New Peugeot 3008 arrives
Now an SUV crossover rather than the MPV in its first generation, the car is a striking addition to a very crowded segment, which include Kia's Sportage, Ford's Kuga, Toyota's RAV4, Hyundai's Tucson and several more.
The entry engine is a 130hp turbocharged petrol as well as a 1.6 petrol with automatic transmission.
Diesels are 1.6 and 2.0 in output ranges from 100hp-180hp versions, and automatic gearboxes are available.
Peugeot Ireland expects that the bulk of sales will be in the Allure grade, which has prices ranging from €29,855-€33,605.
A first drive report will follow tomorrow.
