It's an all-Peugeot affair this week, with reports of a more powerful 208 GTi followed by the hero 308 R concept, and now news of key updates to the company's people-moving 5008 and 3008 models.

That's not even the end of it; Peugeot has also revealed a new hybrid version of its light 208 hatch, bound for next month's Frankfurt Motor Show.

Unlike the diesel-electric Hybrid4 system featured in other Peugeot and Citroen models, the 208 Hybrid FE pairs its electric motor with a 1.2 litre petrol engine.

Full details are still to come, although Peugeot says it is aiming for a fuel consumption figure in the neighbourhood of 2.0 l/100km, and carbon emissions are pegged at 49g/km.

Peugeot also promises a 0-100km/h time of eight seconds flat.

The Hybrid FE's impressive fuel estimate is thanks also to composite materials used in the concept's construction, cutting weight by a substantial 20 percent.

The hatch's drag coefficient has also been improved by 25 percent, Peugeot says, thanks again to unique body enhancements.

Aero improvements include deleting the side mirrors, replacing the door handles, closing up gaps, bolting on some sleeker wheels and completely redesigning the rear-end.

Watch for the Hybrid FE to debut at Frankfurt next month.

 

5008 And 3008 Updates

Peugeot's new family face is quickly making its way across the range, debuting on a number of new models - and now more than a few older offerings.

The light 208 hatch was among the first to get the new look, along with the larger 4008 SUV, upcoming 2008 crossover and small 308 hatch.

The familiar RCZ coupe was given a makeover this year, and now it's time for the 3008 SUV and the 5008 people-mover to take a turn.

Revealed today, both family wagons wear new headlights, made slightly sharper than before and styled more in-line with the indented look of Peugeot's latest models.

The brand's new grille design also now dominates the face of both cars, marking a major upgrade to the 5008 in particular.

There's also brand-new bumper designs at both ends and refreshed tail-lights, along with key touch-ups in the cabin.

Australia

The updated 5008 is expected to hit Australia around March or April next year, followed by a mid-year local debut for the 3008.
