A Brief 2018 Peugeot 3008 Active Review
The Peugeot 3008 SUV has brought a real touch of European styling class the Aussie SUV scene. The well designed new Peugeot 3008 Active certainly brings something new to the table, and it’s an intriguing alternative to some of the mundane competition. Let’s take a closer look at what it has to offer so that you can make a more informed purchasing decision.
At a Glance
The Peugeot 3008 medium SUV has a design ethos that could easily be described as striking. However, it’s not overly fussy, and the lines are deceptively simple. The cabin has bags of room, and it’s replete with high quality materials for a luxurious high end feel. Peugeot has added plenty of safety tech to keep you safe on the road. Some drivers may find that accessing so much via the infotainment screen is a distraction until they get used to it.
In the Cabin
Stepping into the cabin, you’re going to become quickly familiar with the iCockpit 2.0 system. Essentially, this is a tiny steering wheel paired with a digital instrumentation panel. Most of the normal physical controls, button, and dials that you may be used to, have ...
... been removed. Instead, these functions have been folded into the centrally mounted touch screen except for a few vital shortcut keys. The Peugeot 3008 Active is the entry level model in the range, but it certainly doesn’t feel or look like a base model. Everything is built to an extremely high standard, and it has a real premium feel.
Under the Bonnet
The Peugeot 3008 Active SUV has a 1.6L turbocharged petrol engine that generates 121 kW of power at 6,000rpm and 240 Nm of torque at 1,400 rpm. This is paired with a six speed automatic gearbox that is extremely intuitive at any speed. The power output may seem pedestrian, but that’s not the whole story. The 3008 has a kerb weight of only 1,371kg, which is extremely trim by modern SUV standards. This low weight plus the super responsive automatic gearbox makes the 3008 Active very nimble and agile out on the road.
The Peugeot 3008 Active is certainly not the cheapest SUV on offer in Australia today, but that’s not the role it’s filling. Peugeot is playing a value game, and this vehicle certainly offers a lot of kit for the money. There is plenty of equipment fitted as standard, such as: six airbags, speed limit recognition, AEB, an electric parking brake, dual zone climate control, a 12.3” digital driving display, an 8” touchscreen display, front and rear parking sensors, lane departure warning, rear seat air vents, a leather steering wheel and automatic lights and windscreen wipers. If you go up to the next model even more kit is added.
