2021 Peugeot 3008, 5008 facelift launched in Malaysia – Allure only, 1.6 THP, CKD with more kit; from RM162k

Bermaz Auto Alliance (BAuto), the newly appointed sole distributor for the Peugeot brand in Malaysia, has launched its first two SUVs – the 3008 and 5008 facelift. Both models will be available in the sole Allure trim, with the 3008 priced at RM161,616 and the 5008 at RM177,311. Both prices are inclusive of the sales tax exemption, which has been extended to June 30, 2022.

Included in the price is a five-year or 100,000 km manufacturer’s warranty (whichever comes first), as well as three-year or 60,000 km free service maintenance. Three standard colours are available – Amazonite Grey, Pearl White and Nera Black. The fourth exclusive colours are Cuprite Brown for the 3008 and Emerald Crystal for the 5008 (both pictured above).

Both the 3008 and 5008 are produced locally by Stellantis at its newly acquired Gurun assembly plant (formerly Naza Automotive Manufacturing) in Kedah, and the cars are said to be built to Peugeot’s global quality standards. BAuto is only involved in distribution and aftersales, so all manufacturing operations are controlled by Stellantis.

Mechanically, the SUVs are set up exactly the same from before, so under the bonnet is a direct-injection 1.6 litre THP (Turbo High Pressure, not the newer PureTech mill) four-pot that generates 167 PS and 240 Nm of torque. A six-speed Aisin-made gearbox sends drive to the front wheels, and there is rotary dial (Advanced Grip Control) to choose between five traction modes, including Snow, Mud, and Sand.

New to the pair are of course the redesigned front fascia, featuring a more expressive frameless grille and reprofiled full LED lights (with auto high beam and 90-degree cornering function) with vertical LED DRLs. The 3008 and 5008 numerals on the bonnet is new, making them slightly more identifiable from the front.

Changes at the back are less extensive compared to the front, but new here are the full LED tail lights, replete with three-dimensional claws and sequential turn indicators. This is quite the upgrade from before, though it should be noted that there are no sequential indicators up front. Also standard are things like the height-programmable powered tailgate with a kick sensor, as well as six front and rear parking sensors.

Inside, the i-Cockpit consists of a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster that has been upgraded with slightly better graphics and contrast, as well as a wider 10-inch touchscreen display. The latter offers Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support, though this still requires a physical wired connection via a USB-A port. No new trim materials here, but it does come with new seat stitching, as well as a wireless charging tray for Qi compatible devices as standard.

Not much else is new besides the slightly expanded safety kit, which we’ll get to further below. Other standard interior features include a powered panoramic sunroof, dual-zone automatic climate control (5008 gains an additional blower control for the rear vents), electrochromic rear-view mirror, column-mounted paddle shifters, blue LED ambient lighting, and a cooled storage area within the centre armrest.

In case you don’t know the difference between the two, the 3008 is a five-seater SUV, whereas the 5008 seats seven (5+2, really) – much like the now-discontinued regular Tiguan and Tiguan Allspace. Boot space for the 3008 is 591 litres, whereas the 5008 boasts 952 litres of space with the third row folded flat.

For the safety features, both the 3008 and 5008 still miss out on key driving aids such as adaptive cruise control and autonomous emergency braking. There’s only blind spot monitoring, active lane keeping assist, driver attention warning, and hill descent control. Airbag count remains at six, and the wide-angle reverse camera is still painfully low-res as before.

So, what do you think of the updated French SUVs? Feel free to browse CarBase.my for a more detailed look at the pair’s equipment and specifications. You can also compare them against other vehicles of your choosing!

    Beautiful car but need to have lots of money & patience. The aftersales service are quite bad.. Parts also need to wait for a loooong time. After repair also still the same problem persist.. From a honest 208 owner.

    Heard the dealers are crying and it seems that the situation is worst with Bermaz now.

    Hope I’m wrong…

    Car look good, but safety tech very lacking….. most likely CRV and X70, CX5 will have better demand

    For the asking price Peugeot should have included AEB . Can be a deal breaker for some.

    Bermaz sell Mazda 5 years with only 100k km warranty is acceptable coz Mazda quality is great. But selling this Peugeot with same 100k km warranty is certainly not attractive at all. Merc 4 years, while BMW and VW offer 5 years with unlimited mileage but Peugeot 100k km warranty in 5 years looks weak.

    Kepada semua pengguna kereta Peugeot, terutamanya penguna kereta Peugeot 5008 keluaran 2020, saya perlukan bantuan dan sokongan anda kerana saya berasa sangat kecewa dan saya tak tahu apa lagi saya boleh buat.

    Untuk makluman semua, saya telah membeli kereta Peugeot 5008 yang baru, pada akhir tahun 2020. Tidak lama selepas itu, saya perasan ada masalah timbul pada kereta saya. Selepas memeriksa kereta saya dengan lebih teliti, saya mula sedar yang kereta ini tidak seperti disyorkan oleh Peugeot. Saya mencari kepada siapa saya perlu membuat aduan, lalu perkhidmatan pelanggan Bermaz Auto Alliance SB (BAASB) menjawab. Kemudiannya, pertanyaan-pertanyaan saya enggan dijawab dan tiada pihak dinamakan sebagai bertanggungjawap untuk menyelesaikan masalah saya, walaupun banyak kali bertanya. Akhirnya pihak BAASB memberitahu saya untuk menghubungi pengedar lama, iaitu Naza Group, kerana BAASB mengatakan mereka bukanlah pengedar bagi Peugeot semasa saya beli kereta saya itu. Apabila Naza Group dihubungi mengenai masalah saya, mereka pula menyatakan bukanlah mereka yang bertanggungjawab untuk menyelesaikan masalah saya. Pihak dari jenama Peugeot juga tidak tampil untuk menyelesaikan masalah ini. Saya rasa seperti masalah saya ditolak kesana kesini oleh semua pihak. Saya tidak tahu apa yang saya perlu buat lagi. Jadi, saya sedang mencari bantuan nasihat daripada sesiapa boleh tolong atau pernah mengalami masalah seperti ini.

    • Bagaimana kamu tahu bahawa Bermaz tak bertanggungjawab untuk menjaga Peugeot? Adakah kamu menceritakan kisah sendiri ke? Peugeot akan sentiasa memastikan servis center dan qc akan menjadi lebih baik lepas takeover oleh Bermaz dari Naza.

    So the earlier reported warranty period of 5+5 didn’t happened. Instead its 5 years warranty + 3 years free services.

    Better provide 7 years full manufacturer warranty to boost customer confidence as that is what everyone worried about when it come to French car. Reliability.
