the new Peugeot 5008 is the first SUV to offer modularity on a par with that of the best people-carriers
The all-new Peugeot 5008 breaks new ground as a large seven-seater SUV in the C segment. As a new contender in this growing consumer market, it boasts many strengths. The all-new Peugeot 5008 SUV includes the latest digital version of the outstanding Peugeot i-Cockpit®, Efficient Modular Platform 2 (EMP2), and a plethora of high-tech features that enhance comfort and safety. Behind the elegant, dynamic design lies a superbly practical vehicle. With seven seats, the new Peugeot 5008 is the first SUV to offer modularity on a par with that of the best people-carriers. A range of powerful, efficient engines and designs - including sporty GT Line and GT versions - is available for the all-new Peugeot 5008 SUV, to be unveiled at the 2016 Paris Motor Show before its launch in Spring 2017.
The all-new Peugeot i-Cockpit® elevates the passenger compartment
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” touchscreen dashboard and a spectacular 12.3” high-resolution digital head-up display, the new Peugeot i-Cockpit® impresses drivers with its superior graphics and elegant animations.
Spacious interior and with more functions
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 Peugeot 5008 SUV - though 19cm longer than the all-new Peugeot 3008 SUV and 11cm longer than the original 5008 - is still one of the most conservatively proportioned and its extra length makes it roomier for passengers.
The vehicle’s optimised architecture is only part of the package on offer. The new Peugeot 5008 is more than just an SUV. It stands out in the market with an innovative configuration:
• Three matching, separate, folding seats in the second row, adjustable in length and inclination
• Two removable, separate, folding seats in the third row.
• The biggest boot capacity with 780 dm3 VDA 210 (1060 litres)
The all-new Peugeot 5008 SUV can also have foldable front passenger seat (to carry especially long loads up to 3.20m) and a practical hands-free motorised tailgate.
An SUV with an imposing exterior
One look will recognise 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 (1.64m 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.
Driving and travelling pleasure that rivals the best touring vehicles
The all-new 5008 SUV, the 308 and the all-new 3008 SUV all feature the Efficient Modular Platform 2 (EMP2) and the very latest Euro 6.1 powertrains.
