Peugeot 3008 do Brasil: and Delighting Its Customers

Peugeot has all downhill recently in Brazil. a relatively good showing in the São Car Show. its Brazilians offerings been nothing to write about. Having carved out a sixth place slot in (and sometimes threatening fifth place) when it got to Brazil, it has been recently by the likes of Toyota, Honda and Hyundai.

However, with the (for Brazil) 3008, was launched in Europe in 2009, is asking its Brazilians customers: Are you to give up your false-jeep and give a more minivan-looking a chance?

First surprise is the Yes, crazy as always for standards, but by local ones good.

Inside you’ll find not good space, but a tasteful and finish and layout. The instruments have a little sporting going on. Maybe this has to do with this car (unfortunately) not of Brazilian construction. It comes France and considering the 35 percent tax Brazil punishes it with, the is even more surprising. Of though, Peugeot knows this is a very steep for most Brazilians.

It expects of 200 a month. If Brazilians would up their SUV love affair for a I’d wager that that could be a tad higher.

Of Peugeot has beefed it up a little as is de rigueur nowadays, but it has a certain je ne quoi . Suffice to say, I it and its quite different both the SUVs (Honda CR-V, ix35) and minivans (Kia Citroën C4 Picasso) Peugeot the 3008 will wrangle in the Brazilian market. Another helping it is that it is quite (4.36 m long or 14.3ft.), but rather wide (at 1.83m or and has a good wheelbase (2.61m or I have a feeling even of our corn-fed American friends find it surprisingly comfy and

Not only that, but torque (24.5 m.kgf or pound-force feet) is available at 1,400rpm (very near making it fast off the line. Of due to the “low” displacement, there are no You have to step on it to get its best (and then the economic slowly, but surely goes the drain). But that’s the beauty of the movement so in vogue in Europe.

It can be quite economic when about, but it has the oomph when you for it. 0-100m (0-62.5 miles) is in 9.5 seconds and maximum speed is at 202km/h (126.25 mph). its efficiency and (ear) comfort at 120 (75 mph), the engine is revolving 2,600 times per minute.

Like I said, van will surprise and delight who have been showing signs that they’re of the very low content-feature in the “local” (though it seems the so-called makers are ignoring this, to peril). Fire it up and a little thingy comes up behind the On it, some extra information. GM’s head-up display but due to it not being on the windshield. No doubt, customers will praise it for practical solution should a come cracking across path.

Such a large windshield no doubt fetch a very price in the replacement market. if it also had all the extra complications of a display… Another thing surprise and confuse Brazilians is the of a hand brake. It’s all electronically.

Such things are not in Brazilian cars and while might call them I’m sure most will let themselves be pleased.

Also is that Peugeot decided to not to bless this car with little and most recent 1.6 but they also decided to their car with their modern 6-speed auto sequential mode. In 4-speed their Porsche supplied automatic was always a chore. The new one better sorted out and those who buy the car have bragging rights.

It contains a piston and a compensation chamber behaves as if the car had a third absorber hydraulic transference between the absorbers) as the body rolls curves. This means the car is well behaved.
