With travel being restricted due to the current pandemic and many places in lockdown, Western Australians are lucky enough to be able to travel freely within this great state. As a result, many West Aussies have been taking this opportunity to visit or discover some of the many beautiful and diverse places this vast land has to offer.
For example there is so much to see and do up north in Western Australia – from rugged ranges, pristine beaches and coastlines and lush forests – and the Peugeot 3008 SUV is the perfect vehicle to take you there. From the Pinnacles at Cervantes to the heritage-listed Ningaloo Reef make your way up Indian Ocean Drive and the Coral Coast Highway in style and comfort.
With its modern and dynamic exterior design, stainless steel roof arch trim, chrome wing inserts, and a distinctive radiator grille and head and tail lights, the Peugeot 3008 commands an imposing presence on the highway.
Your road trip up north will undoubtedly see you spending a lot of time on the road in between stops. Stay connected and entertained with the 8-inch colour touchscreen infotainment system that, in conjunction with a row of satin chrome toggle switches, allows you to access each of the car’s functions with ease. This includes such functions as the radio, dual zone climate control and 3D Satellite Navigation. You can also integrate your smartphone by connecting via Bluetooth, or Apple CarPlay/Android Auto/Mirrorlink, and keep your phone fully charged with the wireless charging pad.
The plush, luxurious interior of the Peugeot 3008 cabin also makes it a pleasure to drive, with a leather trimmed steering wheel, striking chrome detailing and soft touch material. And with the optional massage function for the driver seat, you may even find yourself making excuses to stay in the car just that bit longer.
Going on any road trip means you will need to bring enough gear to get you there and back. The Peugeot 3008 SUV boasts a flexible interior layout for easy accessibility and adjustment, with a minimum boot capacity of 591 litres. You can transform this capacity to a whopping 1670 litres with the back seats folded flat.
Keeping focused and alert on long drives can be challenging, but active driver assist systems such as Advance driver attention alert, Lane departure warning system and Advanced Autonomous Emergency Braking are there to help make sure you reach your destination safely.
Sometimes the best spots are more secluded and harder to get to. The Peugeot 3008’s Advanced Grip Control allows you to adjust your driving mode depending on the terrain, and together with its Hill Assist Descent Control, will give you the capability to tackle many off-road situations with relative ease.
All this is powered by a reliable 121kW 1.6 litre THP turbo petrol engine with the new EAT6 (Efficient Automatic Transmission 6-Speed) gearbox, offering impressive acceleration, reduced CO2 emissions and low fuel consumption at 5.3L per 100kms on the highway.
For those looking for more power, the 133kW BlueHDi S&S turbo diesel engine, delivering 400Nm of torque, is available exclusively with the GT variant and delivers a more powerful performance while using less fuel at 4.6L per 100kms on the highway.
