Plusher trim sits below top spec GT.

The new Peugeot 3008 and 5008 SUV have proven popular in a highly competitive class. In fact, waiting lists for these car span months — something usually reserved for more premium manufacturers. New GT Line Premium trim aims to make this pair even more appealing.

Both the 3008 and 5008 come with impressive levels of standard equipment  an including 8-inch touchscreen display, Virtual Cockpit and dual zone air conditioning. GT Line trim adds a sporty touch whilst GT delivers on the toys, but what if you want something in-between. GT Line Premium splits the difference.

Costing from £28,590 on the 3008 or £30,565 for the 7-seat 5008, GT Line Premium brings added tech including keyless ignition and a foot-operated tailgate for when you have your hands full. Inside you’ll find a full length glass panoramic roof and a set of heated massaging front seats to make those lengthy journeys more palatable. Visually a set of 19-inch diamond-cut alloys fill the arches and add to the sporty bodywork found on regular GT Line.

The GT Line Premium trim also represents good value over speccing more equipment on the lesser GT Line car, doing so would cost over £2,700. That’s a saving of £595 for the 3008 and £870 on the equivalent 5008. Stepping up to the full-fat GT car would cost around £4k more than this new trim.

Engine choices range from a three cylinder 1.2-litre petrol to a 2.0-litre BlueHDi diesel. A new 1.5-litre diesel that claims up to 68.9mpg combined has been added to the range, replacing a 1.6-litre unit.

Mark Pickles, Peugeot marketing director said “From what we have seen of the impressive sales to date and recognition at industry awards, people are attracted by the diversity and quality of both the Peugeot 3008 SUV and all-new 5008 SUV. The broad range of features available on these two models have made them the astounding success they are and we want to ensure any customer can experience that.” This plush GT Line Premium trim reaffirms Peugeot’s push upmarket.
