Solely marketed and distributed in Sri Lanka by Carmart Ltd., world-renowned European vehicle brand Peugeot recorded an exceptional year in 2018 in terms of its vehicle sales. Spearheaded by its state-of-the-art Peugeot 3008 and 5008 SUVs the company saw close to 300 registrations in 2018 alone, thereby cementing its position as the most popular European brand new SUV in Sri Lanka.

Further to the many accolades that the SUV range had already won since its introduction, it was also named ‘Carbuyer’s Best Medium SUV 2019,’ the Driver Power’s ‘Car of the Year 2018’ and the ‘Gold Winner – Mid-Sized SUV 2018’ in the 16th Driver Power survey. 

The sleek Peugeot 3008 SUV combines technology with elegance to display strength and character, and has won 63 prizes worldwide and was voted Car of the Year 2017 by 58 European journalists from 22 countries.

The Peugeot 3008 offers a unique blend of style, comfort and road handling. The spectacular Peugeot i-Cockpit is state-of-the-art and gives new meaning to being in the driver’s seat. It offers a more intuitive and intense driving experience, with a compact steering wheel, 12.3 inch head-up instrument display and central 8 inch capacitive touchscreen console with ergonomic piano keys to top it all off. It also offers several driving aids and other high-tech equipment, as well as seamless connectivity. 

Moreover, European brands in general have more appeal among customers for its prestige, comfort and safety. Peugeot in particular scores highly on all three of these fronts coupling superior design with maximum comfort and safety in mind. 

Cutting edge features in its class include the Grip Control all terrain system, enabling off road use with a 2WD vehicle; wireless phone charging; an electric tailgate with foot sensor; intelligent reading of speed limit signs; driver drowsiness alert system; 180 degree camera; massaging driver’s seat; a top of the line Focal Hi-Fi system; Nappa leather interior; and a panoramic glass roof with sliding sunroof. 

Carmart Ltd. has been importing Peugeot vehicles since 1953, making it one of the oldest importers for Peugeot in the world, and the oldest in the Asian region. The SUV range is being marketed with a comprehensive manufacturer warranty of three years/60,000kms.

The Peugeot SUV range is available for test-drives and viewing at the Peugeot Blue Box showroom at 424 Union Place, Colombo 2 or call 0761 808808.
