Peugeot Reinvents 3008 MPV as SUV

The Peugeot 3008 MPV has been reinvented as a small SUV to rival the Nissan Qashqai earlier marketed in Iran and is set to make its debut at the Paris Motor Show in September. Don't get too excited though, as there has been no announcement about the vehicle's Iran entry.
The raised ride height, upright nose, long hood, body cladding and roof bars all give the new 3008 a more utilitarian look. But the wide grille, LED lights, sculpted bonnet and floating roofline add a dose of style, too—a huge stride from the previous multi-purpose vehicle-like design, especially thanks to the large 18-inch wheels, Auto Express writes.
The car uses a new i-Cockpit that features a smaller steering wheel for quick, precise response, a head-up instrument panel to keep the driver's eyes focused on the road ahead and a touchscreen with interior controls.
The dash and center console wrap around the driver and the small steering wheel and high-set display mean it’s easier to see the dials from the driver’s seat.
The 12.3-inch high-res screen can be configured how you like, with sat-nav maps, media info or conventional dials.
This system complements an eight-inch touchscreen in the middle of the dash with some sleek-looking vents and "piano key" switches to control the infotainment system’s important features.
The engine range includes gasoline and diesel with a choice of power outputs. There are no hybrid or electric models from launch but a plug-in hybrid version of the 3008 will arrive in 2019.
Keen to emphasize its SUV capabilities, Peugeot has fitted the 3008 with Grip Control to tackle snow, mud and sand, as well as offroad tires and hill descent control.
