The Peugeot 3008 is a compact crossover unveiled by French automaker Peugeot in May 2008, and presented for the first time to the public in Dubrovnik, Croatia. It was launched in April 2009.[1]

Despite having had its styling criticized, the 3008 has been praised by automobile magazines. In January 2010, the British motoring magazine What Car? awarded it Car of the Year for 2010. It also was awarded 2010 Semperit Irish Car of the Year in Ireland.

In 2016, Peugeot unveiled the new 3008, with the car being available as of January 2017. The car is due to be a new milestone for Peugeot, in its quest to become the highest selling range of vehicles in the industry. In November 2016, the new 3008 was awarded overall CarBuyer "Car of the Year" 2017, as well as winning best in the category of SUVs.[2]

In March 2017, the new 3008 won European Car Of The Year 2017, by a jury of 58 motoring journalists from twenty two European countries. The award came the same day that the PSA Group announced a $2.3 billion deal to buy GM’s Opel division. Opel’s Astra won the Car of the Year in 2016, reacted with these two awards within two years, the Peugeot Group CEO Jean-Philippe Imparato said, “This is an alliance of winners.”[3]

Head up Display[edit]

The Exclusive and 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[1] and is the world's first mass production diesel-electric hybrid.[7]

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.[8]

A second generation 3008 was announced by Peugeot in May 2016, and was first presented to the public at the Paris Motor Show in September 2016. Its design allows the vehicle to come into contention with large competitors in the C segment SUV market, which has been a prominent market in the past years.

It features Peugeot's new i-Cockpit, which is an improved design compared to the current i-Cockpit featured in the Peugeot 208, Peugeot 2008 and Peugeot 308. Features include a 8 inch touch screen to the centre console, a 12.3 inch customisable heads-up display, and the small style steering wheel, which has become standard in all current Peugeot models.

Production started in 2016, with sales starting in January 2017. 100,000 orders were made in Europe between October 2016 and March 2017, half of them were made by people who did not own a Peugeot.[12]
