Launched three years ago, the Peugeot nameplate has gained quite a substantial following. Most of its fans quote its competitive running costs, classy interior, large trunk, and affordable sticker as some of the reasons why it makes a great buy. As of February, half a million units had already been sold globally. Not everything was a bed of roses for the Peugeot 2008. Its so-so ride quality, and odd looks made it receive a fair share of criticism. All these flaws have however been fixed by Peugeot, at least according to their announcement.

2017 Peugeot 3008 Release Date, Review and Specs

The much-awaited 2017 Peugeot 3008 has finally unveiled and its release date set for early 2017. It aims to take its class by storm thanks to the many changes and updates it sports ranging from its high-tech equipment and its optimized architectural efficiency to its exceptionally inspired design.

Nowadays, many brands are now turning their focus to SUVs due to the versatility, interior room, and superior of-road capabilities they offer. In Europe alone, SUV sales have more than tripled in the last seven years. And for 2017, just like many brands offering vehicles in the European C-segment – the largest and most diverse, the French marque hopes the 3008 will make a cut in the largely competitive arena.

See, the SUV is a true reflection of the modern automobile’s incarnation: personal pleasure, creator of emotions, technological, and stately. It shows desire to venture into new experiences and escapism, where others are unable to. Well, while most brands have been able to create such kind of an SUV, few have managed to deliver an incredibly modern, consistent, intelligent, and sleek package. The new 2017 Peugeot 3008 is perhaps one among the plethora of options that has managed to seamlessly integrate such features into one package, thereby positioning itself as an imminently desirable product consistent with the modern era of sophistication and capability.

The 2017 Peugeot 3008 GT styling distinguishes itself from the rest of the offerings with its chrome door mirror caps, aluminum roof bars, nineteen-inch alloy wheels, and wider wheel-arches. The GT Line, on the other hand, comes equipped with twin chrome exhaust, and eighteen-inch wheels. Other standard features available for both models include an automatic tailgate, and full-LED headlights.

Although details are yet to be offered, it is highly speculated that it’ll take around 9 seconds for a 0-60 mph. GT Line models, on the other hand, will be offered with several petrol and diesel engines and a choice of automatic and manual gearboxes.

Rivals for the Peugeot include Kia Sportage, Renault Kadjar, and Nissan Qashqai. With over 25,000 models sold as at 2016, and a new model on the horizons, the Kia Sportage remains one rival that the Peugeot 3008 wouldn’t want to upset. Although seeming gawky in pictures, Kia’s design elements have come to mature over time, and now features beautifully-sculpted design cues that make it stand out among the rest. It’ll be interesting to see how the two face off in terms of sales figures. But if you ask me, I’d put my money on the 2017 Peugeot 3008 in a heartbeat!
