had the redesigned front. The grille and foglamp, with a frame inspired by the latest concept cars of the Mark, are delineated by chrome pieces that appear to emerge from the body, emphasizing the sturdy domodelo. Adorned with two chrome fillets, the air intake reinforces the natural presence of the vehicle.The stylistic codes of PEUGEOT are also present in the new optical assembly, which features innovative cutting lines. The headlights are surrounded by a chrome area and daytime LED lights highlight the technological personality of the new 3008The Lion emblem follows the same line: no longer delimited by frame, dominates the front of the body surrounded by two creases, which suggest the continuous sensation of movement. The chrome touches on the top trim of the window, exterior rearview mirror covers, stringer and stainless steel fenders on the front and rear bumper demonstrate a high level of quality.The back keeps the winding lines of the set. The flashlight brings new LED lights in a dark tone marked by three “claws” that suggest a 3D effect. The Lion emblem, in the center of the trunk lid, now comes with the PEUGEOT logo below.
The new 3008, which also features 17-inch diamond wheels with unique design, enhances the crossover’s adventurous vocation: a sturdy, versatile, high driving position, exemplary dynamic behavior, guaranteed by the THP engine, combining comfort, space and technology of a familiar model. A combination of vocations that makes the vehicle uniquAn interior carefully in the smallest detaiInside, the new 3008 has an extremely cozy and comfortable environment, illuminated by the large glazed area of the model, which integrates 1.70 m² of the windshield. The huge panoramic glass roof, of 1.60 m², raises the total glazed surface to 5.34 m².The driver’s station, developed in the form of an “airplane cockpit”, was designed around the driver, who finds a panel of instruments of careful finishing, formed by dials with white numbers and red needles, under a black background.Quality materials provide an unquestionable qualitative insight, both visually and tactically, present, for example, in the textured panel coating and in the glossy and matt chrome details.Technological solutions: standard equipment makes everyday life easierThe modernity of the new 3008 is proven by its extensive list of standard equipment used to make it easier for everyday users• Head Up DisplaEssential driving information such as speed and throttle / speed limiter are designed on a polycarbonate translucent colored blade with antireflective treatment. It allows the driver to access them without having to take his eyes off the road. Besides the comfort of use, the system brings benefits in terms of safety· Parking Electric BrakeThis system benefits from driving comfort. From the moment of start-up, the parking brake is released automatically. When the engine is switched off, the brake also fires automatically.A processor, in connection with the ESP, manages the effort to immobilize the vehicle, depending on the slope. The handbrake remains on during wake-up time to readjust, if necessary, the tightening torque. The driver can, however, force this tightening while maintaining the latch control (towed weight, trucking, boat, among others).· Hill Assist – Ramp Start AssistThe model has a ramp start assist system with advantages for ease of use and safety enhancementThanks to the permanent connection with the ESP, this function allows the vehicle to stay on a slope for two seconds after taking the foot off the brake, which gives the driver sufficient time to accelerate again without the car moving back on the slope.
This system makes maneuvering safer and makes the vehicle easier to use, either forward (ramp start) or reverse (for example, to perform a parking maneuver on a falling ramp). The system operates on ramps with a minimum slope of 3%.· Intelligent Air ConditioninThe bi-zone digital automatic air-conditioning allows passengers to adjust the cabin air conditioning independently on both the left and right side of the vehicle. The climate of the environment can be done manually (with dust filter and pollen) or automatic. In this case, the Air Quality Sensor (AQS) function, connected to an air quality probe, automatically controls the closure of the recycling cap in case of detecting a change in the level of air pollution.· Multimedia WIP NAV RThe audio system with USBBox allows the connection of CD player with MP3 allied to the Bluetooth functions and “hands free” set for cell phone. You can also operate the devices connected to the auxiliary input, such as an iPod device. Add to that a GPS navigation system designed on an electrically folded seven-inch color screen.Engine 1.6 16V Turbo High Pressure of 165 HThe modernity of the design, which is at the heart of this crossover, is also present in its propulsor, which follows the international downsizing trend of engines, developing high performance and low levels of consumption and emission of pollutants. Equipped with 1.6 16V Turbo High Pressure engine, it is manufactured with aluminum block, extremely lightweight and developed in cooperation with BMW. Powered by a direct gasoline injection system , the 1,598 cm3 displacement engine and 16- valve compound head with variable inlet control and rotor-mounted rocker arms develops 165 hp at 6,000 rpm. With a maximum torque of 24.5 kgfm available at the 1,400 rpm mark, it gives the driver strength and safety in overtaking and speed pickups in urban journeys, for example. Coupled with this motorization, the vehicle has a six- speed automatic sequential box . Always working with the best engine speed, it allows a quick and smooth gearshift, contributing in large part to the great driving pleasure provided by the model.
Another important factor in the automatic box is that the torque converter used is also piloted, providing a safer traffic condition mainly in reductions. In this type of converter, an internal clutch effects the mechanical connection between the motor and the box, generating the “motor brake” effect. Thus, the driver has the same feeling as a car equipped with a mechanical gearbox: when the foot is removed from the accelerator pedal, the vehicle “brakes” the engine. Consequently, there is greater fuel economy, since the propellant, in these conditions, does not inject fuel to be burned, and also economy of brakes, because the driver uses an energy that was being wasted. A high level of securityThe new 3008 provides consumers with maximum safety at all levels. In structural terms, the vehicle was programmed to dissipate the energy of a collision in a programmed manner, receiving a triple frontal impact absorption structure. It is also worth mentioning that the steering column is deformable: in the face of a collision it retracts at a precise point to protect the driver. To better protect occupants from a side collision, column B is particularly reinforced. Columns B and C consist of two sheets of thick steel . In the same way, all the doors contribute in an effective way to make the model hard , creating a solid structure between the columns A, B and C.
Finally, the model, when subjected to the collision tests promoted by EuroNCAP, the European institute responsible for evaluating the safety of vehicles marketed in the continent, won the maximum score, five stars.
· Means of retention
The vehicle has six airbags with eight protection points, two front, two side (protecting the chest and the front passenger compartment) and two curtain-type airbags (for the front and rear passengers’ heads). back). The vehicle also features a number of safety features, such as the latest generation ABS brakes, ESP (Dynamic Stability Control), REF (Electronic Brake Distributor), AFU (Emergency Brake Assist) and ASR (Anti-Slip Assist). rear obstacle sensors.
There are also alarms, five safety belts with three attachment points, as well as audible warnings of closed / unsealed belts with visual information by means of pictograms:
1. In the front seats, the belts have pyrotechnic pretensioners (with a double pre-tensioning in the case of the passenger for better retention of the basin, besides the rib cage);
2. In the rear seats, the side belts are equipped with effort limiters;
3. Front head restraints in the form of a “wallet” and a comma-back for the three occupants.
Two Isofix child seat anchorages are available in the rear side seats .
A multipurpose vehicle
The passengers of the new 3008 have storage spaces that total about 50 liters of useful volume.
· A large volume refrigerated available in the center console under the armrest front, allows accommodate a bottle of 1.5 liters, CDs or other objects, thanks to its capacity of 13.5 liters;
· The glove compartment provides the passenger with a volume of four liters;
· An enclosed space below the steering wheel, integrating the Owner’s Manual, offers a volume of 3.7 liters;
· Two large rigid compartments on the doors with seven liters each;
· Two cupholders in the center console;
· An object retention net on the right side of the center console, available to the front passenger.
At the rear:
· Two lids give access to 3.8 liter spaces on the right and 3.3 liters on the left, under the feet of the rear passengers;
· Magazine rack behind the front seat backrests;
· Two rigid door pockets, each with 2.5 liters.
The interior of the vehicle also features:
· Three 12V sockets (in front of the center console, on the rear of the vehicle for passengers in the second row of seats and in the luggage compartment);
· Rear passengers benefit from a central armrest that gives access to the trunk.
In addition to the large number of storage compartments throughout the passenger compartment, the luggage compartment is easily accessible thanks to the partition of the lid in two parts, an upper one, the size of which allows for handling anywhere, and lower. This area serves to facilitate the loading of heavy objects, since it can support a weight of 200 kg distributed by its surface.
The luggage compartment of the model offers the possibility of being easily divided, thanks to a floor that can be modulated in three levels. Patented by the Mark, this system facilitates the use of the vehicle in the day to day.
Level 1: The movable floor, which can be removed from the vehicle if necessary, is positioned at the bottom of the luggage compartment to provide as much cargo space as possible.
Level 2: The floor is aligned with the lid open – 25% of the total volume of the luggage compartment becomes available below this floor and 75% between the floor and the ceiling. This position allows for a perfectly flat floor, from the cover to the dashboard, when the rear and front passenger’s rearrests are retracted.
Level 3: The movable floor is placed in alignment of the closed lid. The total volume of the luggage compartment is now 45% under this floor and 55% under the roof. In any of the last two positions, the driver may compartmentalize or hide, at his or her discretion, the objects that he places in the luggage compartment.
In addition to its movable floor, the new 3008’s luggage compartment is easily exploitable. It has a capacity of 512 liters and, with the rear seats folded, the capacity of the luggage compartment reaches the volume of 1,604 liters.
