2009 Peugeot 3008 Crossover Scooped Completely Undisguised

When we first saw Peugeot’s Prologue concept car at the Paris Auto Show in October we knew that the compact crossover was practically production ready. Apparently it was so good to go that Peugeot doesn’t even care about covering the actual production model that was spotted by a reader of the Dutch car magazine Autoweek without a single trace of camouflage. Minus a few rings and bells like the absence of the aluminum exterior trim and the unadorned alloy wheels, the production model doesn’t vary from the concept car we saw in Paris.

Peugeot 3008 Crossover  The compact crossover that will most probably be called 3008 (supposedly) combines features and elements from both SUV and minivan (MPV) vehicles. The new model will face competition in Europe from the likes of the Citroen C4 Picasso and the quite successful Nissan Qashqai.

Since it’s based on the underpinnings of the Peugeot 308, expect to see naturally aspirated and turbocharged variants of the PSA – BMW Group co-developed 1.6-liter petrol engine as well as a wide range of HDi diesel powerplants when the vehicle goes on sale in Europe in the second half o 2009.
