The total length of the car will be 4.7 meters and will be offered with petrol and diesel engines, and in a diesel-electric hybrid version which will be the only one that will have all wheel drive, with the electric motor positioned on the rear axle.
In Europe, the diesel-hybrid version will use the HDi engine with 163 hp and in combination with the electric motor, the performance will be at 200 hp, same as the 3008 Hybrid4. Also the DSX will use the 1.6 THP petrol engine with 243 bhp.
