The facelift for one of the most successful SUVs built by Peugeot was revealed in late 2020: the 3008 received an important refresh, even if the 2016 model didn’t look bad at all.
The 2016 Peugeot 3008 won the “Car of The Year” award in Europe. It was that kind of a mix between comfort, room, exterior dimensions, and fuel-efficiency that brought it to the light. On top of that, a futuristic (for that era) instrument cluster and a low driving position made it a great choice, even if the underpinnings were based on the Peugeot 308 model.
In 2020, the cross-over was refreshed with a new design for the front grille, and a more powerful look for its headlights. A specific element was the light strip that went down from the LED headlights to the apron. It mimicked a fang of a lion, the French’ brand logo. The bumper was reshaped and it gained two side-scoops, in front of the wheels. The sculptured front fenders were modified as well. In the back, the taillights were changed to a full LED lamps system, including the reversing lights.
Inside, the 3008 stunned the world with its i-Cockpit instrument cluster back in 2016, when it was launched. It was enhanced with a new graphic and new options for the 2020 model year. The infotainment unit featured a 10” high-definition display, placed on top of the center stack. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, in some countries, the 3008 was available for completely online purchase and delivery.
The 3008 was available with a choice of gasoline, diesel, and hybrid systems. The hybrid version was the only one that offered an all-wheel-drive system.
