Peugeot Goes Official With 3008 Advanced i-Cockpit

Several days ago, leaked images with the dashboard layout of the upcoming 3008 revealed a futuristic design and now Peugeot has decided to shed some light in this chapter by unveiling the next-gen i-Cockpit.

With its futuristic appearance and new technology, the Peugeot i-Cockpit takes advantage of a fully customizable digital instrument cluster with a 12.3-inch high-res screen positioned in the driver’s line of sight to display critical info.

Sitting on top of the dashboard is a new tablet-like 8-inch touchscreen, in the center of the instrument panel, which is part of the infotainment system with new interactive technology and increased responsiveness. Both information screens will display 3D navigation system, with real-time traffic info from Tom Tom Traffic, and occupants will have voice recognition and commands at their disposal. There is also automatic text message management reading, drafting and sending messages hands-free, along with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and MirrorLink compatibility for the center screen.

Fresh tech and features are set in a new center console, which has been redesigned using better materials. Another extra touch is the seat-massage function and Peugeot also mentions “two atmospheric settings“, both completely customizable, offered at no extra cost: “Boost” for dynamic driving and “Relax” for a calmer driving experience.

The first Peugeot vehicle expected to adopt the second generation Peugeot i-Cockpit is the new 3008, which could debut at the 2016 Paris Motor Show, in early October and arrive at dealerships by the end of the year.

    Very interesting; I just hope they won’t over-promise and under-deliver.
    The current touchscreen tablets that are implemented in lots of models from Peugeot and Citroen have been over marketed as high-tech additions but are impractical, sluggish, poorly defined and buggy

  • PlonPlon

    Am impressed! Really love the futuristic design and the “audace”! Hope it pays!

  • TheHake

    I still hate that steering wheel/cockpit dials combination. In the 308 I can’t see anything on the instrumentation.

      Maybe start shopping elsewhere. I’ve driven all current generation Platform 1 and EMP2 Peugeot vehicles and I can confirm you are talking rubbish.

      • TheHake

        How the HELL can YOU say I’m talking rubbish when I cannot see the dials????? Maybe you’re a little pipsqueek that like a steering wheel in your lap. I’m not.

        • uS’gedlemba

          I just said it, based on my experience and those of other’s whove actually driven the car your are talking rubbish. Are you telling me with all options available you can’t use your brain hard enough to find the right position? The steering is adjustable and so are the seats.

          • TheHake

            There is NO way for me to sit comfortably in this idiotic design and still see the dials.

      • Vassilis

        If you sit in any way that resembles a correct, sporty position you can’t indeed see the dials.

        • TheHake

          Indeed. Thanks. You have to sit like an old lady to see the dials.

  • Zimny Pawel

    Futuristic and very elegant..,Chapeau Peugeot !!

  • Astonman

    I’m loving this interior the more I see it. Looks like it should belong in a sports car
