In 2009, the Peugeot 5008 made its debut – in MPV form. In 2017, the vehicle became an SUV and since then has enjoyed much critical acclaim.
In addition to scooping CCT100’s 'SUV of the Year' for 2018, the 5008 has been presented with the 'Best Large SUV' accolade at 2018’s WhatCar? Awards.
What is it that makes this SUV so special? Here, in no particular order, are just five reasons why you should consider the Peugeot 5008.
Not all SUVs offer a seven-seat capacity, but the 5008 does – and What Car? was impressed with the premium look and feel of the vehicle’s cabin too.
The 5008 boasts Peugeot’s ingenious i-Cockpit, which comes with an eight-inch touchscreen, a configurable 12.3-inch head-up digital display and compact multifunction steering wheel.
This Peugeot SUV is extremely practical. The middle row of seats folds and tilts individually – and slides backwards and forwards too.
With rearmost seats dropped, boot space stands at a very useful 952 litres – and the back row can also be moved entirely.The Peugeot 5008 is an agile performer that offers a driving experience that is akin to a regular car.
• A five-star Euro NCAP crash test rating is just the beginning of the 5008’s safety credentials. As well as driver aids such as Traffic Sign Recognition and Lane Departure Warning, this SUV boasts Autonomous Emergency Braking.
This important piece of technology has made a huge difference to road safety in recent years, by appreciably reducing the risk of low-speed collisions.
