Video footage reveals the production-ready second generation Peugeot 3008, a couple of weeks ahead of its official presentation.
Although it’s short and very pixilated, the film, posted by YouTuber FaridTeir, shows significant upgrades over the tweaked version presented by Peugeot in Beijing last month such as the large trapezoidal grille, with the Lion badge taking center stage, slender headlights and a larger silver add-on applied to the lower part of the front bumper.
While the upcoming 3008’s exterior design was kept a secret until now, its futuristic interior design was previewed by the firm’s next-gen i-Cockpit a few weeks ago, with a 12.3-inch fully customizable digital instrument cluster and an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment.
Underneath its more crossover-like body, you’ll find PSA’s EMP2 platform, shared with the 308, meaning that the second-gen 3008 will probably get a similar set of 3- and 4-cylinder petrol and diesel engines. Power is expected to be sent to the front-wheel drive on base versions, while more expensive models will benefit from all-wheel drive.
An exact reveal date has yet to be announced, but France’s Automobile Magazine reports that Peugeot will lift the veils off the new 3008 in ten days time.
