The French automaker recently unveiled the second generation 3008 crossover, which also premieres the second generation i-cockpit technology – but more importantly marked the model’s transition to the crossover segment.
Now the carmaker is already evolving the model family by introducing the mildly hotter 3008 GT which has a performance-diesel flavor. At the bottom line of this new variant sits the turbodiesel 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine developing 180 horsepower (132 kilowatts), with the power sent to the asphalt via a six-speed automatic transmission. Because it has to live up to its GT credentials, the new 3008 flavor also comes with enhanced visual styling thanks to the more aggressive body work and larger 19-inch wheels that will remain exclusive to the GT.
Peugeot is also allowing the 3008 crossover to sport standard LED headlights and sequential indicators, with the visual tweaks also including a more dynamic front grille and a chequered chrome radiator grille. Among the exclusive details we also noticed the color, alongside two-tone roof and a bi-color body appearance. Modifications have also been operated in the cabin, where owners will find standard double topstitching and a tri-material TEP/ Alcantara trim. As an optional goodie there’s also a fancier Nappa Mistral leather setup. The 3008 GT also has a new copper color for the digital display that is again bespoke to this version. By the way, if you don’t really need the punchier diesel powertrain but still want the visual appeal, Peugeot got you covered via the “GT Line” trim. This one can be optioned from the list across the engine range, save for the 1.6L BlueHDi 100 S&S and the GT 2.0L BlueHDi 180 S&S.
