2013-2017 Peugeot 3008
The Peugeot brand used to have its time a decade ago or so, especially with the Lee family (Nissan-UMC, Hyundai fame) bringing these stylish hatchbacks to the Philippine market. While unique to the buyers palette, their prices aren’t friendly plus given the fact Europeans may mean a luxury car through Germany or UK for something whose size will be similar to a Honda Jazz made them a huge failure through day one. Adding MPVs in addition to also also vans in which were priced more didn’t help either, plus given the fact the economy isn’t in which vibrant at the time of arrival, they had no choice although to pull out with upbeat sales later on for the industry as a whole.
First introduced to the European market in 2008, the 3008 (do not be confused, my friend) got nothing although praises through various automotive publications in addition to also also award giving bodies despite the fact its outdoor design was criticized. Although the 4007 was the first SUV through the French brand, This particular one was the first SUV to be developed through the ground up with the former being a rebadged Mitsubishi Outlander. So successful, This particular vehicle continued to be sold for eight years straight in multiple markets around the earth.
Under the helm of Columbian Autocar Corporation (Kia, BMW, Mahindra), the Peugeot brand had a comeback with the 3008 being the first four products to be brought in. Three products were available paired to two engines were first made available through November 2012 until an update three years later reduced to one style – the expensive top of the line. The Active style will be the base while the Allure has more fancy features added.
Value in addition to also also Costs
For the cost of a brand fresh Mirage G4 or a second hand PPV (think Montero Sport or Fortuner), you can have a pre-loved 3008 crossover for as low as P700,000 with late releases going for P1,000,000 having the remainder of the warranty. Not much adjustments occurred during its run, which will be a not bad thing, so focus on the condition more than the year style.
European brands could usually have maintenance costs in which are higher than the Japanese so if you are the kuripot type, This particular will be not the vehicle for you. There are available specialist parts for French cars in addition to also also fuel consumption will be not bad, since This particular vehicle will be a diesel powered one. Problem points due to This particular vehicle mostly involve the electrical components although there are some transmission in addition to also also aircon niggles. although if there will be one thing to be careful of, This particular will be the diesel injectors given the fact the engine will be of advanced state.
outdoor in addition to also also Indoor
As mentioned earlier, the outdoor design will be a center of criticism especially in which the grille will be huge than its original size in addition to also also you may mistaken This particular one for an oversized hatchback with Centeng cladding, This particular will be tuned for city driving than taking This particular off-road. All products contain a panoramic sun roof in addition to also also daytime running lights as standard equipment. For hauling stuff at the back, the split gate can fold down for help.
Inside, the Indoor will be flexible enough which shames several competitors in addition to also also This particular folds flat, a feat. Going to persons, This particular can fit a few persons in comfort in addition to also also stylish manner while the driver gets a commanding view of the road thanks to an excellent outward visibility. Control design will be a mixed bag, some are not bad while some are not in addition to also also the Insentif heads-up display will be a help. Cubbyholes in addition to also also storage boxes of various sizes come standard.
With the local Peugeot distributor pushing with diesels, the 3008 has two oil burners throughout selling life. Lower products sold through 2013 to 2015 have a 1.6 diesel which gets 112hp at 3,600rpm in addition to also also 285Nm at 1,700rpm paired to a semi-automatic transmission. Higher end products gain a 2.0 diesel utilizing 163hp at 3,750rpm in addition to also also 340Nm at 2,000rpm in which will be matched to a conventional automatic. The semi-automatics could be a complicated combo although you could get used to This particular later on when you get the hang of This particular while the automatics are a fine partner. Both engines are fine although we suggest to get the lesser one since This particular will give you a slight advantage on fuel consumption. Another great feature will be This particular style gets a unique diesel particulate filter which removes harmful particles for zero emissions in addition to also also a start-stop system.
Riding on a platform which will be also shared with PSA Group passenger cars, expect car-like handling which performs with grace even on curved roads. Comfort-wise, you wouldn’t go wrong with This particular vehicle.
This particular seemed the current Peugeot distributor got the right product when This particular was first made available in addition to also also priced accordingly. Later products were messed up since the top end will be retained which has a jacked up cost, although at second hand prices This particular will be a steal already.
The not bad:
- Lots of space
- Comfortable to ride in
- Not in which engaging to drive
- Somewhat expensive to maintain
- Some products are basic for the brand fresh cost
