Pugeot_3008&5008Peugeot Australia has launched 100 Crossway SUVs. Sixty of them 3008s and 40, 5008s. Their biggest feature is a Premium Focal 10-speaker audio system with subwoofer, more about it in a moment.

They also have a black diamond roof, chrome pack and full Alcantara trim with emerald stitching. The 5008 gets Crossway floor mats, though the 3008 misses out on these.

Externally these 3008 and 5008 SUVs have Crossway badging and a Crossway B-pillar motif.

Now to the audio setup: Focal, with more than 35 years of audio experience, came in at the vehicle development stage to work side-by-side with Peugeot engineers designing audio systems that made best use of the 3008 and 5008’s cabins.

The SUV’s interiors feature door mouldings, floor mats, cabin materials and floor construction around the sub-woofer designed to specifically maximise the performance of the Focal system.


The Focal system has a 12-way audio system developing 515 Watts of power delivered through four, inverted, 35mm tweeters, four 165mm mid-range woofers, a 80mm bespoke Polyglass membrane centre speaker and a 200mm woofer with Focal’s proprietary PowerFlower technology.
