At this year’s Peugeot Media Night organised by Nasim, the company announced plans to introduce five new models come 2017 – the 208 and 2008 facelifts, second-generation 3008 and 5008, as well as the Traveller MPV.

The first two models have already landed in Malaysia, with both being previewed in Malaysia recently, as well as at the event mentioned above. Both will receive a fair bit of visual changes, as well as the new 1.2 litre PureTech engine with 112 PS and 205 Nm, together with an Aisin six-speed automatic transmission.

Meanwhile, the arrival of the all-new 3008 was made known to us during the media drive of the SUV in Bologna, Italy. Sitting on the EMP2 platform, the 3008 now sports a more conventional SUV look and comes with an increase in both wheelbase and overall length.

Inside, the 3008 features the latest representation of the French automaker’s i-Cockpit dashboard design, with plenty of new materials and trim in tow. No indication on what will power the SUV once it comes to Malaysia, but the 1.6 litre THP S&S and six-speed auto combo is a high likelihood.

The larger 5008 meanwhile, loses its MPV status, and is now full-fledged seven-seater SUV. Unlike its smaller sibling, the C-segment SUV is about the length of the current T32 Nissan X-Trail, but has a massive wheelbase measuring 2,840 mm, 135 mm more than the Japanese SUV.

Peugeot’s i-Cockpit also makes its appearance here, with the kit list likely to include an eight-inch touchscreen and a 12.3-inch high-res digital head-up display. Another adopter of the EMP2 platform, the car is available with a range of diesel and petrol engines in other markets, although it remains to be seen what we will get here.

Finally, the biggest of the bunch, the Traveller MPV could arrive as a locally-assembled (CKD) model, which we have reported on in the past. The European alternative to the Toyota Alphard/Vellfire also rides on the EMP2 platform, and there are three lengths available – 4.60m Compact, 4.95m Standard and 5.30m Long.

Offering up to nine seats, there’s also a “Business VIP” layout that has four face-to-face seats with individual leather chairs. Creature comforts include tri-zone climate control, ambient lighting and hands-free sliding doors

The big Peugeot is available with five BlueHDi diesel engines in Europe, putting out between 95 hp and 180 hp, with six-speed auto and manual transmissions. There are no petrol engines in the range for now.
