Peugeot’s 3008 will get a much needed new look, based on this teaser image that has been released by Focal, the French audio brand supplying the infotainment system for the high-end variant in the new range.
The teaser shot appeared on Focal’s Facebook page and was subsequently picked up by French automotive site, theautomobilist.fr and international site Motor1.com. It’s believed that the 3008 will be officially revealed by Peugeot tonight, our time.
We’ve already seen the alleged cabin of the new 3008, and it’s an evolution of the brand’s i-Cockpit dashboard design. It’s more cockpit-like than ever, with a deeply carved out centre console and a row of toggle switches for the aircraft feel. Unlike earlier designs in the 208 and 308, the central screen has moved up a tier to the instrument cluster’s level.
A large silver skid plate can be seen at the front, while the profile view showcases large flared guards, a tall beltline and a ‘floating roof’ above the glasshouse.
Specifics on the powertrains will differ from market to market, however, Peugeot confirms a 1.2-litre PureTech producing 96kW, and a 1.6-litre developing 121kW. There’s also a string of diesel options, ranging from 74kW to 132kW, from 1.6 to 2.0 litres in capacity.
Peugeot Australia says the new model will go on sale locally in 2017. Final specs and prices will be announced closer to launch.
