The 5008 SUV is Peugeot’s ultimate family model for more reasons than its generous amount of space. Safety and efficiency are two more of its strengths, while the driving experience is engaging and enjoyable even on longer trips.
Style hasn’t been substituted for practicality on the 5008 SUV'S exterior. The front face is a Peugeot signature with its centrally-mounted daytime running lights above a deep and wide upper grille.
Sculptured headlamps sit on each side of a folded bonnet and above front fog lights. Alloy wheels are another functional feature that look great too. Active is the entry-level model which includes Peugeot’s Visibility Pack at no extra cost. The package fits automatic headlights and wipers that keep the windows clear and the path ahead fully illuminated.
Cloth trim and a leather steering wheel feel durable and well-crafted to the touch inside the MPV. You sit higher above the road in your seat and therefore have an excellent view of other vehicles and all surroundings. From here you can easily see the instruments behind the wheel, and operate the functions on the centre console. The interior holds up to seven, and its flexibility is why so many families choose the 5008. Every seat except for the driver’s folds flat to offer a wide range of seating combinations. Handy storage areas, such as under the floor and in the doors, hide items away from view.
The technology that Peugeot has fitted within the 5008 SUV keeps you entertained and up to speed with your peers as you drive. The standard infotainment system comprises DAB radio with full mirror link connectivity.. A hands-free Bluetooth® kit also features for receiving calls without lifting a finger from the wheel. Built-in satellite navigation is standard on the Allure grade and above..
The four engine options in the 5008 range comprise one petrol and three diesels. The petrol is a 1.2-litre PureTech producing 129bhp and 230Nm of torque at 1,750rpm which keeps it lively and responsive. Innovative engineering lowers the weight of the engine block, and direct fuel injection alongside it results in efficient output. Two 1.6-litre BlueHDi diesel units and a 2.0-litre BlueHDi complete the collection, the largest being the most frugal. When energy-saving 17-inch wheels are fitted the powertrain returns up to 68.9mpg combined. It emits 108g/km of CO2 at the same time, and hits 60mph from zero in under ten seconds.
Safety remains an area of focus for Peugeot no matter what the model. In wet weather or when loose surfaces are encountered the Electronic Stability Programme (ESP) with traction control keeps the MPV balanced and helps it to grip when it really needs to. An Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) with Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD) and Brake Assist (BA) deliver controlled stopping in any situation. The second row includes three ISOFIX child seat mounts to secure younger passengers, and everyone is protected by a SMART airbag system.
