New Peugeot 5008 SUV Adds Bold New Design, More Technology

The new PEUGEOT 5008 SUV will feature a new look, more technology and class-leading driver assistance systems when it arrives showrooms in the coming months, the French manufacturer, Groupe PSA has revealed.

In a statement on Thursday, the auto maker stressed that the new 5008 SUV is featuring new trim levels and a new ‘Black Pack’ for improved customization.

With the new 5008 SUV, PEUGEOT continues its commitment to instinctive design. The front end of the new 5008 SUV has been redesigned with a new frameless grille, while gloss black side scoops and a painted tread plate are integrated into the new bumper design. Top of the range GT and GT Premium models feature their own unique grilles to help them stand out further.

The new 5008 SUV also features new front lights with a more purposeful look, and every trim level will feature LED light technology. GT and GT Premium models feature Full LED headlights with a new ‘Fog Mode’ function that replaces conventional fog lights.

At the rear, new upgraded taillights feature full LED technology with PEUGEOT’s iconic three-claw rear light signature and sequential indicator lights. The new lights are covered with a clear, smoked glass finish that extends the black boot lid on each side of the vehicle.

The new SUV comes with PEUGEOT’s next-generation digital i-Cockpit that features a fully customisable 12.3-inch digital instrument display, a compact steering wheel for improved driving dynamics and a new 10-inch high-definition colour touchscreen.

Owners can customise the 12.3-inch digital display in front of them to show everything from navigation directions to important vehicle information. The central display also shows drivers the selected Drive Mode, which owners can choose from the Drive Mode Selector on the centre console. Drivers have a choice between Normal, Sport and Eco modes.

The new 10-inch capacitive colour touchscreen comes with seven elegant piano ‘toggle switches’ providing direct access to main control functions, including the radio, Connected 3D Navigation and vehicle settings.

Owners are also treated to new interior trims inside the new 5008 SUV. The following new trims are available across specific trim models:

The new 5008 SUV also features a new ‘Frameless’ rear view mirror on GT and GT Premium.

With three rows of seats accommodating up to seven people, the interior of the new 5008 SUV is both practical and versatile. Boot space ranges from 780-litres to 1,940-litres. The middle row features three individual and fully adjustable seats, which feature reclining backrests and can be fully folded. The two seats in the third row can be fully folded and removed, while the front passenger seat can be tipped forward so objects as long as 3.20m can be loaded into the new 5008 SUV.

The new 5008 SUV comes with class-leading levels of driver assistance and safety technology. For the first time, the new 5008 SUV is available with Night Vision – unique in its segment.

Using infrared technology, pedestrians and animals detected ahead of the vehicle are highlighted on the 12.3-inch digital instrument display, up to 200m outside the scope of the headlights, ensuring safety even in total darkness.

The new 5008 SUV also comes with Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Stop & Go on models equipped with the EAT8 automatic gearbox. The clever technology is able to bring the vehicle to a complete stop and move away from stationary without any driver input, in stop-start traffic. Lane Position Assist, which is linked to the ACC helps ensure the new 5008 SUV stays safely centred within its lane. Both technologies are available as part of the Drive Assist Plus Package.

Owners also benefit from the latest-generation Automatic Emergency Braking technology that works at speeds from 3mph to 86mph (where legal).

From Active Premium onwards, all new 5008 SUV models feature Apple CarPlay™, Android Auto™ and MirrorScreen technology for the ultimate in smartphone compatibility. Passengers also benefit from two new USB sockets in the second row, providing enhanced convenience. For the ultimate in sound quality, the new 5008 SUV is available with a 515 Watt FOCAL® High-End HiFi system.

The new 5008 SUV is available with PEUGEOT’s latest and most efficient petrol and diesel engines, with CO2 emissions as low as 132g/km for the most efficient models.
