New Peugeot 3008 Scooped: More Crossover, Less MPV

Our spies caught Peugeot testing the successor of the 3008 testing, heavily camouflaged, in Sweden.

The French company is planning to replace the existing 3008 with a more crossover-like model.

Despite the camo of the prototype, we can see that the new Peugeot 3008 will follow the smooth lines of the 308.

Most of its powertrains, too, will be shared with the compact hatch, meaning a range of three- and four-cylinder turbocharged petrol and diesels like the petrol PureTech 1.2 and the 1.6 HDi.

The vast majority of the new crossover’s range will be offered as a FWD only, with Peugeot probably adding an AWD plug-in hybrid later on.

The new Peugeot 3008 is expected to debut its home turf, at the Paris Motor Show in October – unless, that is, Peugeot throws in a surprise and displays it in Geneva.
