> Peugeot 3008 ‘facelifted’
> Minor styling updates
> Some new interior materials
> Prices start at £27,905
When we say the updates to the new Peugeot 3008 are minor, we’re not exaggerating. Perhaps that’s because Peugeot decided the ‘if it ain’t broke don’t fix it’ policy is best - the 3008 is a good-looking SUV popular with a lot of people - but either way it’s hard to call this an update with a straight face.
Black gloss wing mirrors now come with all trim levels, including the bottom level Active Premium, which starts at £27,905. And…that’s it. Told you we weren’t exaggerating.
With a lot of facelifts the main changes happen inside the car, as infotainment tech and safety tech improves and gets updated. But, again, there’s not a whole lot to report with the 3008.
The GT Trim line now comes as standard with some fancy new material in places like the seats and steering wheel. The material in question is a ‘Belomka’ cloth with copper-coloured stitching. Elsewhere everything is the same, including the 10-inch infotainment system and 12-inch digital driver display.
Hybrid models aren’t so generous though, as space is eaten up by the battery and electric motors. If you buy a hybrid 3008 you’ll only get 395 litres of room in the trunk.
The engine line-up is still comprised of a 1.2-litre turbo petrol with 130hp or a 1.5-litre diesel good for the same 130hp. The plug-in hybrid uses a 1.6-litre engine with an electric motor which knocks out 225hp or 300hp.
You can get your orders in now for the ‘updated’ Peugeot 3008. Prices for the entry Active Premium with the 130hp petrol engine start at £27,095. For the 300hp AWD hybrid in GT trim you’ll pay £44,810.
