  • Active Premium + is now entry trim level
  • Changes across the hybrid, petrol, and diesel powertrains
  • Available to order now

Peugeot has introduced a new trim level for both the Peugeot 3008 and Peugeot 5008 SUVs. The changes discontinue the Allure trim and upgrade the Active Premium and Allure Premium to Active Premium + and Allure Premium +, while GT and GT Premium specifications are unchanged. 

The alterations mean the 3008 SUV is now a more attractive proposition for buyers when compared to its rivals the MG HS, SEAT Ateca, and Nissan Qashqai. It will also help the 5008 SUV stand out amongst a busy field of competitors that includes the popular Skoda Kodiaq and Kia Sorento.

The benefits of the new entry level Active Premium + trim include an aluminium styling pack for the door sills and pedals, and on the Peugeot 3008  also include 18-inch ‘Detroit’ alloy wheels in a diamond-cut grey finish. Aluminium roof rails and rear window tints are also included on both the 3008 and 5008 SUVs. Stepping up to the Allure Premium + adds a contrasting black roof to further enhance the car’s styling.

Buyers interested in the Peugeot 3008 Hybrid will also be offered the Active Premium + entry specification, adding a wider range of trim choices and a lower entry point to the electrified version. The Hybrid’s Active Premium + is even better equipped than the petrol and diesel, coming with ‘Colyn’ and ‘Mint Green’ interior stitching, adjustable driver’s seat lumbar support, and a frameless rear view mirror. It also gets upgraded technology, thanks to a 10-inch touch screen with voice control, and advanced emergency braking.

Mechanical changes are limited to Peugeot’s decision to discontinue the manual gearbox previously offered. Both the 3008 and 5008 will get an automatic transmission as standard, due to dwindling customer demand for a manual gearbox.

Buyers may find the new trims all the more enticing as prices are unchanged across almost the entire range. The single difference is an increase of £110 on the list price of the 1.2-litre 130bhp petrol engine models. Order books are open now, and the Peugeot 3008 and 5008 start from £31,035, and £33,500 respectively.
