Peugeot 3008 to compete with Hyundai Creta

Published

on

Peugeot is making an entry into the Indian car market and it seems to be getting SUVs too. The Peugeot 3008 will be an all new SUV that will be making its entry into India as a mid-size SUV. The Peugeot 3008 will be offered in the Indian car market as an all SUV that will be somewhat longer than 4 metres in length. The French automaker is looking at getting multiple new products into the Indian car market. 

Peugeot is looking at getting a premium hatchback, sedan and an SUV to the Indian car market. The Peugeot had come to India back in 1990s with a 309 sedan. This new SUV will be an exciting product from the brand. Peugeot is looking at localising its products for the Indian car market and it has procured the Hindustan Motors plant in Chennai. This is where the Isuzu SUVs were manufactured. The Peugeot 3008 is one of the highest SUVs in this segment in Europe and there have been reports of it coming to India.

Peugeot 3008 side

In length, this SUV will be about 4.2 metres, will come with 1.2-litre turbo petrol and a re-engineered 1.5-litre diesel engine for the Indian car market. Peugeot will be getting this new SUV with an automatic, at least on the petrol engine. This will be a front-wheel drive SUV and not an all-wheel drive for India.

Peugeot 3008 Launch Date

PSA Group shall commence its operations in India by 2020. It will not be anything before this, that Peugeot will commence its Indian car operations. Peugeot might have come a bit late to the Indian party and it seems so. The French car brand will be looking at adding more products on offer. The Peugeot 3008 will be the first SUV on offer from them.

Peugeot 3008 Price in India

Lower Variant Petrol ₹ 9.5 Lakh
Higher Petrol Variant ₹ 15 Lakh
Lower Diesel Variant ₹ 10.5 lakhs
Higher Diesel Variant ₹ 17 lakhs

The Peugeot 3008 will be priced in the range of Hyundai Creta itself. So, we can expect it to come for ₹ 10 lakhs for the base model, going up to ₹ 17 lakhs (on-road pricing). The Peugeot can be cheaper only if it gets a high localisation for this product. This is the only way by which it can turn around its table in its favour. Lower cost of production, service and even cheaper ownership experience. This will help the Indian car market to get another new strong brand, else it will be just another car brand.

Peugeot 3008 Design

This French car group has a radical design for most of its cars. The same goes for the 3008. This new SUV has a large front grille, a cool looking front bumper and the headlamps are stylish too. The front fog lamps also stand out in styling. The headlamps look different and will catch attention. The side profile is very crossover like. The side profile glass area looks unique in design.

Peugeot 3008 rear

The only talking point here is the dual tone on offer on the C and D pillars. The rear continues with radical styling. The tail lamps seem to have been inspired from the Mustang. The overall styling makes it look different. It will have good presence. It will have aluminium roof rails and a sloping roofline.

Peugeot 3008 Interior

The French design continues inside the SUV too. The dashboard design is like a cockpit. There is a stylish instrument cluster, racing-inspired steering wheel with controls and paddle shifters. The centre console is neat with a large touchscreen, controls for air-con and a cool looking gear knob. There is blue ambient lighting inside and the cabin looks cool. All black interiors prevail.

This is a five-seater SUV and equal emphasis should be given to the rear seat space. This will help Peugeot to add more sales numbers into the Indian car market.

Peugeot 3008 Specifications

Engine Description 1.5-litre diesel 1.2 turbo petrol
Maximum Power 120 Bhp @ 6000 rpm 131bhp
Maximum Torque 160 Nm @ 4250 rpm 150Nm
Gearbox 6-speed manual/ auto 6-speed manual

A 1.2-litre turbo petrol engine will be used on the Peugeot 3008. This will churn about 131bhp of power and it will come with six-speed manual and automatic transmission. The diesel will be adopted for India with a 1.5-litre mill churning about 120bhp of power. This engine will also come mated to a six-speed manual transmission. In Europe, Peugeot even sells it with a 2.0-litre diesel engine, which might be the correct choice for the Indian car market.

Peugeot has been known for its frugal engineering and efficient diesel engines. This could be its opportunity to showcase its ability to get high-class diesel engines. At the moment, Renault only has the K9K diesel engine, which known for its mileage than its performance.

Peugeot 3008 Dimensions

Overall Width 1836 mm
Overall Height 1639 mm
Wheelbase 2613 mm

Honda WRV crosses 50,000 sales mark

Honda WR-V seems to be the next big thing for the brand. We share a detailed review

Published

on

Honda WRV front angle

The Honda WRV has been one of the best sellers from the Japanese manufacturer. The crossover has sold more than 50,000 units, thereby becoming one of the most important products for the company. Honda WRV clocked 37,031 units last financial year and the company says that the crossover accounts for 28% of its sales. Honda WRV was conceived in India and is the first Honda product to have extensive R&D work carried out in India. This is therefore an important milestone for the company. As per Honda, 80% of the sales come for the top-of the line VX variant and only 20% were in the entry-level S variant. We have in past also pointed out that surprisingly, one of the key factors for high sales of WRV in its category has been the offering of a sunroof.

The Honda Jazz was not as big a hit as the WRV. Clearly the WRV has bettered its competition on many counts. Honda WRV is one of the best sellers in its segment which comprises of the Ford Ecosport, Maruti Vitara Brezza and the Tata Nexon. This is a compact SUV that is based on the Jazz and has a lot of similarity to the hatchback.

The exterior might not say that, and it looks like a totally different vehicle. The interiors are where there is a lot of similarity. This SUV is under 4 metres too. There are more features on offer too. The engines available are the 1.2-litre petrol with a five-speed manual and a 1.5-litre diesel with a six-speed manual. The Honda WRV offers a lot more features. In terms of space it is the same like the Jazz. There is no differentiating factor there. Should you consider buying this new compact SUV? Or look at something else?

2017 Maruti S-Cross facelift front

The 2017 Maruti S-Cross will be launching very soon. This is another Crossover from Maruti, which was launched before the popular Vitara Brezza. The S-Cross is a premium vehicle as compared to the Brezza and offers best of both worlds, which is a car like feel with a high ground clearance and good utility. The 2017 Maruti S-Cross is a facelift so the changes of this vehicle will be minimal. We were the first to bring you the news about the 1.6-litre engine being discontinued in the S-Cross facelift. This vehicle will only come with the 1.3-litre diesel engine.

There are afew changes that S-Cross will be getting, howvwer, they are purely cosmetic in nature. The exteriors are upgraded mainly. This includes a new front fascia. The changes on the inside are not too many. Performance lover will now be a bit disappointed as the more powerful 1.6-litre version will not make it in the facelift.

The Maruti S-Cross had earned itself an expensive car tag due the high price of the 1.6-litre version. This was one of the reasons for the vehicle to clock luke warm sales numbers. This was the first vehicle to be sold from the Nexa showrooms. Now with Nexa getting more popular and spreading wide, there is a chance that the S-Cross facelift will do better than before.
