New Peugeot 3008 goes on sale in Ireland

The eagerly awaited, multi-award winning new Peugeot 3008 is now on sale in Ireland, with first vehicles arriving in Peugeot Dealer showrooms this March

Featuring the latest-generation Peugeot iCockpit with digital instrumentation as standard across the range, the all-new Peugeot 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 plus delivery related charges for the entry level model, the Access 1.2 130bhp PureTech petrol version.

Des Cannon, Managing Director at Gowan Distributors Limited, Peugeot Importers in Ireland said, “A huge sales success in Europe already and with 17 international awards under its belt, demand for the new Peugeot 3008 is outstripping supply in every country where it has already been launched.

"Over 100,000 units have now been ordered in just 4 months, breaking records for the company. Furthermore, the brand’s objective of moving upmarket is now clearly coming into fruition, with 86% of sales to date attributed to level three Allure, level four GT Line and the range-topping GT trims. Together with the new Peugeot 5008 SUV, arriving this summer, we now look forward to increasing our performance in the all-important C-SUV segment.”

With a choice of five trim levels, to include Access, Active, Allure, GT Line and GT versions, a wide range of both petrol and diesel engines is available.

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. This engine is available with a 6-speed manual gearbox or with Peugeot’s latest generation EAT6 6-speed automatic transmission. The 1.6 THP petrol 165bhp EAT6 6-speed automatic has emissions from 129g/CO2.

Four BlueHDi diesel engines are available, trim dependent, with CO2 emissions from 103g/km, and power ranging between 100, 120, 150 and 180bhp. The 2.0 litre BlueHDi 150bhp version is matched to a 6-speed manual gearbox, whilst the 1.6 BlueHDi 120bhp version is available with a choice of a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed EAT6 automatic gearbox. The range-topping GT version comes equipped as standard with a refined 2.0 litre BlueHDi diesel 180bhp 6-speed automatic.
