The 3008 range will go on sale later this month with a four-variant model structure and entry level pricing starting from $39,990 drive-away.
At that price buyers will have access to the entry-level 3008 Active (with regular pricing of $36,990 plus on-road costs), but can step up through the range to the the Allure from $39,490, GT Line from $43,490 and range-topping GT at $49,490 (all plus on-road costs).
Power for the Active, Allure and GT Line variants comes from a turbocharged 1.6-litre four-cylinder petrol engine that produces 121kW of power and 240Nm of torque. The GT builds on those figures thanks to a 1.6-litre four-cylinder turbo diesel that produces 133kW and a more substantial 400Nm.

The GT Line brings sporty style with a black headlining, extended interior ambient lighting, black mirrors and roof, sports bumpers, and stainless steel scuff plates.
At the top of the range the GT steps up to 19-inch alloy wheels, wheel arch extensions, Alcantara interior inserts, chrome mirror caps, a powered driver's seat with massage function, and front seat heating.
Safety systems across the range include six airbags, speed limit recognition, driver fatigue detection, lane departure warning, and a distance alert system.
