Making the transition from an MPV to a crossover, the next-generation Peugeot 3008 has been spied once again while performing winter testing.

More and more models are making the switch from analog dials to all-digital dashboards and the next in line seems to be the second-generation Peugeot 3008.

Set to be unveiled later this year, the new model will have a vastly different interior cabin compared to the outgoing model and among the novelties there will be a redesigned steering wheel as seen on this prototype. Company boss Maxime Picat said a while back the new 3008 will come with an “amazing Peugeot iCockpit” and now we know part of the setup will be an entirely digital instrument cluster.

The vehicle’s shape has also gone through some extensive changes as Peugeot will transform the 3008 into a proper crossover whereas the current model blends MPV and SUV cues. It will ride on the same EMP2 platform as the 308 and will also share its underpinnings with the next Opel Meriva. A front-wheel drive layout will be standard, but select versions will be offered with an optional all-wheel-drive system.

The engine lineup will include turbocharged three- and four-cylinder gasoline and diesel engines taken from the 308 which will also provide the six-speed manual and automatic transmissions. Don’t hold your breath for a HYbrid4 diesel electric setup as PSA announced last year the hardware will be axed.

Expect to see the all-new Peugeot 3008 break cover at the beginning of October during the 2016 Paris Motor Show, with sales to start shortly thereafter.
