The front LED head lights have also been redesigned to be more aggressive with an extended light signature. At the rear, new and upgraded tail-lights feature full LED technology with Peugeot’s iconic three-claw light signature and scrolling indicators.
Those lights are also covered with a clear, smoked glass, and extend the black boot lid on each side of the vehicle, helping to visually widen the SUV’s rear.
