Peugeot 3008 and 5008 SUVs update

Peugeot Australia has released makeovers of their medium sized 3008 and 5008 SUV models with new styling   features, a bit more technology and additional safety features as they drive to move their image upmarket.

2021 Peugeot 5008 GT.

The 3008 is the most striking with the front grille being less of the typical SUV get-out-of-my-way aggression.

Inside the latest digital i-cockpit dashboard which can be customize to some degree, and piano-like key switches slightly angled toward the driver give you a feeling of sitting at a control panel of a quite advanced bit of machinery.
