The all-new Peugeot 5008 SUV is bound for official introduction soon at the Paris Motor Show. The new Peugeot 5008 SUV is expected to break new ground as a large seven-seater SUV in the C segment.
Tne look will recognize that the all-new Peugeot 5008 is a real SUV. All the hallmarks are there: long, horizontal bonnet; vertical face; and raised body line. The inspired design conveys power and respect. Its height remains the same (1.64 m with roof bars, standard on all models). This gives it a long and dynamic profile. At the front, the wide grille with chrome fins is exclusive, while the rear design features the gloss black strip and the signature LED ‘claw effect’ rear lights that set the latest breed of Peugeot SUVs apart.
The 2.84m wheelbase of the new 5008 SUV makes it the most liveable of C-segment SUVs. The overall length of the vehicle (4.64m) remains compact as the new 5008 SUV, though 19cm longer than the new 3008 SUV and 11cm longer than the original version of the 5008, is still one of the most conservatively proportioned and its extra length makes it roomier for passengers.
Inside, the driver’s environment is unique with the newest version of the innovative, almost futuristic, Peugeot i-Cockpit, which offers vehicle occupants a novel driving experience that both surprises and delights. With its compact steering wheel, a large 8-inch touchscreen dashboard and a spectacular 12.3-inch high-resolution digital head-up display, the Peugeot i-Cockpit impresses drivers with its superior graphics and elegant animations. The best in permanent connectivity is attributed to the Mirror Screen function and 3D connected navigation system.
In addition, the ample cabin space is fulfilled by three matching, separate, folding seats in the second row, adjustable in length and inclination two removable, separate, folding seats in the third row. The new SUV now offers the biggest boot capacity with 780 dm3 VDA 210 (1060 liters). Furthermore, the all-new 5008 SUV can also have foldable front passenger seat (to carry especially long loads up to 3.20 m) and a practical hands-free motorised tailgate. Major highlights include body-hugging front seats with an optional multipoint massage system, FOCAL Premium Hi-Fi system, large panoramic opening glass roof
The new 5008 SUV, the 308, and the new 3008 SUV all feature the Efficient Modular Platform (EMP2) and the very last Euro 6.1 powertrains. Whether the choice is petrol or diesel, all versions stand out above their competitors with engines of the same power class. CO2 emissions are as low as 115g/km for petrol and only 105g/km for diesel.
Cutting-edge Advanced Driver Assistance Systems make driving even safer with a comprehensive list of safety features (standard or optional, depending on market location specifications): Advanced Grip Control, Hill Assist Descent Control (HADC), Automatic Emergency Braking System (AEBS), Distance Alert, Active Lane Keeping Assistance (LKA), Driver attention warning, Smart Beam Assistance, Speed sign recognition and speed suggestion, Adaptive cruise control with stop feature (automatic gearbox), Active blind spot monitoring, Park Assist and Visio Park (360° vision).
The all-new Peugeot 5008 SUV is also providing innovative mobility solutions for today’s world by giving the opportunity to integrate in its boot the e-Kick, a very smart electrically assisted folding scooter, or the e-Bike eF01, a new electrically assisted portable bicycle. e-Kick and e-Bike have both their mobile charging dockstation (obviously only available for European markets).
