The peugeot 3008, a crossover thanks its unique driving sensations and intelligent off-road traction

Thanks to Peugeot's expertise and use of new technology, the Peugeot 3008 offers road holding qualities worthy of the best saloon cars, no mean feat for a "spacious and tall" vehicle. Every effort has been made to ensure class leading levels of road holding on all versions of the Peugeot 3008, without in any way sacrificing passenger comfort. Indeed the Peugeot 3008 will become the new benchmark in the world of spacious, compact vehicles in terms of driving pleasure and active safety.

It achieves this through its excellent body rigidity, large wheels and suspension comprising of a McPherson type front suspension and a rear suspension consisting of a rear torsion beam.

Combined with two of the most efficient engines (the 1.6 litre THP and the new 2.0 litre HDi FAP), the Dynamic Roll Control system, fitted to the rear suspension, sets new standards in terms of body roll control while still retaining optimal damping characteristics.

Another innovation is the Grip Control system. Consisting of an advanced traction control system and special Mud & Snow tyres, it optimises the traction of both front wheels of the Peugeot 3008 for real off-road driving. The driver controls the system by means of a knob with five settings: Standard, Snow, Off Road (Mud/Dirt/Wet Grass), Sand and ESP off.
