The 308, 2008 and 3008 have hit the scene with a bold new look

PEUGEOT has been charging ahead with a flurry of new models. Cars like the 308, 2008 and 3008 have hit the scene with a bold new look and a fresh new approach, but Peugeot has also shaken up the specifications that accompany many of these vehicles.

So let’s take a quick look at how PEUGEOT’s trim levels for these new and updated cars work.

3008 and 5008

PEUGEOT recently announced that it would be changing the way the specifications for the 3008 and 5008 work. So now, Active Premium+ and Allure Premium+ replace previously available Active Premium and Allure Premium specifications. The old entry-level Allure trim has been removed entirely, too.

Active Premium+ cars have had a number of upgrades in the process, including a new ‘Aluminium Pack’ which trims a variety of areas in the bright material. For instance, the door sills and pedals are now finished in the material. Other additions for the 3008 include 18-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels and aluminium roof rails.

One of the biggest changes to the 3008 is that a hybrid powertrain is now available on the Active Premium+ specification, which brings this fuel-saving model’s price down. Hybrid cars also get a 10-inch touchscreen, driver’s seat manual lumbar adjustment and frameless rear view mirror.

Both 3008 and 5008 are only available with an eight-speed automatic transmission, following growing customer demand for auto gearboxes.

PEUGEOT also introduced a series of trim changes for its smaller 2008 and electric e-2008. The existing Active Premium trim now becomes Active Premium+. Which adds gloss black roof rails, dark tinted rear windows and a new gloss black strip at the rear of the car.

Allure Premium becomes Allure Premium+ and these models get aluminium-finished pedals as standard, as well as 3D navigation with real-time updates. This specification also adds a three-year connected navigation pack which includes speed camera alerts and real-time traffic information. Plus, you get European mapping, 3D city data and voice recognition technology, all of which were only available on GT trim levels and above previously.

PEUGEOT’s popular 208 hatchback has also had its specifications revised, bringing more equipment as standard in the process. As we’ve seen with other cars in the range, Active Premium+ and Allure Premium+ replace the existing Active Premium and Allure Premium grades. They get more equipment as part of the move, yet there’s no additional cost.

Entry-level Active Premium+ models now have dark tinted rear and side windows, alongside automatic wipers and air conditioning.

Step up to Allure Premium+ and the 208 benefits from that aforementioned aluminium pack, which applies the materials to areas like the pedals and door sills. Inside, there’s a new seven-inch colour touchscreen, which houses media and navigation functions. Plus, you still get Peugeot’s i-Cockpit system which uses a compact steering wheel and a digital instrument panel ahead of the driver.
