Peugeot has proved it's Peugeot 3008 Crossover with Grip Control is more than up to the job of keeping motorists safe in snowy conditions by becoming the first two wheel drive car to scale the one-in-three steep ski slope at the Snowdome in Tamworth.
James Smith, Operations Manager at Tamworth’s Snowdome, who drove the 3008 up the slope, said “I was totally astounded at its ability. The 3008 felt totally at home on the slope, more so in fact than some 4x4s that I’ve driven. It made relatively light work of the slope and that is no mean feat.”
Morgan Lecoupeur, Marketing Director, Peugeot UK, said “this has been a terrific exercise to demonstrate just how effective the Peugeot 3008 Grip Control is in winter conditions and offers an ideal compromise for buyers looking for 4x4 capabilities but without the associated penalties in fuel economy and higher CO2.”
Peugeot's award winning Peugeot 3008 Crossover is available with extra standard specification on the Sport and Exclusive models and a more efficient Euro 5 Hdi 112 diesel engine, this new HDi 112 Euro 5 engine provides improved CO2 emissions and fuel consumption.
