Named European Car of the Year in 2017, the bold and elegant new Peugeot 3008 SUV is one of the most desirable SUVs on the road today. 

The Peugeot boasts of a 1.6-litre turbo engine that finds the right balance between performance and fuel efficiency. It is equipped with top-of-the-range safety features and innovative technology to keep you safe and connected while on the road. And who can look past the elegant design? There are so many reasons why you should be considering the Peugeot 3008 as your next car.

Peugeot Advanced Grip Control 

One of the stand out optional features for the Peugeot 3008 SUV is Advanced Grip Control. Available on the Allure, GT line and GT variants, Advanced Grip Control allows drivers to switch between driving modes to maximise traction in low-grip terrains. 

The system acts on the front wheels, adjusting the grip and torque according to terrain. Being a front wheel system allows the Peugeot 3008 SUV to avoid the heaviness associated with a four wheel drive system. 

Advanced Grip Control offers five driving modes: standard, snow, mud, sand and ESP off. Along with specialised tyres, these driving modes enable the Peugeot 3008 SUV to adapt to a broad range of terrains and weather conditions. 

Standard mode – for a typical grip to suit normal road surfaces.

Snow mode – optimised to get the best traction when the car is pulling away. Snow mode adjusts as speed increases to allow optimum acceleration.

Off-road mode – best for coping with mud, dirt tracks and wet grass, this mode allows the least stable wheel to have a high level of slip, while increasing torque for the most stable wheel. When pulling away, this will remove excess mud or grass and improve overall grip. As the car increases in speed, the system adjusts accordingly.

Sand mode – helps prevent the car from getting stuck by allowing a slight slip on both front wheels at the same time.

ESP off mode – disconnects Electronic Stability Control (ESP) and Grip Control to give the driver full control. Standard mode kicks in again when the car exceeds 50km/h.

Is Peugeot grip control any good?

For a two-wheel-drive car, Grip Control significantly increases the places you can go with the Peugeot 3008. For Perth drivers, Grip Control is advantageous for gravel roads and sandy terrains, giving you the flexibility to go more places. 

Compared to a 4X4, the Peugeot 3008 has significantly less emissions and is far more fuel efficient.Paired with specialised ‘all weather’ tyres, Hill Assistant Descent Control and an excellent towing and carrying capacity, the Peugeot 3008 is a great choice for outdoor and adventurous activities, no matter the terrain or weather.

If you’re in the market for a two-wheel-drive car that can also perform well in low-grip terrains, the Peugeot 3008 SUV is hard to look past.
