Remarketing notes: Peugeot 3008
In the first of a new series, Maarten Baljet looks at how popular fleet cars are when it comes to resale.
What the manufacturer said at launch:
The Peugeot 3008 SUV is looking to make a considerable impact in the ever-expanding SUV C market segment, offering an attractive and distinctive style with class-leading technology, especially including the new generation digital PEUGEOT i-Cockpit for high-tech comfort and security features. A range of powerful, efficient engines combines with well-specified models – including the sporty GT and GT Line versions.
What BF Forecasts say now:
Slowly but steadily Peugeot is beginning to show a very convincing design. The 3008 in particular, has become a very elegant yet sporty kind of car. Compared to its predecessor, which was more of an acquired taste, the new 3008 proves that good design and success in the showroom very often go hand in hand. This is one of the reasons for the improving residual value. If the quality keeps up with the main competitors, then Peugeot’s new design line will be a long-term success. Using the installed multi-media and sat nav equipment though, is still far from being intuitive.
About the residual value grades
The residual value grades assess the residual value performance of the car model in question. Additional to the grades, a short statement addresses some of the car’s characteristics or other factors, which are relevant to its residual value performance.
The residual value grades are calculated according to their residual value percentages and the monetary depreciation within three years after the purchase as a new car, considering a common mileage for the respective segment. The performance is put in relation to the residual value performance of competitor models.
