Spy Video Teases 2017 Peugeot 3008
As we’re waiting for the official presentation of the 2017 Peugeot 3008, we may have to content ourselves with a spy video released on video sharing platform YouTube. There is not much to see, but better this than nothing, right?
The video shows the production-ready Peugeot 3008 passing by in a fleeting moment of ecstasy for those waiting for its final release. The low-resolution video didn’t reveal anything in terms of how the car would look like up front, but it did give us a clear glimpse of how attractive this is from the back.
First, let’s talk a bit about the front. It has a considerably different façade from the other cars churned out by the brand. It features an aggressively styled grille with the company’s lion badge at the center. On the side, it has slim headlights on the wide front bumper finished with the silver faux bash plate.
Because of such features, experts are pointing out to the possibility that the new 3008 might be taking after the recently previewed Peugeot Quartz concept, shown at the 2014 Paris motor show.
The short and blurry video also teased us with a brief shot of the car’s sides—the wheels’ arches and side skirts are clad in black plastic. This gives the 3008 a more SUV-like appearance. Topping the sides aesthetics are new alloy wheels filling the wheel arches.
The video might not be able to show the car’s interior, but it should have a futuristic cockpit as previewed by Peugeot’s i-Cockpit last month. This features a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster and an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment display.
Previous reports said the new 3008 would be revealed at the Paris motor show this coming September, but it looks like we might see this sooner than that. France’s Automobile Magazine is reporting it will be revealed on May 23.
