Peugeot is on fire. First they showed the 308 R, then the 3008, after that the 208 Hybrid FE, and now they revealed the facelifted 5008. The biggest changes happened on the front of this compact MPV, which now follows the same design language used by more recent models of the French car manufacturer, like the 208 and 308.
