Peugeot announces 3008 facelift

Peugeot has announced that it's to facelift its 3008 crossover.

The five-seat 3008 sits below the larger 5008 in Peugeot's range, and provides MPV-style practicality in a body whose styling is said to be influenced by 4x4s.

The model has proven reasonably popular, with over 500,000 sold worldwide, and 56,000 in the UK alone.

Peugeot says the 3008 has been comprehensively restyled, and equipment levels have received a boost too.

It also adds that it's dropped pricess across the range.

New models will benefit from a more emphatic grille treatment, and the whole front end will get extra splashes of chrome.

Headlights will feature a new 'LED signature', and higher-level models will get Xenon headlamps as standard.

At the back, new light clusters with a dark tint and LED elements have been specified.

The range's specification as a whole has been improved, too, with Bluetooth connectivity now standard on every model. A new reversing camera is now available on the top-end Allure model, too.

Full-colour imagery has also been added to the head-up display.

But Peugeot hasn't just added new toys to the 3008 – it's also reduced prices. The price of the Access trim has been cut by £650, while an Active costs £550 less, and you'll now pay £150 less for the Allure model.

The same range of engines is available as before, topped with the HYbrid4 diesel hybrid setup that offers drivers the ability to choose between 200bhp performance, and 88g/km emissions.

The HYbrid4 also offers four-wheel-drive and zero-emission electric modes.

The facelifted 3008 range will go on sale in January 2014.
