The newly-launched 3008 facelift

Ever since the second-gen Peugeot 5008 was launched in 2017, more than 300,000 have been produced. Peugeot is also currently the European market leader in compact SUVs with the 5008 and 3008.

In front, there’s a new frameless grille that extends towards the fins under the headlamps. The nose of the bonnet now displays the model’s monogram, similar to the rest of the Peugeot range.

The front headlamps have also been redesigned to be more aggressive which are extended by hook-shaped DRLs with a chrome tip.

There are 3 trims available which are the Active, Allure, and GT, as well as intermediate trim levels called "Pack" which have additional features on top of the existing trim. The GT/GT Pack trims have specific grille designs and full LED headlamps.

At the back, the facelifted 5008 has new, upgraded taillamps with full LED technology, displaying 3D claws for a punchy light signature. The lights are covered with a clear, smoked glass that extends to the black boot lid.

The facelift 5008 also features an updated i-Cockpit instrument cluster which features a fully-customisable and configurable 12.3-inch digital display with “Normally Black” technology. This tech works in providing clearer readouts by contrasting them on a black background with the help of high-quality rendering.

On top of that, the central screen is now bigger at 10-inches compared to the pre-facelift’s 8-inch. It is compatible with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.

In terms of safety, the 5008 has adaptive cruise control, lane position assist, AEB, 360-degree camera, park assist, blind-spot monitor, and night vision. The latter is unique in its class and can detect up to 200-250 m at night or in reduced visibility.

There are four engine options available on the 5008 which are the 3-cylinder 1.2-litre PureTech, the 4-cylinder 1.6-litre PureTech, the 4-cylinder 1.5-litre BlueHDi, and the 2.0-litre BlueHDi. Unlike the 3008, there’s no hybrid option available.

The 2021 Peugeot 5008 facelift will be marketed in Europe at the end of 2020. Back home, the pre-facelift 5008 was launched by Nasim in 2018 with CKD units available from 2019. The local 5008 is powered by a 1.6-litre THP engine with 2 trim options, Allure and Active.

The facelift 5008 could probably arrive in Malaysia in late-2021 or early-2022.
