SCOOP! – Video reveals the second generation Peugeot 3008. In its GT version

The official revelation of the second generation Peugeot 3008 will happen in May 23, but the car is already being produced at the Sochaux plant, in France. And L’Argus has obtained a video that presents the new crossover 10 days before the premiere. Check it below.

The new crossover will be built over the new modular platform from PSA, called EMP2. And it will have two different appearances: a regular one, for entry-level versions, and the GT, the one you can see in this video, which is sportier.

The engines and transmissions of the new 3008 tend to be the same ones used by the previous one. The change will be all about appearance and the use of the new platform, which is aimed at bringing a higher production scale and a more efficient use of parts. All of these factors lower the costs of production, a stepstone for carmakers profitability. And PSA does not want to neglect it.
