PEUGEOT 3008 PLUS Launched By Nasim
Nasim Sdn Bhd, the official distributor for the Peugeot brand in Malaysia, has kicked into high gear for second half of 2019 through the launch of the New Peugeot 3008 SUV Plus.
SM Nasarudin SM Nasimuddin, Group Executive Chairman & CEO, Naza Corporation Holdings said, “The New Peugeot 3008 SUV Plus is the culmination of a joint agreement in 2018 between Naza Group and Groupe PSA to establish Naza Automotive Manufacturing (NAM) as the Southeast Asia hub. We are excited to be celebrating this milestone with two of Peugeot’s best performing models that continue to blaze the trail for SUVs and pushing boundaries of possibility.”
The New Peugeot 3008 SUV Plus underscores the French marque’s expertise in crafting a highly successful SUV that is built on the principles of design and advanced technology. The global success for the winner of ‘European Car Of The Year 2017’ and ‘Malaysia Automotive Institute’s Car Of The Year 2018’ evidently resonated with Malaysian road users last year by recording the country’s highest sales volume for a European SUV.
The sophisticated interior is an invitation to experience comfort, serenity and luxury. Once inside, occupants are welcomed by plush Claudia leather seats with either Graphite or Goa stitching that varies by the variant. Maintaining its fresh and dignified leather and fabric dashboard and door panel décor, the dashboard is further illuminated by blue mood lighting touches all around the cabin.
Committed to delivering a high-end experience, the new Peugeot i-Cockpit reflects this promise through numerous thoughtful touches. A new Navigation function is now embedded in the 8-inch Multifunction Colour touchscreen on the New 3008 SUV Plus. The segment-leading 12.3-inch high-resolution Head-Up Digital Cluster Display becomes more customisable with the addition of ‘Onyx’ graphical style, a new ‘Driving Assistance’ display mode and new tailor-made ‘Personal’ modes.
Peugeot i-Cockpit Amplify adds a touch of youthfulness to the cabin by allowing the adaptation of key settings enabled by two distinctive ambiances that evoke emotional satisfaction: ‘BOOST’ for a dynamic experience or ‘RELAX’ to envelope the occupants in a serene ambiance. Activating the new Drive Sport Pack heightens the sight, touch and hearing senses for a sporty grip and feeling through stiffer assisted steering, more responsive accelerator, greater engine and gearbox agility and digitally amplified engine sound.
An ingenious motorised smart tailgate is built into both models to provide convenience in opening and closing the boot hands-free with a swift foot motion under the bumper’s centre.
To fully appreciate the capability of the New 3008 SUV Plus takes a multitude of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems such as Driver Attention Alert, Speed Limit Recognition and Recommendation, 180 degree reverse camera with stitching function, and an upgraded Blind Spot Information System and Active Lane Departure Warning, which utilises a windscreen camera to detect road markings and automatically adjusts the vehicle’s direction slightly while alerting the driver.
Reinforcing safety are industry standard features such as 6 safety airbags, Advanced Electronic Stability Program, Advanced Grip Control, Hill Start Assist, Indirect Tyre Pressure Detection and an Electronic Stability Program which incorporates Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD), Emergency Brake Assistance (EBA), Wheel Anti-Slip Regulation (ASR) and Dynamic Stability Control (DSC).
The Active base variant of the New Peugeot 3008 SUV Plus is offered at RM150,888 while the higher spec Allure variant goes for RM163,888, both on-the-road prices excluding insurance.
