Peugeot has given its most important and best-selling model a new look for 2021.

    The 2021 Peugeot 3008, on sale now, wears a striking new face almost identical to that of the its stretched, seven-seat 5008 sibling.

    A plug-in hybrid version is coming later in 2021, but the updated range will launch with petrol and diesel power only.

    The base price has increased by $1000 to $44,990 before on-road costs, while at the opposite end of the range there’s a new GT Sport flagship.

    It features a more powerful version of Peugeot’s turbocharged 1.6-litre four-cylinder engine with 133kW of power and 250Nm of torque, up 12kW and 10Nm on the standard mill.

    The GT Sport also features a black exterior pack plus larger, 19-inch alloy wheels.

    There’s an intricate new grille plus plunging, fang-like LED daytime running lights and indicators, much like those on the redesigned 2008.

    The strip lights also include a Fog Mode, which replaces conventional fog lights.

    Peugeot says that by activating the fog lights, the strip lights integrate with the LED headlights to illuminate the low-beam lights at a lower intensity.

    The tail lights are now entirely LED and feature dynamic indicators and feature a smoked finish so they blend in with the horizontal black trim panel.

    Inside, there’s a 10.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system and a high-mounted 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, part of what Peugeot calls its digital i-Cockpit.

    The 3008 is an important model for Peugeot, especially in Australia.

    Last year, Peugeot sold 881 examples of the 3008 locally, or three times as many vehicles as Peugeot’s next best-seller.
