Peugeot expands 3008 line-upNew SR and Envy models added to 3008 MPV range
11 January 2011
The Peugeot 3008 range has grown in size with the introduction of two new trim levels.
The Peugeot 3008 SR joins the standard line-up, slotting in between Sport and Exclusive specs, while the Peugeot 3008 Envy adds a touch of glamour as a new special edition.
Peugeot 3008 SR
The new Peugeot 3008 SR specification joins the existing Active, Sport and Exclusive as a new standard model in the 3008 range.
The SR is based on the Sport, but includes a comprehensive list of extra equipment. Highlight features are the RNEG Colour Satellite Navigation, Bluetooth and 16-inch alloy wheels. The latter are fitted with Mud + Snow tyres, designed to compliment the Grip Control traction control system - a further upgrade fitted to the SR as standard.
Grip Control gives the 3008 greater off-road ability by enabling electronics to deal with wheelspin on more challenging surfaces. However, the 3008 only comes with front-wheel drive rather than four-wheel drive.
Engine choice for the SR is limited to the 112bhp 1.6-litre HDi turbodiesel. This emits 135g/km CO2 and returns a claimed 55.6mpg with the standard six-speed manual gearbox, or 129g/km CO2 and 57.7mpg with the more expensive six-speed EGC automatic.

Peugeot 3008 Envy
The Peugeot 3008 Envy is a special edition, also based on the existing Sport specification.
Extra kit includes a useful head-up display for the instrument panel and Cielo panoramic glass roof, while additional aluminium detailing and dark-tinted window glass smarten the exterior appearance.
Engine choice for the 3008 Envy consists of the same 112bhp 1.6 HDi diesel and six-speed manual gearbox combo as the SR above, or (for slightly less money) a 120bhp 1.6-litre petrol with five-speed manual gearbox. The latter emits 159g/km CO2 and claims 40.1mpg, but gets from 0-62mph nearly two seconds faster – the benchmark sprint taking 11.8 seconds in the petrol, 13.6 seconds in the diesel.
New Peugeot 3008 models: Pricing
The Peugeot 3008 SR costs from £20,645 with the manual gearbox or £21,195 with the EGC automatic.
The Peugeot 3008 Envy, meanwhile, starts at £18,995 for the petrol and £20,495 for the diesel – a slight £600 increase over the more ordinary Sport.
Both new versions of this practical crossover are available to order now.
