Peugeot 3008 is the best-selling model of the Peugeot brand in Vietnam.
With a strong design for exciting driving experience, 3008 is considered a model that gathers all the best things of a perfect crossover vehicle. Now let go into details of those wonderful features.
Distinctive French design
French people are known as the elegant ones, who have impressed the whole world with their culture, fashion and architecture signatures. That applies to a French car and Peugeot 3008 is a typical example.
The car is designed with bold and creative details. The big front grille and many outer frames such as those for the doors, windows and lights are gilded with the luxurious chrome.
The luggage bars on the car rooftop makes it look more sporty. The rear-view mirrors are incorporated with the turning lights. Peugeot 3008 has a distinctive lighting arrangement, with LED daytime running lights and rear LEDs providing an added safety feature. The front fog lights give extra visibility in difficult driving conditions, and automatic headlights are also available.
All seats in the car are high-class leather. The two seats and the extra seat at the back can be adjusted and folded for more space.
The leather wheel is gilded with chrome at the joints that also function as sound control buttons. The innovative Head-Up Display projects all essential driver information including vehicle speed and speed limiter at eye level. The driver can even add distance alert information.
Other comfortable features include Bluetooth, the Arkamys digital sound processing system that helps deliver crystal clear sound, a 7-inch touch screen that can show map and DVD content and can be connected to USB devices.
The car also has anti-glare rearview mirrors and drivers can activate the auto locking system in case of emergency. The automatic dual-zone air conditioning system allows the driver to have more cool air while the passengers enjoy more warmth – or vice versa.
Strong and exciting operation
Peugeot 3008 uses 1.6 Turbo auto 6 speed which boasts a high level of torque of 240Nm/1.400-4.000rpm including in lower gears and a maximum capacity of 156 Hp/6.000rpm.
The engine enables speed of up to 205 kilometers per hour, lowering fuel consumption to an average of 6.8 liters per 100 kilometers and reduce CO2 emissions to Euro 5 emission standards.
The three driving modes – Normal, Sport, Snow – give the driver more control of his/her car. The Sport mode is a perfect choice for those who want some excitement during the journey. Once the mode is on, the system will make impacts on the engine and the gearbox to make the car run like a real sport car, with longer switch between gears, quicker speeding up and more noises.
On slippery road, one can turn on the Snow mode for safety.
The electronic stability program (ESP) is another outstanding feature that comes with the Grip Control function. Grip Control is an advanced traction control system which allows the new 3008 to grip the road in all conditions by optimizing the traction of both front wheels. Five modes are available: standard, snow, all terrain, sand and ESP.
Peugeot 3008 guarantees safe travel with six air bags, child safety lock, a rear-view camera for safer and easier parking, the anti-lock braking system (ABS), emergency brake assist (EBA), hill assist control (HAC), the anti-slip regulation system, cruise control and speed limiter.
The smart Stop/Start system also helps optimize fuel use.
With the amazing price of VND1.1 billion (US$49,350) after discounts, Peugeot 3008 is an ideal car for successful people who love to add a European luxury car to their dynamic lifestyle.
