The new Peugeot 5008 has been unveiled with a new look, improve driver assistance systems and more technology.
The new Peugeot 5008 SUV is heading to our showrooms with new trim levels, more technology and an impressive new exterior look.
The distinctive design shows real intent by Peugeot to make an impact in the competitive segment with a new frameless grille, a painted tread plate and gloss black side scoops.
The range-toppers are the GT and GT Premium models which will have their own unique grilles so they stand-out from the crowd.
The new design also offers a purposeful look and includes new front lights, and every trim will have LED light technology.
There are also two new colour schemes available, and the cabin features the firm's next generation of their excellent digital i-Cockpit.
This incorporates a customisable 12.3-inch digital instrument display, a new 10-inch high-def colour touchscreen, and a compact steering wheel for better driving dynamics.
The digital display will show everything from important vehicle information to satnav directions.
The display also features the current selected driving mode, and there are three modes to choose from: Eco, Sport and Normal.
Beneath the 10-inch colour touchscreen are elegant piano switches to give access to the car's main control functions as well as the DAB radio, vehicle settings and satnav.
The interior for the top-end models of the Peugeot 5008 range feature a new frameless rearview mirror.
And the cabin of the Peugeot 5008 has room for up to seven people with three rows of seats.
It's still a versatile and practical offering - and a great SUV choice for anyone wanting a quality car to buy or lease - with the boot space offering 780-litres or, with the rear seats folded, 1,940-litres.
As mentioned, the new offering delivers improved safety and driver assistance technologies including, for the first time, night vision.
This will help detect animals and pedestrians in the dark by using infrared technology and anything found will be highlighted on the 5008's 12.3-inch digital instrument display.
Driver assistance features for this stylish SUV include adaptive cruise control, park assist, driver warning alert and speed sign recognition.
The engine range includes a couple of 1.2-litre PureTech petrol engines and 1.6-litre unit.
Among the diesels there are two 1.5-litre BlueHDI units and one 2.0-litre offering.
The new Peugeot 5008 will go on sale at the end of the year in the UK with prices and more spec details expected to be revealed closer to that time.
Green Cars’ is the term used for zero, low and ultra-low emission vehicles (ULEVs) - with pressure being applied to lower global emission levels, the need for “eco-friendly” vehicles is on the rise. Many countries now have plans in place to abolish the use of combustion engines before the turn of the century and so more and more vehicles we see on the roads will be Electric, hybrid or very low emission petrol and diesels.
Although beneficial to the environment, ‘Green Cars’ are also beneficial from a taxation view. The lower a vehicle’s emissions banding, the lower the taxation placed against it. Many manufacturers have tapped in to this ever-growing market with their own offerings, however, Volvo were the first manufacturer to state that every one of their models will be either electric or hybrid options from 2019.
