Peugeot 3008 SUV Tackles Ho Chi Minh Trail

Peugeot 308 GT Ho Chi Min Trail 1 Having conquered city streets across the globe, Peugeot has created a one-off adventure version of its best-selling 3008 SUV to tackle the muddiest trails and deepest forests of Vietnam’s renowned Ho Chi Minh trail.

  • Unique Peugeot 3008 concept shows SUV in adventure-ready specification
  • One-off is based on a 1.6-litre PureTech GT Line model and features rugged steel wheels, off-road tyres, underbody protection and a powerful LED lightbar
  • Expedition-style roof tent transforms the Peugeot 3008 into a go-anywhere camper
  • Peugeot’s Advanced Grip Control technology ensures its best-selling SUV can tackle muddy off-road trails with confidence

The unique, go-anywhere Peugeot 3008 GT Line was powered by PSA’s proven 1.6-litre, turbo-charged petrol, PureTech drivetrain and featured a series of subtle all-terrain enhancements.

Grippy Cooper AT3 off-road tyres are fitted to its purposeful 17-inch steel wheels and underbody protection is boosted by a front skid plate.

A powerful LED light bar at the front of the Rival aluminium roof rack provides additional illumination when driving on unmarked roads and, when it’s time to stop, drivers can spend the night camping on top of the 3008 in a fully retractable ARB Simpson roof tent.

The one-off model is finished in a unique wrap and fitted with a bicycle rack – perfect for carrying a Peugeot trail bike for two-wheeled adventures.

The special 3008 SUV was created for a feature in Top Gear Magazine, and successfully tackled the northern section of the iconic Ho Chi Minh trail in Vietnam as part of an epic on- and off-road drive.
