SPORTY AND ASSERTIVE EXTERIOR DESIGN
The exterior design of the new PEUGEOT 3008 SUV exudes cleanliness, modernity, and distinctiveness, embracing the traditional SUV characteristics while radiating expressive charm.
From the front view, an exclusive sporty grille, surrounded by a bi-aspect ‘Sanded Chrome’ (other versions in chrome), proudly encases the Brand’s lion logo at the center of a chequered chrome radiator grille.
The exclusive bumper design adds prominence, complemented by more efficient full LED headlights that reduce driver eye fatigue. The elegant profile is accentuated by the stainless-steel rear quarter light and window trim finisher, along with the stainless-steel trim along the roof to the rear spoiler, framing the glazed surfaces with streamlined elegance. The proportions provide a lower and more dynamic look compared to its competitors. GT Line models boast 18” ‘Detroit’ matt Haria alloy wheels, enhancing the sporting theme.
LED welcome lighting in the door mirror shells projects the Brand’s lion logo onto the floor, showcasing the designers’ meticulous attention to detail.
At the rear, the ‘GT Line’ or ‘GT’ badging, along with double chrome exhaust pipes on either side of the bumper, seamlessly integrate to convey chic and elegant sportiness.
For increased individuality, the ‘Coupe Franche’ dual-color paint design, a distinctive PEUGEOT signature reserved for GT and GT Line versions, takes the new PEUGEOT 3008 SUV into a realm of distinctiveness and exceptionality. Paired with Nera Black paint at the rear, customers can choose from three different paint colors.
In addition to GT Line models, GT versions feature widened wheel arches, 19″ ‘Boston’ alloy wheels, slender streamlined aluminum roof bars, chrome door mirror shells, and copper GT monogram badging on the front wings. GT models offer added convenience with a smart electric-operated tailgate featuring a foot-movement operation system, allowing hands-free operation when carrying items.
