In 2016, Peugeot reinvented the 3008 as an SUV. It’s a move sure to improve the appeal of the model. This year it reinvents its seven-seat people carrier, the 5008, as a seven-seat SUV.
Visually similar to the 3008, the 5008 has a longer roof line to ensure it can accommodate passengers in the third row of seats and is 19cm longer than the 3008 overall.
Like the 3008, the 5008 will come with the latest version of Peugeot’s i-Cockpit configurable digital instrument display. The digital display is standard across the range and raised to a higher level than a conventional instrument panel, while the steering wheel is smaller and elliptical with a flatter top and bottom to improve steering feel and visibility.
Engines and transmissions will be shared with the 3008, including a 120PS 1.6 BlueHDi, and 150PS and 180PS 2.0 BlueHDi diesels. There will also be turbocharged 1.2 and 1.6-litre petrol engines. CO2 emissions for the 5008 start at 108g/km for diesel and 117g/km for petrol.
