The Peugeot 5008 was renewed, but -in essence- kept the value of one of the most attractive premium 7-seater on the market constant.
New Peugeot 5008 he is not just his “big” brother popular 3008but also an important sentence in a category that is hard to find one modern and premium model. In fact, add to that the dynamic design, the innovative and sophisticated i-Cockpitdistinguished engines and rich equipment.
What has really changed in the new 5008 compared to the outgoing generation?
The renewal -as in 3008- brings a more aggressive mask, which gives intense… mobility even when the car is stationary. Now, the special configuration of the mask occupies an even larger surface and in particular it reaches even the new -blowed- luminaires. The daytime running lights in a vertical arrangement, as well as the side… hacks, offer a special visual touch.
Internally, the cabin looks even more mature and quality with the familiar i-Cockpit layout in the foreground. Includes the small diameter steering wheel and 12.3 inches high mounted digital instrument panel. The top of the center console is dominated by a 10-inch touch screen, holding the same graphics layout, which implies the same software. We must add to its possibilities connectivity with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
The practicality of the 5008 is on another level. It can also be characterized as the “joy” of the head of the family (and not only). The impressive thing is that despite the external dimensions of the model, the interior can accommodate up to 7 passengers. Everyone has their place!
The second row of seats is divided into three independent sliding seats, which can accommodate -each of them- high chairs. In fact, if everything is pulled forward, then the luggage compartment has it excellent price of 1,060 liters. It makes sense for this price to be reduced if the two extra seats need to be “popped up” from the floor. It is worth noting that the seats can be removed to reduce the total weight.
The passengers of the 3rd row of seats they obviously do not have comfort with them in the second, but they can certainly find their place and will not complain for several kilometers. At the same time, the interior can be turned into a small stadium, if the second and third rows are folded revealing 2,150 liters. Also, the tables on the backs of the front seats and the shading curtains make our coexistence with the car even easier.
Under the hood is placed a fixed value, which sounds like 1.5 BlueHDi 130. The 4-cylinder diesel engine of 130 hp and 300 Nm of torque drives the big “lion” with dignity, while the 8-speed automatic transmission (EAT8) allows on the one hand the 7-seater model accelerate from a standstill to 100 km / h in 11.8 seconds… rest the driver. The gross consumption announced by the factory is 5.3 l / 100 km, something that in practice the diesel engine “burned” 1.4 liters more than the official price.
The correct adjustment of the suspensions make the French SUV a pleasant vehicle, ideal for long journeys, but also for your daily commutes.
A family SUV like this, it must be comfortable when rolling. The French have the know-how in this area, so it makes sense to apply it to the updated 5008 in the best way. There is no doubt that if you are looking -spatially- for comfort and a 7-seater SUV for your family, you will end up with the 5008. The convenience it offers is remarkable and for a model with premium features starting at 38,000 euros, the choice is…. one way!
