Australian pricing and specification details for the 2021 Peugeot 3008 have been announced, with the updated mid-size SUV now on sale.

Peugeot's mid-size SUV has undergone a facelift for 2021, with the 3008 gaining an updated look in line with Peugeot's newer models (including 'claw' daytime-running light and tail-light designs), upgraded interior technologies and, by the end of 2021, the option of plug-in hybrid power.

Three model grades will be offered: Allure, GT and GT Sport. Prices range from $44,990 to $54,990 before on-road costs, with the only price rise across the entire range comprising a $1000 increase for the entry-level model.

Opening the range is the aforementioned Allure, priced from $44,990 before on-road costs.

Standard equipment on the 'base' model includes 18-inch alloy wheels, LED headlights and tail-lights, a 10-inch central touchscreen with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, digital radio and 3D satellite navigation, a 12.3-inch 'i-Cockpit' digital instrument cluster, keyless entry, push-button start, automatic dual-zone climate control, 'Colyn' fabric/faux leather upholstery, and manual front seat adjustment.

There's also a 'compact' leather-wrapped steering wheel, puddle lights, front and rear parking sensors, a 360-degree camera, an auto-dimming rear-view mirror, privacy glass, wireless smartphone charging, power-folding door mirrors, a power-operated hands-free tailgate, blue ambient cabin lighting, aluminium roof rails and a selection of drive modes.

Standard active safety features across the range include autonomous emergency braking with low-light pedestrian and cyclist detection, adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go, lane-keep assist, traffic-sign recognition, driver attention monitoring, blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert.

There's also semi-autonomous parking capabilities for 90-degree and parallel spaces, Road Edge Detection, auto high-beam assist, and six airbags.

All models offer 591 litres of boot space with the rear seats upright, expanding to 1670 litres with the second row folded. A full-size spare wheel is standard across the range.

Powering the 3008 Allure is a 1.6-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine, sending 121kW and 240Nm to the front wheels through a six-speed automatic transmission. It claims to consume 7.3 litres of fuel per 100km on the combined cycle.

Nestled in the middle of the range is the GT, priced from $47,990 before on-road costs with a petrol engine, or $50,990 before on-road costs with a diesel mill.

Two engine options are available with the mid-spec variant: the Allure's 121kW/240Nm 1.6-litre turbo petrol four-cylinder, or a 131kW/400Nm 2.0-litre turbo diesel four-cylinder, the latter driving the front wheels through an eight-speed automatic.

Fuel economy is rated at 7.0L/100km and 5.0L/100km for the petrol and diesel options respectively.

Additional equipment over the base Allure includes adaptive LED headlights with 'Fog Mode', Alcantara and faux leather upholstery, a GT-badged steering wheel, black headlining, aluminium sill plates, a frameless rear-view mirror, a Diamond Black roof, black mirror caps, a sports front bumper design, unique 18-inch alloy wheels, and dual exhaust outlets.

Diesel-powered GT models also gain lane-centring assist, and an automatic restart function for the adaptive cruise control system. On the contrary, GT models lose the Allure's hill-descent control and quartet of off-road driving modes (reverting back to just Normal, Eco and Sport).

All GT buyers can optional an unnamed $3590 package, which adds nappa leather trim, heated front seats, and an eight-way power-adjustable driver's seat with massaging and two-position memory.

A dual-pane sunroof can be had for an extra $1990, which also incorporates the Peugeot logo into the puddle light projection feature.

Sitting atop the range is the GT Sport, priced from $54,990 before on-road costs.

Powering the flagship variant is a powered-up 1.6-litre turbo petrol four-cylinder, sending 133kW and 250Nm to the front wheels through an eight-speed automatic transmission. Combined claimed fuel economy sits at 5.6L/100km.

The GT Sport adds the contents of the GT's $3590 optional package as standard, plus a 10-speaker Focal premium sound system, 19-inch black alloy wheels and the Black Pack, which includes a black finish for the exterior badging, front and rear bumper trim, roof rails and side door trim, as well as darker window surrounds and a dark chrome front grille.

The sole equipment option on the flagship model is the aforementioned sunroof, priced at $1990.
