Gallery: Peugeot to unveil 3008 and 5008 SUVs at Paris Motor Show


Peugeot will continue the transformation of its crossover line-up into a more rugged range of SUVs with the unveiling of its new 3008 and 5008 models at the Paris Motor Show.

The new vehicles will be showcased alongside a new GT Line specification for the recently updated 2008 and the official launch of the latest generation of i-Cockpit digital instrumentation.

Motor sports fans will also get a glimpse of the 3008 DKR race car ahead of its 2017 Dakar campaign.

Peugeot’s new 3008 enters the SUV sector’s C-segment with a range which includes sporty GT and GT Line versions.

Produced in Sochaux, France, the new model will be launched around the world following the Paris Motor Show and on-sale in the UK from January 2017.

The seven-seater 5008 SUV features a second row of seats which are entirely independent, identical, adjustable and foldable, while Peugeot said that  the third row are foldable and easy to remove to optimise a record 780-litres of boot space.

Built in Rennes, France, the new D-Segment SUV is set to go on sale in the UK in spring 2017.

Peugeot’s new i-Cockpit features on both cars and the new 2008 GT Line.

A compact steering wheel and head-up instrumentation remain central to the system which now utilises a customisable 12.3-inch, high-resolution digital screen with contemporary graphics.

A large eight-inch touch screen brings together comfort controls with the screen neatly located in the centre of the dashboard, meanwhile.

Peugeot said that the all-new 3008 SUV also adds further interior enhancements, with two “sensory environments” on offer – Boost for energetic driving, and Relax for a calmer experience.
