Awarded Car of the Year (Best Large SUV) by What Car?, the new Peugeot 5008 is an impressive automotive specimen. Big, bold, versatile and very spacious, this SUV is one of the very best of its kind.
The Peugeot 5008 is available in Active, Allure, GT Line and GT trim levels, each offering terrific customisation potential. One of this SUV’s foremost features is its flexibility; it possesses seven individual seats, making it ideal for large families. The second row slides forwards and backwards too – enabling enhanced accessibility – and they also tilt and recline individually. The rearmost row can be stored beneath the boot floor – or removed entirely. When the third row is lowered, the 5008’s load space stands at an impressive 702 litres; with the second row additionally folded, cargo capacity extends to a cavernous 1,940 litres.
Front-row travellers benefit from height-adjustable seating, and the driver can truly get comfortable thanks to the car’s reach-and-rake-adjustable steering wheel. The latter is multifunctional too.
A range of standard features include electric front and rear windows and automatic dual-zone climate control, and Peugeot’s desirable i-Cockpit. The latter includes a 12.3-inch head-up digital instrument display – and an eight-inch touchscreen that uses Mirror Screen technology to replicate your smartphone’s display (with Android Auto or Apple CarPlay). You can enjoy your favourite tunes too, thanks to a six-speaker sound system that includes DAB radio and AUX, USB and Bluetooth connectivity.
The 5008 SUV has been awarded Euro NCAP’s maximum five-star crash test rating, and comes with an array of driver aids and passive safety features. Included are Anti-lock Braking System, Lane Departure Warning System and Automatic Emergency Braking. The latter significantly reduces the risk of low-speed impact, and automatically activates hazard lights whenever heavy braking pressure is applied. Rear parking sensors and multiple airbags feature too – as do ISOFIX seat mounts and tamper-proof rear doors and windows that help to keep younger travellers secure.
