Snapped here undergoing secret cold-weather testing in the middle of nowhere, the Peugeot 3008 will be the company's long-overdue answer to the Renault Scenic, Citroen Picasso and Volkswagen Touran, but will feature a number of novel design and packaging ideas to set it apart.

The Peugeot 3008 MPV with sliding doors is planned with full seven-seater functionality and a higher roof.
