Peugeot launches 3008 SUV Active Petrol variant

French mobility and luxury



Peugeot Philippines brings luxurious French living closer to Filipino car buyers with the launch of the New Peugeot 3008 Active Petrol.

The Peugeot 3008 SUV Active Petrol possesses all the defining traits of the award-winning SUV when it made its successful debut in Europe. Combining a sleek and modern design with innovative technologies, the Peugeot 3008 SUV elevates the driving experience to a whole new level.

Similar to the 3008 SUV Active Diesel, the petrol variant possesses unique and distinctive styling, now attainable at a more agreeable price.

The SUV features uniquely shaped headlights flanking the broad waterfall grille, providing a feline-line appearance to the vehicle. Behind, it employs Peugeot’s signature claw effect LED lighting. Its dynamic silhouette highlights an athletic and aggressive stance, which flows from the front grill, down its sides and edged trims, all the way to the gloss black rear panel.


Inside, driver and passengers alike are treated to a modern, sophisticated cabin with premium finishes. New to this iteration is a longer wheelbase, which translates to better legroom for rear passengers. All seats are upholstered in a sophisticated Claudia all-leather trim.

The driver will enjoy the benefits of Peugeot’s own i-Cockpit design with a high-mount LCD instrument cluster, and everything within easy reach. Its compact steering wheel returns a sporty feel while a 12.3-inch touch screen controls climate and entertainment settings.


Propelling the 3008 SUV Active Petrol is a 1.6L Turbo High Pressure (THP) petrol engine with an output of 165 PS and 240 Nm of torque. It is paired with a six-speed Efficient Automatic Transmission (EAT6), with paddle shifters (manual mode), and a Sport Mode for even greater responsiveness.

“The launch of the 3008 SUV Active Petrol is exciting for us because we are finally able to compete fairly with the best products the industry has to offer. It also affirms the commitment of the Peugeot brand to the Philippines,” said Dodie Gañac, Peugeot Philippines’ Director for Sales.

“The allure of the 3008 SUV lies in its design and driving comfort, so we made sure that customers will see and feel no difference between this variant and the rest of our product range,” he added.

The Peugeot 3008 SUV Active Petrol is now available at PhP 1,890,000 in select Peugeot Philippines dealerships. Likewise, the Peugeot 3008 Active Diesel variant is also available, with its price dropped to PhP 2,090,000.
