HDi FAP[edit]

Introduced on the Peugeot 607 in 2000 in a world debut, the particles filter is a system that has become a worldwide standard. It has been gradually applied to most Peugeot HDi diesel engines. The HDi FAP engine provides the driver with many advantages. The HDi engine reduces fuel consumption. HDi is more economical than previous diesel engines and facilitates more complete combustion. Thanks to the Common Rail system’s injection at very high pressure (up to 1,800 bar), the constant and well distributed, very fine atomisation of the diesel fuel facilitates a more even and complete combustion, thereby providing better performance.

Consumption comparison of an HDi engine and a classic diesel engine: 206 1.6 litre HDi 70 hp, manual 5-speed gearbox: mixed consumption: 4.3l / 113g 206 1.9 litre D 70 hp (previous generation), manual 5-speed gearbox: mixed consumption: 5.5l / 144g Variation: 1.2l at 100 km, which is a stand-alone difference of over 200 km for a 50-litre tank.

Head Up Display[edit]

The 3008 Exclusive & Allure models have a Head Up Display, which projects a reading onto a small perspex like screen just in front of the main windscreen area in front of the driver. It also contains a distance alert, which warns the driver if they are too close to the car in front. It also displays details for Cruise Control or the Speed Limiter.

Hybrid version[edit]

The Peugeot 3008 HYbrid4 was launched in February 2012[3] and is the world's first mass production diesel-electric hybrid.[5]

The crossover hybrid has four different operating modes: Auto (the electronics automatically control the entire system), ZEV (all-electric), four-wheel drive mode (4WD) and sport (higher engine speeds than normal mode). A 200v nickel-metal hydride (Ni-MH) battery pack is located in the rear.[6]
