2017 Peugeot 5008 - First Look
The brand new 2017 Peugeot 5008 upgrades its look to a fashionable and stylish SUV look and comes with I-Cockpit tech and seven seats as standard!
This looks set to rival the Nissan X-Trail and Renault Koleos.
Peugeot’s designers have given the car a more muscular-looking exterior by using an upright front grille and harder-edged rear and strong door lines to create very different styling from the outgoing model’s van-like silhouette.
Compared with the old car, the new 5008 has grown in length by 19cm and its wheelbase is 16.5cm longer, but it stands at an identical 1.64 metres tall with roof bars.
On the inside: There’s a significantly updated cabin, complete with Peugeot’s wraparound i-Cockpit, which adds a 12.3in TFT instrument display and 8.0in centre console touchscreen.
Rear passengers are given power sockets, blinds, trays on the back of the first-row seats, hooks and cupholders. Boot space can be maximised by removing the third-row seats. They weigh less than 11kg to make extraction easier.
There’s plenty of boot space with a max capacity of 1940 litres.
The smallest petrol, a 128bhp 1.2-litre, comes with a six-speed manual gearbox or a six-speed automatic. It’s joined by a 1.6-litre that produces 163bhp and is mated exclusively with the auto.
A LOT of goodness going on here!
