Its Malaysian debut is probably estimated in the second quarter of 2017, according to official distributors Nasim.
The new Peugeot 3008 SUV arrives at a time when customers are ever increasingly expecting differentiation and new experiences, with very strong assets. Whether through its revolutionary, latest generation Peugeot i-Cockpit, its exemplary design, or its high-tech equipment, the new Peugeot 3008 SUV aims to establish itself immediately as a key player.
