Peugeot Malaysia has just posted a teaser on its Facebook page, showing a headlamp with the caption: “Something new is coming to town. Peugeot fans, stay tuned!”
The headlamp in question looks pretty similar to the one found on the just-launched Peugeot 3008 Facelift (see our full report and live showroom gallery of the crossover) at first glance, but since that car is already out, our attention turned to the Peugeot 5008 Facelift, whcih has been spotted roaming the city.
First seen last year, the 5008 MPV gets a facelift similar in style to the 3008, bringing the duo in-line with the current family look pioneered by the current 508. The new mug sports a large grille with the “Peugeot” script on the top border, plus long and sharp claw-like headlamp clusters.
The 5008 was launched in Malaysia at KLIMS 2010. It is powered by a 1.6 litre THP twin-scroll turbocharged direct-injection engine with 156 hp and 240 Nm of torque, mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. The seven-seater currently retails for RM159,888 OTR with insurance.
