2009 Peugeot 3008

at the crossroads between several vehicles: the SUV, the MPV and hatchback, the crossover represents a new and innovative not only in the Peugeot range but in today’s car market as a whole.

The of the 3008 successfully combines a body shape with a front windscreen with borrowed from the world of the such as its lower tailgate (or its plunging side windows and its driving position.

At the front, the styling genes have to adapt to the car’s generous while at the rear the wide flanks help to visually the car to the road.

The 3008 will be with a choice of six power featuring two petrol engines and two HDi FAP engines with output 110 and 156 hp. All the engine are coupled to either a manual gearbox or a 5-speed one.

Through its non-conformist and its resolute styling, the 3008, as a pioneering vehicle, offers an solution and optimal versatility to in search of modernity, practicality, of mind and driving pleasure. versatile and status-enhancing, the Peugeot a crossover in all respects, opens up new horizons.

The architecture of the 3008 combines a single-compartment body with a forward-positioned front with elements borrowed the world

of the SUV, such as its tailgate (or hobby), its plunging windows and its raised driving

The vehicle’s style achieves a fusion of these different Its balanced proportions and dynamic and lines provide an indication of the innovative content. At the front, the styling genes have to adapt to the car’s generous while at the rear the wide fl anks help to visually the car to the road.

Depending on the trim the vehicle can have off-road elements, in particular inserts for the and lower panels.

Inside its interior, the driver occupies an and particularly luxurious driving that calls to mind the of the luxury coupé and has some to the cockpit of an aircraft.

Passengers can a generous and extremely comfortable compartment (in terms of design, acoustics, etc), where occupant will feel at ease.

For even greater brightness and visibility, they can t from a large glass measuring 1.60 m2.

Its Multifl ex can be converted at will thanks to its load area floor and rear seats. With the folded, together with the passenger backrest, the 3008 a perfectly fl at fl oor from the lower hobby to the fascia panel. Its volume under the parcel then increases from 512 (or 432 dm3 in the VDA standard) to 1,604 (or 1,241 dm3 behind the front seats.

To add to the and safety of all its occupants, the driver can t, as standard or as an option, from that is rarely if ever in this market segment: Up Display, Distance Alert the driver to respect a safe between the vehicle in front to speed), automatic electric brake,

Thanks to Peugeot’s expertise and use of new the 3008 offers road qualities worthy of the best cars, no mean feat for a and tall’’ vehicle.

Every has been made to ensure leading levels of road on all versions of the 3008, without in any way cing passenger comfort. the 3008 will become the new in the world of spacious, compact in terms of driving pleasure and safety.

It achieves this its excellent body rigidity, wheels and suspension comprising of a type front suspension and a suspension consisting of a rear beam. Combined with two of the effi cient engines 1.6 litre THP and the new 2.0 litre HDi FAP), the Roll Control system, fi to the rear suspension, sets new in terms of body roll while still retaining damping characteristics.

Another is the Grip Control system. of an advanced traction control and special Mud Snow tyres, it the traction of both front of the 3008 for real off-road The driver controls the system by of a knob with fi ve settings: Snow, Off Road (Mud/Dirt/Wet Sand and ESP off.


At an early of the project, the search for optimal effi ciency was a major especially as the vehicle was a crossover.

attention was paid to the car’s (Cx of only 0.296), weight (lightweight materials, laser etc) and Michelin tyres a low rolling resistance (derived the 308) are fi tted to most

At the heart of the 3008’s eco-effi its six power trains feature the advanced technologies in the market both for petrol (with the 1.6 VTi and THP engines developed in co-operation the BMW Group) and diesel versions and new 2.0 litre HDi fi tted with a particulate emission fi lter). consumption on the most eco-friendly is therefore reduced to only 4.9 km or 130 g/km of CO2.

Finally, 2011, the 3008 will be the fi rst in the PSA Peugeot Citroën Group to from HYbrid4 technology, as on the Prologue HYbrid4 concept car at the Paris Motor Show. technology, representing a real in terms of fuel consumption and CO2 (in the order of a 35% reduction), it also four wheel drive to front wheel drive by the HDi FAP diesel engine and rear drive provided by an electric The latter also allows an electric’’ drive mode, with zero emissions.

Exhibited at the recent Paris Show, the Prologue HYbrid4 car illustrated an approach initiated years previously.

Indeed years earlier, as part of a review and as preparation for the replacement of the 307 and its body shapes, the Marque looking at new concepts that stand out in the very large vehicle market.

When down guidelines for a project if the latter is envisaged as a new offering a range intended to win sales in new segments), one essential step is to to and understand the expectations of potential and then take risks by resolute choices.

The ‘‘aspirational’’

After conducting polls and the results of customer surveys, it became clear that were real aspirations on the of some buyers for cars did not fall into existing such as hatchbacks and MPVs.

The SUV segment, conveying an image of leisure and escape, was perceived by to be too remote from their routines and unsympathetic to their environmental concerns. Sport-loving and modern families, senior and active young people a potential customer base profi le had not truly been ed. This profi le represents the for a vehicle that is at once status-enhancing and personal, delivering driving pleasure and able to to different roles, regardless of or lifestyle.

These users in short, to a vehicle that not yet exist, a car offering a new synthesis of values.

The search for a new synthesis of values

This observation an idea shared by the company’s the future of the motor car inevitably the hybridisation of concepts, assisted by innovation. In fact, Peugeot have often proved highly creative when it to creating new body shapes. the creativity of stylists and engineers has given rise to strong, and distinctive concepts in the Peugeot offering multiple benefi ts in of motoring enjoyment and day-to-day

Examples include the forward-positioned windscreen (from the 206), the CC body style, the SW (intelligence and brightness in the world of the estate), or the 307 and 308 hatchbacks with a semi-tall

Avery precise and innovative cation was then established for the which acquired the in-house name of ‘‘T84’’.

The aim with the T84 was fi to create a spacious vehicle an original, dynamic solution ensures maximum versatility.

It also offer a unique of driveability, safety, potential for and leisure pursuits, while at the time showing respect for the

Finally, it would be attractive to customers in search of modernity ‘‘early-adopters’’) and users looking for a car would simply make day-to-day lives easier.

To do the T84 had to successfully incorporate a number of from different spectrums of the world, and derive maximum ts from each:

The forward-positioned windscreen, interior space, driving position and intelligent modularity are all benefi ts derived the MPV segment.

A luxurious interior for the driver, an ideal driving and road holding of the highest are important features of the world of the that would be taken on

Elements of style which adventure and functional attributes daily life easier as a split tailgate, a commanding position and innovative technology to the off-road capability, are ingredients of the SUV essential to the desired concept.

modern and original technologies been developed in order to the comfort and safety of all users. the T84 project, more than any within the company, had to reduce its footprint to a minimum, through aerodynamics, weight optimisation, the use of low resistance tyres and the adoption, of a hybrid technology currently developed by the PSA Peugeot Citroën the HYbrid4. The T84 project was therefore to become a synthesis of several body shapes.

Representing an original new concept in the of ‘‘spacious’’ vehicles, it is positioned as a of a new kind.

Due to its positioning, it was perfectly that the T84 project should be

Basic engineering

The Peugeot 3008 is a compact, and responsible crossover. It represents a new and offer, not only in the Peugeot but also in today’s car market

as a Manufactured in Eastern France at the manufacturing plant, its concept and cation has draw on all of Peugeot’s and values.

The 3008 is positioned at the between several existing the SUV, the MPV and hatchback. The car derives its from this blend of concepts while at the same a number of new and original technologies Roll Control, Grip etc) enabling it to combine cations often deemed (driving pleasure inside a vehicle, improved traction at the same time being etc).

Solid and innovative

The T84 project is based on platform 2 of the PSA Citroën Group. This continually updated and optimised, from exceptional rigidity and

provides the best possible for mechanical assemblies and the suspension, but ensures excellent acoustic and properties. In this instance the wheelbase’’ platform 2 was used, the as the 308 hatchback, as it is able to meet the objectives in terms of the car’s and stylistic proportions.


The structure of the 3008 was carefully to ensure not only maximum safety, but also and herein the diffi culty with a and tall vehicle a rigidity of a saloon, in order to get the very from the suspension, enhance safety and guarantee the driving on which the company prides

Other parameters which also considered at the same were, reducing the car’s the integration of a glass roof and the of facilitating this for the stylists

the 3008 benefi ts from the extensive experience and know-how section on ‘‘Safety’’) but also innovations, both in the design of of its components and in terms of industrial processes.

Laser welding

The of laser welding is used for and metalwork during assembly of the body. This process of welding in a continuous bead as to tack welding. It is applied to the frames and in particular parts of the structure. In addition to guaranteeing body rigidity, this opens up new possibilities during the stage by reducing the area of joins required for traditional

This results in a weight of 5 kg for the car as a whole, optimisation of window and therefore driver visibility.

The impact absorber

To obtain the possible front overhang, to enhance the car’s style and use of the vehicle on a day-to-day basis, it was to use a more effi cient absorption beam. The introduction of an Bogé impact absorber name comes from the holder) has allowed this cation to be achieved.

It uses two absorbers, located between the absorption beam and the chassis which is programmed with a deformation in the event of collision and internally without affecting the leg and therefore the engine compartment.


With the objective of optimum safety while minimal impact on the vehicle’s weight led to the use of materials lighter ordinary steel. High steel panels, including a new steel which becomes the higher the impact speed, for 12.5% of the vehicle’s weight.

should also be made of the which is manufactured from (as is the front impact absorption and the front wings, manufactured a composite material. Along lines, the panoramic laminated roof, as on the 308 SW, uses a glass of only 5 mm, allowing a gain of 5 kg compared to traditional technology, at the same time retaining the level of safety.


The goal of providing driving pleasure involves fi optimising the drivingposition. The desire to an ergonomic saloon-type driving on a taller

vehicle, with a steering wheel angle maximum appreciation of the vehicle’s holding ability, led to a number of technical solutions being at the very outset of the project.

For the steering column of the 3008 has universal joints instead of two to a perfect position of the steering in relation to the driver.

As a result, the nominal height of the ‘‘eye (height of the eye in relation to the road) to 1,046 mm (or 101 mm more than the the steering wheel angle in to the centre line of the driver is i.e. identical to that of the Everything is therefore in place to the driver a raised and ergonomic

for a new driving experience.


The question of the vehicle’s transmission was raised at the initial design since it required some capabilities.

The use of traditional ‘‘4×4’’ posed a number of constraints for the as a whole: its layout impacted on space, practicality and interior points of differentiation that important for the vehicle. In addition, the of the power train and the associated increase went against

the of the project to reduce running particularly in terms of fuel and CO2, emissions to a minimum. To this problem, two solutions implemented: Grip Control and

This technology not only a real breakthrough in terms of consumption and CO2 emissions (a reduction of 35%), but also in terms of wheel drive.

At the Paris Show, the Prologue HYbrid4 car was presented with a 2.0 litre HDi FAP with a power of 120 kW (163 and an electric motor with a capacity of 27 kW (37 bhp) for a total of 147 kW (200 bhp) and a maximum of 300 Nm at the front and 200 Nm at the rear. Despite performance, directly comparable to obtained with a single 2.2 HDi FAP dual-turbo engine, its fuel in the combined cycle is lower at 4.1 litres/100 km, with CO2 emissions of 109 g/km! This technology it possible to combine dynamic of the highest order with for the environment, while at the same maintaining the benefits of a spacious

Another important benefit is there are no mechanical connections the front and the rear everything is electronically (‘‘by wire’’). avoids any architectural constraints the interior space and style of the compartment. This promising which is still under was incorporated into the T84 programme the very outset, since it is consistent with the approach for the vehicle.

In accordance with the made at the Paris Motor the 3008 will be the Group’s fi rst to be equipped with HYbrid4 The commercial launch

of this wheel drive hybrid is planned between now and 2011, the 3008 an eco-effi cient in tune with the times and to meet the aspirations

of numerous types.

Style and exterior

The Peugeot style is always with a strong and dynamic that’s easily recognisable of a particular range. It is nonetheless changing.

Developments come to the some more marked others, according to the generation of the and, above all, its

In keeping with the car’s its style expresses itself original proportions and new vectors of The exterior style, however, in suggesting the vehicle’s particularly content.

At the front, the Peugeot have evolved to the car’s volumes while still it apart from what has before. The streamlined headlamps are in a new and original way, both and reassuring. The single front helps create the effect of a off-roader, with a look of the world of the SUV.

The lower panel reinforces the look of an thanks in particular to its solid protectors positioned in line the headlamps, within which are the fog lamps (*) each highlighted chrome inserts.

In profi le, the of the windows, plunging at the front, is by a chrome trim in its upper (*) which in the two highest trim matches the door mirror and the wide chrome inserts the door sills. This accentuate the height of the vehicle’s line and contributes, with its faceted wings, to the strong of robustness emanating from the as a whole.

At the rear, the wings with structured curves blend with the ruby colored lights with their fi nish, indicating the presence of emitting diodes. The originality of design adds to the perception of a that has its rear end fi rmly on the road. Here the presence of a tailgate and the large black in the lower rear panel, the ‘‘Outdoor’’ spirit of the 3008.

Through its external determined by its architecture and its style, the offers a new synthesis of capacity and in the Peugeot range.

Its length of m is the result of:

• its wheelbase, interior space, of 2.613 m,

The resulting cient of penetration through air and the SCx (0.760), despite a main (S) of 2.56 m2 due to the height and width of the are the result of extensive testing of the in a wind tunnel, all aimed at fuel consumption and therefore CO2

Inside the car

The 3008 plays the card to the full by combining incompatible characteristics: high for the driver, attention to every and an astonishing

level of modularity.


On opening the of the 3008, the passenger compartment a source of surprise and delight for its

In addition to its in complying with certain which can carry severe according to the particular country, the also has a teaching function: it with regards to the necessary and optimal safe distance for a vehicle.

In France, on motorways, to comply with safety is the cause of half of all accidents. in conditions of dense traffic 80 and 120 kph,

studies show 60% of French drivers follow the car in at an interval of less than two

Now in the event of an accident, out of those two it can be assumed that the driver take one second to react, one second to apply emergency It is therefore necessary to maintain a distance from the vehicle in at all times. This distance be proportional to speed, since in two the vehicle travels 56 metres at 100 and 72 metres at 130 kph.

It is this that the Distance Alert in real time to signal the of a potential hazard.

Wheels and suspension

Unique pleasure and off-road ability holding, closely linked to the of driving pleasure as envisaged by but also related to active is central to the design of all vehicles in the Particular attention has been to this aspect on the 3008 to the car as a new benchmark in the category of compact vehicles in the widest sense, and in relation to MPVs and SUVs.

one of the major motivations for potential when they are buying a car is pleasure, which can be understandably in ‘‘large and tall’’ vehicles.

To this particularly ambitious in terms of road holding, precision and body control, relied fi rstly on its solid and then on the already proven and wheel options from the

To reach even higher with the most effi engines and meet the expectations of the demanding customers, without cing comfort, a genuine and new technology Dynamic Roll was developed.

In addition, to meet the in terms of ‘‘all terrain’’ an all new Grip Control system was developed and patented.


Structurally, the manages the considerable feat for a vehicle of offering excellent rigidity. With 0.86 mrd a torque of 100 daNm, the latter is equivalent to a 308 SW (considered a benchmark in its in terms of road holding). rigidity is essentially what the optimal operation of the suspension.

on the same platform as the 308, it uses the same suspension contributed to the latter’s recognised qualities.

For example, the front is an inverted pseudo McPherson with a linked anti-roll a technology that provides control and a good level of fi ltering. The rear suspension, of a rear torsion beam, two suspension arms and an integral bar, is very compact and excellent rigidity, guaranteeing vibration control and excellent stability.

Its very wide and rear wheel tracks mm at the front and 1,527 mm at the rear 17’’ and 18’’ wheels), as as the wide tyres and wheels, enhance body

rigidity and the precision and stability, both in a line and when slowing or in a corner.

Designed and produced by with an ability to be fi nely during development, the multi-valve shock absorbers of the 3008 to 5 bar) actively contribute to levels of road holding and hitherto unseen in the segment. The mountings of the rear suspension, fl ex in three dimensions, also go a way to achieving this and will more dynamic drivers still ensuring perfect control and comfort for all passengers.


The objective for the 3008 is to a benchmark in terms of road a feature made up of several road holding, vertical body roll control, This objective had to be met on all versions of the regardless of engine. The higher the of the engine, the greater the inertia and the the body becomes subject to torque and power these can give rise to excessive on cars with a high of gravity under certain of use.

Therefore, to push boundaries in terms of body control on the two highest-performance engines litre THP and the new 2.0 litre HDi FAP); an all new Roll Control system was in collaboration with the company

This technology, appearing for the fi rst in this segment of the market, the 3008 to be consistent with the of its two most powerful petrol and versions and to further enhance its qualities while retaining a level of comfort.

This passive hydraulic consists of a central module the two rear shock absorbers, into the rear suspension This module, acting a third shock absorber, of a fl oating piston and a hydraulic reservoir. The unit is pressurised to 20

In corners or when taking action (roll phase), the links hydraulically the right and rear shock absorbers module internal piston not move). This makes it to increase the damping effect in to corner as ‘‘fl at’’ as reducing body movements and active safety.

In a straight (potential “bounce” phase), the two rear shock absorbers in an identical fashion and the module moves under the pressure of compressions. This allows an damping pattern to ensure the of all the occupants. Dynamic Roll thus enhances driving while preserving comfort on a basis thanks to the excellent fi of road irregularities.


The philosophy of the 3008 finds also through its traction the Grip Control.

This combines an upgraded traction system with Mud Snow Available as an option, it can be chosen by looking for a vehicle that enhanced

‘‘all terrain’’ and a performance in terms of traction far superior to that of a ‘‘traditional’’ regardless of the type of terrain

The aim of the system is to optimise the traction of front wheels by means of an traction control (developed and by Bosch), incorporated within the ECU of the Five modes are available to the and are accessible via a dedicated control on the console. Standard mode, the ESP is calibrated for a low level of wheel based on different grip normally experienced on roads.

mode adapts its strategy to the best grip conditions for of the front wheels when the car is away. As the car gains speed, the optimises traction control to the best possible acceleration to the existing grip conditions.

It to Standard mode when a in excess of 50 kph is detected. All-terrain (mud, dirt track, wet etc) allows a high of slip on the least stable when puling away to the elimination of mud and improve grip. At the time, the wheel with the grip level is given as torque as

possible. The torque between the front wheels can be as as 100%, well above the set for a limited slip differential

As the car gains speed, the system wheel slip to give the the best possible control the car. This mode is up to a speed of 80 kph. Sand allows slight wheel on both drive wheels to allow the vehicle to make and reduce the risk of getting in the sand.

Here too, the created by this mode is to that of a LSD system. In this Standard mode is reconnected above a speed of 120 kph. ESP Off allows the possibility of disconnecting the stability control (ESP) and Control up to a speed of 50 kph, full control back to the Above this

A high level of primary, and tertiary safety The 3008 ts from the Group’s extensive and the latest technology advances, to maximum safety at all levels. In of primary safety: as well as the of new equipment (Head Up Display, Alert, directional headlamps, the excellent rigidity of the structure, the suspension and electronic aids the 3008 benchmark road in its category. In terms of secondary the body structure is generously to withstand even the most collisions, such as those by EuroNCAP.

The controlled deformation of its and the restraint systems used the 3008 to aim for fi ve stars under the new protocol in 2009.

In terms of safety, the 3008 can of course the Peugeot Emergency Service, with the all new WIP Com 3D telematics system.


The 3008 is designed to dissipate impact energy in a way. To allow it to meet safety objectives, it includes in three impact

front overhang section ‘‘Basic engineering innovations’’). The aim of this specification is to maximum protection to the passenger (and its occupants), to limit the for a pedestrian in the event of collision, and to repairability; which also has a effect on the car’s

insurance for its owner.

Front impact

The compartment comprises of three absorption structures or channels, a fi rst seen on the 308, consisting of: a structure which backs up the upper structure formed by the legs through the use of two sub-frame a feature derived from the a third structure, consisting of located above the front arches and extending from the windscreen pillars and door braces.

In the event of front therefore, 3/5ths of the energy is through the main structure, through the lower channel and through the top structure. This structural design has an inbuilt strategy that determines the of forces before they are through the pre-established channels to specially designed to withstand the bulkhead, the underbody, the sills and the door braces spanning the and “B/C” posts. This around the passenger compartment a cell for all occupants.

Note that the steering column is in the event of impact, it retracts to a point to protect the driver.


To afford the best protection to occupants in the event of impact, the B post has been reinforced. The B/C post is composed of two of high

strength steel. All the also make a signifi contribution to the car’s overall by creating a “solid structure the A post, the B/C post and the rear arch. Similarly, crossmembers at fl oor level between the body and the bracing of the external sill add to the vehicle’s rigidity.


An impact beam is attached to the load sill area to impact energy and thereby a good level of repairability, the fi tment of the lower tailgate which is fl ush with the rear fl oor.


Supplementing the performance of the structure in of impact resistance, a range of equipment has been developed to and protect the occupants.

6 air bags are to protect the occupants: 2 adaptive air bags with a capacity of 40 for the driver and 80 litres for the passenger,

2 air bags (each with a of 18 litres) to protect the chest and of front occupants, 2 curtain air (30 litres) for the heads of the front and passengers.

5 point seat are featured, as well as an audible seat belt warning backed up visually by pictograms: in the seats, the seat belts pretensioners (double for the passenger to better restraint for the pelvis and and low tare force limiters, in the seats, the outer seat also have force “foldover” head restraints at the and “curved” head restraints at the optimise contact with the in the event of an impact.

2 Isofi x mountings are available on the rear seats for the installation of an Isofi x safety seat.

The 3008 features an electrically operated safety system which and safely locks the rear and windows. This function is with rear electric or combined with deadlocking.
