The 2016 Peugeot 3008 adopts a much bolder exterior with a taller ride height, upright nose, long clamshell bonnet, black plastic cladding and roof rails. The styling is a departure from the older MPV-esque predecessor. Some of the exterior features include a wide hexagonal grille, LED headlights and taillights, floating roofline and large 18-inch wheels.

Previewed by Peugeot’s i-Cockpit, the interior of the 3008 is a revolutionary step up from that of any Peugeot models currently sold. Few of the main highlights include a 12.3-inch high-res driver’s screen, an 8-inch freestanding touchscreen on the dashboard, and ‘piano key’ switches for various functions. It has a 520 liter boot capacity that can be increased to 1580 liters by folding the rear seats.
