Peugeot’s largest SUV has a bold new face that brings it in line with its smaller siblings.
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.
There’s also an intricate new grille.
The tail lights are now entirely LED and feature dynamic indicators, with their smoked finish allowing them to blend in with the black exterior trim.
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.
Under the touchscreen is a row of metal-look toggle switches.
There’s a seemingly simple, two-model range: one with a petrol, one with a diesel.
However, while both are badged GT, the diesel has a raft of additional features.
