Following in the footsteps of Peugeot’s other GT packages that have been available for other models, the 3008 GT gets a boosted engine and a number of sporty cosmetic highlights.

In the engine compartment sits a 2.0-litre turbo-diesel four-cylinder producing a 133kW and 400Nm, hooked up to a six-speed automatic transmission. This is the most powerful BlueHDi engine in the range.

To help distinguish the GT, the exterior gets 19-inch two-tone alloy wheels, flared wheel arches, LED headlights and taillights, and special paint options with a two-tone roof.

The GT-Line brings a similar array of visual enhancements as the GT, only it’s only available with the lower-powered engine packages. Even still, it comes with full LED lights, the GT grille, and a Black Diamond roof as standard. Instead of the 19-inch wheels it comes with similarly-styled 18-inch two-tone items.
