Peugeot Philippines Brings in More Affordable 3008 SUV (w/ Specs)


Peugeot Philippines continues its strategy to increase its presence in the compact SUV segment with the launch of a new Peugeot 3008 variant: the 3008 Active. Taking on the immense success of the 3008 SUV GT Line, this new variant comes at a price point that is P 500,000 less than its GT Line sibling.

“Peugeot is proud to unveil the first stage in its long-term goal of bringing its products to a wider and truly global audience,” Peugeot Philippines President Glen Dasig said. “To achieve this, we are making our vehicles more accessible to the market while still providing the same driving experience and comfort found in our current range,” he added.

Similar to the GT Line variant, the Peugeot 3008 SUV Active Diesel possesses a unique and distinctive style. Its dynamic silhouette highlights an athletic and aggressive stance, creating one uninterrupted flow from the concave radiator grille with edged trims and chromed facets to the gloss black rear panel incorporating Peugeot’s signature claw effect LED lighting. The slim halogen headlights complete the look by providing the vehicle a feline-like appearance.


Inside, the Peugeot 3008 SUV Active features a modern and sophisticated cabin. Peugeot’s revolutionary i-Cockpit provides the driver the utmost in comfort and accessibility with an elevated driving position, compact steering wheel, touchscreen controls, and a futuristic all-digital dashboard.

At the heart of the Peugeot 3008 SUV Active is a 2.0-liter turbocharged diesel engine also found in the GT Line variant. With an output of 150 horsepower and 370 Nm of torque, the turbocharging technology found in the Peugeot 3008 SUV Active provides more power and consumes less fuel than most gasoline-powered compact SUVs of the same displacement.

“No compromises have been taken in making the Peugeot 3008 SUV Active more attainable,” Peugeot Philippines President Glen Dasig said. “This is proof that Peugeot has taken serious interest in expanding its reach in the Philippines by providing products that are priced very competitively against its rivals,” he added.


The Peugeot 3008 SUV Active Diesel is now available in select Peugeot dealerships nationwide with a price of P 2,390,000 and comes in three exterior colors: Bianca White, Nera Black, and Artense Gray.

  2. Distributor can address this by offering a buy back option to buyers by say, 50% of purchase value after 5 years. MB/Cats offered this years back and it worked for them.
