These are the first official pictures of the new Peugeot 3008 crossover, which was revealed by Peugeot today.
The new Peugeot 3008, first seen as a concept at last September's Paris show and snapped in production form by our spy photographers last November, is aimed squarely the Nissan Qashqai, although it will only be available as a five-seater, unlike the Nissan.
The Peugeot 3008 is based on the same front-wheel-drive platform that underpins the Peugeot 308 and Citroen C4. The 3008 will offer a range of 1.6-litre and 2.0-litre, four-cylinder turbodiesels, and two 1.6-litre petrol engines: a naturally aspirated 120bhp VTi and the turbocharged 150bhp THP150.
Depending on the engine, 3008 customers get the choice of a five or six-speed manual, a six-speed automatic and Peugeot-Citroen's six-speed automated manual gearbox. At the top of the range there is a new 163bhp version of Peugeot's 2.0-litre HDi engine.
The 3008 is also significant as it will become Peugeot's first production hybrid model. The technology, labelled Hybrid 4 by Peugeot, allows a four-wheel-drive option for the 3008 as the hybrid's electric motor drives the rear wheels.
