The Peugeot 3008 has finally been launched in Malaysia, a few days after local distributor Nasim put up a registration of interest page. As revealed earlier, the fully imported SUV is available in two flavours – A...
With order books now open for the Peugeot 3008, we now bring you a walk-around tour of the fully-imported (CBU) French SUV. For the Malaysian market, two variants of the 3008 - Active THP and Allure THP – will be ...
An award is never a guarantee that a product will turn out to be a commercial success, but it offers a validation that the item is – at least for that moment – perceivably ahead of the rest of the field. When th...
Welcome to a new episode of Driven Web Series, powered by Petronas Dynamic Diesel Euro 5 with Pro-Drive. For many of you looking to buy your first practical family SUV, this is the episode you've all been waiting fo...
Nice car design - internal + external. Good viewability (except for rear view but not too bad!)
Fast pickup - very nippy!.
Very good and tight turning radius.
Quiet engine noise - internal and external.
Nice and useful i-Cockpit design and vehicle automation / user-interface.
Having issues with Waze and Google Maps navigation apps on my phone working with Android Auto - to display on the centre screen (and also on the i-Cockpit screen)! Pls fix this - URGENT!!!
SAFETY Features that has been removed for the Malaysian market (stupid!):
- AEB (Automatic Emergency Braking)
- Blind Spot Detection on side rear view mirrors
- No open rooftop option for M'sian market
Brakes are a bit too "stiff" - leading to jerky braking.
Small steering wheel makes the car too sensitive to slight steering movements - may be a safety issue when driving at high speeds!
Other Features removed:
- Adaptive Cruise Control
Ground clearance in the front is too low for anything more than very gentle off-roading (although middle and rear ground clearance is good).
No 4-WD option.
Back seat row has the rear air-con vent jutting into leg space a bit too much!
Air-con not very effective in our hot humid tropical weather in M'sia - you'll need to tint your windscreen/windows with V-Kool 99% Infra-Red and UV radiant energy cutoff specs - abt RM 4000+/- !) - and you may also want to apply a heat reducing coat polish on the vehicle roof.
Improve ground clearance at vehicle front.
But back all the main SAFETY Features that have been removed for the local market.
I bought this vehicle largely because of its Safety features (Euro NCAAP safety and other rankings etc. that was advertised) - only to find I don't have it after purchase. This is the kind of consumer fraud that puts life at risk!
