More about the Peugeot 3008
The Peugeot 3008 offers plenty of space within the vehicle for five adults plus luggage, however, if it still seems a little tight, the 5008 seven-seater option shares the same platform but is larger.
The features within the 3008 have also been developed to keep in line with its SUV rivals. The Grip Control system has been improved and can now keep up with most things that 4WD vehicles offer, except for extreme off-roading. The Grip Control is run by a rotary controller to the centre console that allows you to select the driving mode that’s most suitable for the terrain, which is a helpful feature when you are hitched up and towing.
There are several different options for the 3008 available, dependent on your requirements. There is no entry-level Access model, so the line-up begins with the Active Premium model which comes well-equipped. From there, further options such as the Allure Premium GT and the GT Premium trims are offered if you want to add a sporty sparkle to your commute. It is worth noting that if you choose to purchase the hybrid version of the 3008, the installation of a towbar is not possible.
What's my Towing Capacity?
The Peugeot 3008 has an average towing capacity of 1,000KG to 1,750KG which will allow the driver to tow anything from a cycle carrier up to a small caravan. You must always check the weight of what you are towing as overloading your vehicle can cause damage to your chassis. To receive an accurate towing capacity for your Peugeot 3008 please refer to your vehicle's VIN plate.
Which Towbar is best for my Peugeot 3008?
There are three different styles of towbars available for the Peugeot 3008, a fixed swan neck towbar, a fixed flange towbar and a detachable swan neck towbar.
The fixed flange towbar is a permanent style of towbar, meaning it cannot be removed from the vehicle’s chassis. The fixed flange towbar is the only style of towbar that is equipped with a back plate, this allows for towing accessories to be bolted on the plate leaving the towball free to tow with. If you are planning on towing a Caravan with an ALKO stabiliser an ALKO towball would need to be purchased before fitment.
The fixed swan neck towbar is another style of permanent towbar, however, due to its thin design it is popular with Kodiaq owners with rear parking sensors. The fixed swan neck allows for a lot more clearance between the towball and parking sensors than the fixed flange towbar, therefore making it a lot less likely to cause interference when the vehicle is put in reverse. The Fixed swan neck is also ALKO compatible meaning there is no requirement for an ALKO towball if you are planning on hitching up a caravan with an ALKO stabiliser. The fixed swan neck is compatible with all clamp-on styles of towbars, trailers, and caravans.
The detachable swan neck is the only detachable style of towbar that we offer and its sleek design is popular with customers wanting to preserve the aesthetic of their vehicle. The detachable swan neck is easily removed from its housing using a twist-and-push method. For protection, each detachable towbar comes with a key to lock the towbar neck into place during use and ensure that nobody else can remove the towbar if left on the vehicle. All the detachable swan neck towbars are compatible with all clamp-on cycle carriers, trailers, caravans and ALKO stabilisers.
Will it need a bumper cut?
When fitting any of the three styles of towbars to your Peugeot 3008 there will be a small bumper cut made to the vehicle's undertray. The bumper cut is classed as non-visible as it will only be noticeable if looking underneath the car at its undertray. During the towbar installation, the bumper will be removed, upon completion, this will be carefully refitted.
Our professional towbar engineer will always begin the fitment by guiding you through the process and explaining any modifications that may need to be made to your vehicle, and then again when the engineer has finished the fitment, he will show you how the towbar works and answer any questions you may have.
