The new Peugeot 3008 burst onto the SUV scene offering a number of sleek features across their different variants. Taking a little step out from the rest of the crowd in the medium-sized SUV crowd, the Peugeot 3008 provides a stylishly designed car that offers a broad appeal. There’s a reason that the Peugeot 3008 is still one of the most popular models in the Peugeot roster. Currently, the 3008 SUV has four different variants in trim, namely being the Active, Allure, GT Line, and GT.
This blog is your guide to breaking down the differences between these models, helping you to find the ideal match for your lifestyle.
Difference between Peugeot 3008 Active and Allure
Starting with the standard base model, the Peugeot 3008 Active is stacked with a huge number of features that can also be found in the other model variants. Some of these incredible features include:
- Rear View Mirror with Auto-Dimming
- Dual Zone Climate Control
- Driver Sport Pack
- Sat Nav
- 8-inch infotainment mirror screen
- Compatibility for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto
- Lane Change Warnings
- Leather Steering Wheel
- 17-inch alloy wheels
Now if you’re keen to make the step up to the Allure variant, you’ll be faced with several more features that give it that little added edge. The Allure model also has a reverse camera with 360-degree functionality, parking assist for reverse and parallel parking, active blind-spot detection, and the added 18-inch alloy wheels. The usual cloth trim of the standard Active model can also be replaced by a ‘Claudia’ leather seat trim for $2500, giving you some extra sophistication in the interior design.
Advanced Safety Pack
You also have the ability to add on an advanced safety pack, which is completely optional based on your budget and safety concerns. If you are someone who’s looking for a safer driving experience, the active cruise control featuring a stopping function, lane-keeping assist, and emergency braking in the advanced safety pack is worth every cent of the $1500 price tag.
If you’re someone that’s wanting a more technologically advanced model, the 3008 model is probably more up your alley with its electric folding door mirrors with a handy dipping function when you are reversing.
Difference between Peugeot 3008 Allure and GT Line
Taking another jump up from the 3008 Allure variant and you have the 3008 GT Line model, offering a more sporty and high-end experience with a price point to match. In addition to the standard base features, the GT Line has full LED headlights and foglights. The GT Line variant also has 19-inch alloy wheels providing a little bit of a beefier look, that fill out the wheel wells nicely. You also have access to the optional advanced safety pack of the Allure model as a standard in the GT Line.
Much like the Allure having the option to replace the cloth trim, the GT Line has an optional Nappa leather seating trim, which has a massage function on the driver’s side seat. For those looking for more of a high-level sporty driving experience, the sleek addition of the sports front bumper and grille is a perfect little bonus on the GT Line.
If you value comfort and convenience when you’re behind the wheel, the GT Line is definitely your choice for the Peugeot 3008, featuring a choice of two interior ambiances. It also has the optional panoramic glass sunroof opening, giving you the chance to bask in some of the nice sunshine and natural light that we’re lucky to receive in Perth.
Top Tier – Peugeot 3008 GT
Right up at the top of the line for the Peugeot 3008 sits the 2.0L diesel engine of the GT variant. Being that it is the only diesel engine of the different variants, it does offer a far better fuel economy than the usual petrol engine. The GT has a 133kW Blue HDi turbo-diesel engine, through an eight-speed automatic, giving you a little extra oomph on the roads. This makes it perfect for those looking for a more cost-effective car to whip around the city on a regular basis.
Being the ultimate in the comfort of all the models, the GT has heated front seats and an electrically adjustable driver seat with a 2 position memory system. The 2 position memory is ideal if you’re sharing this car with a partner or family member as it makes the swap in transition smooth and simple. You also have a massage function in the driver seat, making your driving experience more comfortable and relaxing.
The additional features that the Allure, GT Line and GT variants offer can make all the difference in suiting your specific needs. If you’re wanting an affordable and high-quality driving experience, the 3008 Active model does give you that extra level of desirability that gives it a broad appeal for all sorts of different drivers.
The GT Line and GT variants are perfect for those looking to add a sporty, clean, and totally enhanced car to add to their arsenal. Take a look at our Peugeot 3008 review for a more comprehensive breakdown of the car and some of its more notable features and benefits.
