The design of the Peugeot 3008 interior forms a big part of its appeal. Let’s examine some of the key elements and take a closer look at all the elements that make this SUV such a wonderful car to drive in.
The wonderful i-Cockpit
Peugeot’s signature i-Cockpit design serves to create an enhanced driving experience. Sitting down in the comfortable driver’s seat you are surrounded by modern technology and controls all thoughtfully laid and out within easy reach.
The ‘cockpit’ design is based on the driver as its main focus. Controls on the centre console dashboard have been angled towards the driver whilst a configurable 12.3-inch fully digital head-up digital instrument panel is positioned above the steering wheel to appear closer to the road, reducing the distance your eyes travel to view key information. The position of the steering wheel is low set to reduce arm fatigue, whilst its compact size and form serve to heighten the sense of agility when going around bends.
A central touch screen about the size of your average tablet is positioned on the dashboard right next to the head up instrument panel allowing for convenient visual referral and access. The colour screen is high definition and is accompanied by a series of seven physical elegant “piano keys” or “toggle switches” that it works in conjunction with to allow access to the main functions of the Peugeot 3008 including the radio, air conditioning, 3D navigation with voice command, vehicle settings, telephone, mobile apps and hazard warning lights.
Maintaining that connection
Smartphones have become an integral part of your daily life, and driving in the Peugeot 3008 it is no different. Seamlessly integrate your smartphone into the central infotainment unit with MirrorScreen compatibility including using Apple CarPlay or Android Auto to connect to your device. Keep your phone charged wirelessly by simply placing it on the induction recharge pad.
It’s all in the detail
No detail has been overlooked, from the stitching of the leather trimmed steering wheel and gear stick,to the glossy black trim, striking chrome detailing and mix of soft touch materials covering the door and dashboard. The satin chrome toggle switches, whose design is inspired by the world of aviation is a work of art, with perfect weighting and damping of each one making it a joy to use.
High quality material used on the wrap-around design with metal accents, combines well to give the cabin a stylish, upmarket feel. Create your own ambience through a choice of interior seat trims and various finishes that add to the quality and allure of the cabin.
Space for all
You’ll find no shortage of places to put your wallets, keys, small umbrellas etc. There’s the glovebox, cupholders and door bins in both the front and rear, trays for your keys and mobile, and a centre armrest with a huge air conditioned interior, able to keep that sandwich and chocolate bar nice and cool for you.
Create your own in-car space with Peugeot 3008’s Magic Flat system that allows you to fold the rear seats completely flat in a 2/3-1/3 split with handy quick-release levers just inside the boot opening.
The Peugeot 3008 boot space is very generous, more than capable of fitting the weekly shopping along with a pram or two with ease. The perfect combination of a wide opening, low load lip and a boot floor that slides out makes it easy to load a large box or esky with both hands without having to bend over.
The French manufacturer has continued again to successfully produce a modern family SUV in the Peugeot 3008, with a cabin environment that is not only practical, but also very classy and comfortable.
