To allow you to take on a variety of weather and terrains, the New Peugeot 3008 SUV specified with Advanced Grip Control®, a system designed to optimise traction in low-grip conditions. It adapts to the terrain by acting on the front wheels, in doing so this saves the weight normally associated with a more conventional four wheel drive system.
Advanced Grip Control® offers the driver a choice of five driving modes, accessed via a rotary dial on the centre console.
In addition the system also incorporates Hill Assist Descent Control (HADC), this optimises vehicle control on steep slopes. When descending a slope with a gradient of more than 5% and with vehicle speed below 30kph the system will work to reduce the risk of slipping. During a descent the system maintains speed and brake control, allowing the driver to concentrate on the vehicles path of travel during the manoeuvre.
A clever feature incorporated within the Hill Assist Descent Control system is our unique 'Clutch Mode' security function. Selecting this function for very steep slopes regulates the vehicle speed to 3kph, this allows the vehicle to creep down a steep slope in a completely controlled manner.
