Although unconfirmed, two of the SUVs are the second generation Peugeot 3008 and a new Peugeot 5008.

Of the three, two of the SUVs will be the second generation Peugeot 3008 and a new Peugeot 5008, reportedly. Speaking on the former, the next gen Peugeot 3008 will feature an exterior styling inspired by the Peugeot Quartz Concept, featuring sharp design lines that give it a new look.

The 2016 Peugeot 3008 will be based on the PSA Group’s EMP2 (Efficient Modular Platform 2) platform and the engine lineup could be sourced from the Peugeot 308, which include a PureTech 1.2L petrol and 1.6 HDi turbodiesel engine. The new 3008 is likely to make its world premiere at the 2016 Paris Motor Show in October.
