The French car manufacturer has refreshed the crossover, with the model now offering greater levels of equipment while also featured an enhanced appearance.

Furthermore, prices across the 3008 range have been lowered, which makes the model even better value for money.

Upon its arrival at the start of next year, Peugeot will offer the world’s first diesel/electric powertrain in a crossover, called ‘HYbrid4′.
