This compact crossover was originally released in 2008. Its first appearance was in April same year, in Dubrovnik, Croatia. Original model is still in production and it made through only one bigger update, while most of the characteristics remain unchanged. According to the many reports that circulate on the internet, this popular crossover will be redesigned soon. Second generation is expected to come next year, probably as 2016 Peugeot 3008. We expect to see many changes in all aspects. New model should come with new platform, completely new look, and many other novelties.
2016 Peugeot 3008 redesign
French manufacturer is going to introduce new, redesigned model of this popular crossover. New model will come significantly changed. The 2016 Peugeot 3008 will continue in the same way when it is about base characteristics. On the other side, since current model became popular not only in Europe but also in countries like China, we expect that new 3008 will be more internationally-oriented, when it is about design. This refers not only to car’s appearance.
Beside new, rugged design, which will come adapted to the company’s new design language, we will also see changes in other aspects, in order to make this crossover suitable for non-European drivers too. This especially refers on car’s interior. The 2016 Peugeot 3008 will come with new cabin, which is called i-Cockpit by company’s managements. New cabin will be simplified in terms of styling and it will also come with higher quality of materials. Expect to see similar interior design as in new 308.
2016 Peugeot 3008 engine
When it is about engines, there will be no surprises for 2016 Peugeot 3008. It will continue with the proven petrol and diesel units. When it is about gasoline-powered variants, expect the same 1.6 liter I-4, which will come in few configurations. Same thing is expected with diesels. New Peugeot 3008 will come with proven 1.6 and 2.0 liter HDI units, which are currently available in several configurations in a range between 108 and 161 horsepower. However, we expect some improvements in terms of power, both for petrol and diesel engines. When it is about transmission, expect same 6-speed automatic and manual gearboxes.
2016 Peugeot 3008 release date and price
According to various reports, 2016 Peugeot 3008 is expected to come somewhere next year. However, more precise date is still unknown. When it is about price, predictions are that base model will go around 26.000 dollars.
