Family adventures are easy and enjoyable in the 5008, which at times feels more like a hatchback than a MPV. It has the stylish looks of Peugeot’s smaller models but all the space you need to carry up to six others in total comfort.
The model has all the hallmarks of Peugeot’s latest styling signature which you will see from every angle. The front face includes a horizontal grille with a slim daytime running light at its top. Angular headlamps frame the contoured bonnet, while a sharp fold leads from the rear doors to a large tailgate. Front fog lights come as standard to make sure the 5008 is seen in low light, and a Visibility Pack with automatic headlamps and rain sensing wipers keep your view of the road clear in any conditions. Personalise the finish with your choice of seven paint shades including Pearl White and Shark Grey.
The MPV seats up to seven, but it doesn’t have to all of the time. The multi-flex interior can be moulded to suit the needs of every trip by splitting and folding the second and third rows away. A panoramic glass roof fills the interior with light for everyone to enjoy, which only enhances the feeling of space in the car. Mistral Black Strada cloth is the standard upholstery, but you can swap this for black leather to bring a touch of luxury inside the MPV.
Engines and performance
Peugeot’s advanced PureTech petrol engine is available in the entry-level Active trim. The award-winning 128bhp unit delivers the performance of a much bigger engine but with far less emissions and higher fuel economy. It returns up to 52.3mpg combined and uses 230Nm of peak torque to accelerate confidently. The alternatives are 1.6-litre and 2.0-litre BlueHDi diesels which produce 118bhp and 148bhp respectively. The 1.6-litre powertrain with manual transmission is the most efficient of all engine options, returning up to 65.7mpg combined.
Safety and technology
As well as being efficient, the 5008 is reassuringly safe as any leading family model should be. Advanced active safety technology including ABS, Electronic Stability Programme (ESP) and traction control all come as standard to maximise your control and therefore prevent accidents. A reversing camera helps you to be aware of all your surroundings when parking, and if you were to be involved in a collision, six airbags deploy to protect everyone on board.
A variety of Peugeot technology also engages and entertains everyone when on the move. The standard audio system offers USB connectivity so you can play music from an external device. It also comes with a Bluetooth® interface for making and receiving calls hands-free. The Allure trim adds a Peugeot Connect Navigation system to the infotainment offering so you can easily reach any destination with no missed turns.
