Dressed all in black this heavily disguised MPV is actually Peugeotís forthcoming 3008, undergoing secret hot-weather testing in the middle of nowhere.

Drawing styling cueís from its bigger brother the 4007, the 3008 will be based on the 308ís platform and will be Peugeotís long-overdue rival, looking to take on Renaultís Scenic and the VW Touran. The people carrier will also feature a number of novel design and packaging ideas to set it apart from its competitors along with a mean front grille.

Features will include sliding doors and seven-seater functionality. There will also be a host of safety extras such as tyre pressure sensors, audible passenger seatbelt warnings and a hands free Bluetooth wireless phone kit as well as a higher roof too.

Peugeot are currently working on a new-generation of petrol and HDI engines for the 3008. Customers will also be able to choose between two and four-wheel-drive versions, with base models front-drive only, to keep emissions and fuel consumption down.

The newcomer will go on Sale in the UK in 2010.
