Longford Leader Motoring: It's here - Peugeot's fastest and record-breaking seller

The eagerly awaited, multi-award winning new Peugeot 3008 is now on sale in Ireland.

The first vehicles will arrive in dealer showrooms this month.

Featuring the latest-generation Peugeot iCockpit with digital instrumentation as standard, the all-new 3008 SUV is a sophisticated and stylish vehicle that combines efficiency and high-levels of safety and technological equipment.

The range starts from €25,995 (ex-works) for the entry level Access 1.2 130bhp PureTech petrol version.

There is a wide range of petrol and diesel engines.

The 1.2-litre PureTech 130bhp turbo petrol engine, with CO2 emissions from just 117g/km, was voted International Engine of the Year in its category for the second-year running, earlier in 2016.
