2021 Peugeot 3008 pricing and specs detailed: Toyota RAV4, Mazda CX-5 and Volkswagen Tiguan rival scores fresh look, new flagship grade

The new 2021 Peugeot 3008 can be distinguished by its new front fascia, sporting LED headlights and a frameless grille.

Peugeot has let slip pricing for its facelifted 3008 ahead of its Australian showroom introduction shortly.

Now available in four forms, the opening 2021 3008 is now priced at $44,990 before on-road costs, a modest $1000 increase over last year’s base grade.

The mid-tier GT-Line is now gone, replaced instead by two GTs – one petrol and one diesel – priced at $47,990 and $50,990 respectively.

Topping the 2021 range is a new GT Sport variant, priced at $54,990.

Underpinning the Allure and petrol GT is a carryover 1.6-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine, producing 121kW/240Nm, matched to a six-speed automatic that drives the front wheels.

The diesel GT meanwhile uses a 131kW/400Nm 2.0-litre turbocharged engine, mated to an eight-speed auto.

The top-spec GT Sport though, is petrol only, and is powered by a new-to-Australia 1.6-litre unit that ups the ante to 133kW/250Nm paired with an eight-speed automatic.

Specifications for each grade are yet to be detailed, but all 2021 Puegeot 3008s wear a new-look front fascia with LED headlights and a frameless grille.

Tail-lights have also been updated to LEDs with a unique ‘tiger’s claw’ design, and it is expected the top-spec GT Sport grade will be adorned with a black roof and wheels to contrast the body colour.

Inside, the new 3008 will feature Peugeot’s signature i-Cockpit layout, consisting of a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, and steering wheel with flat top and bottom.

A 10.0-inch multimedia touchscreen is also fitted in the updated SUV, up from last year’s 8.0-inch unit.

A full gamut of advanced driver safety system is also expected to be included, extending to autonomous emergency braking (AEB) with pedestrian and cyclist detection, lane-keep assist, adaptive cruise control, and traffic sign recognition.

Though overseas markets gain access to two plug-in hybrid powertrains, Australia’s line-up will remain unelectrified for now.

Peugeot has also released pricing for its updated larger seven-seater 5008 SUV, which is available in GT trim in petrol and diesel forms for $51,990 and $59,990 respectively.

Full specifications on the 3008 range are expected soon, while the Peugeot mid-size SUV is due to touch down on local soil in the first quarter of 2021.
