Compact crossover SUVs have enjoyed fame in Pakistan, Pakistan has seen many manufacturers launching their own SUV and Peugeot is in the field with Peugeot 3008 crossover SUV that will compete with Hyundai Tuscon, Proton X70, KIA Sportage, and few others. 3008 will have a night vision camera, off-road settings, an automated braking system, Hill descent control, and some very cool and advanced features.
Adding to the list, Pakistan is likely to see the Peugeot 5008 too and this vehicle will target the limited market as the Pakistani market for 7-seaters is quite limited.
