DPCA Premieres Chinese-Built Peugeot 3008 Crossover

Dongfeng-PSA (DPCA) unveiled the locally made Peugeot 3008 in Guangzhou on Wednesday evening, preparing to release it in early 2013. With two engine options, a 1.6T and 2.0, the 3008 crossover is expected to sell for 160,000-220,000 Yuan.

To adapt to the Chinese market, the 3008 has been modified in notable ways. Major changes, in comparison with the European version, include:

1. Addition of a 2.0 CVVT engine, which can develop up to 108kW of power and 200Nm of torque;

2. Increase of vehicle body-length from 4,365mm to 4,428mm;

3. Replacement of panoramic sunroof by a traditional, smaller one;

4. A complete re-design of the front grille to make it look much less distinctive;

5. Addition of roof racks on all three available versions;
