Exceptionally stylish, practical, comfortable to drive and now even more affordable, Peugeot is introducing the limited edition exclusively on the Peugeot 3008 1.2-litre Active, which will display a “Limited Edition” badge. The 1.2-litre Active offers the best of both worlds with outstanding engine efficiency and sporty styling. It brings you advanced technology, a unique driving experience, an impressive interior as well as increased passenger and luggage space for just N$369 900 in South Africa, making it one of the most of the most competitive SUV’S in its segment.

Superior quality materials surround a classy modern interior layout with lots of high-tech clean lines and premium touches.

The 3008 1.2-litre Active has a great feeling of space. The extended wheelbase improves on legroom and the raised ride height means more headroom for all on board. The boot will swallow 591 litres with the rear seats up and 1670 litres with them folded flat.

The 3008 1.2-litre Active is also greener and more fuel-efficient than ever before. The three-cylinder engine is punchy with more than enough torque to get up to speed without labouring. Linked to a six-speed manual gearbox the 1.2-litre Active has effortless ratios that allows for relaxed cruising. It is easy to drive around town, and impressively quiet and civilised on the open roads. Peugeot’s trademark sporty steering wheel is light and precise, nicely weighted and easily manoeuvrable and the 1,270kg kerb weight means you will experience excellent fuel economy too.

The Limited Edition 3008 1.2-litre Active offers a more affordable and economical option, without compromising on the quality and specification the rest of the range has to offer. “As the badge implies this vehicle will be brought in in limited quantities and will be available until stock runs out” Francisco concluded.
