2017 Peugeot 5008


Its name hasn't changed, but everything else has. The new Peugeot 5008 breaks new ground as a large seven-seater SUV in the C segment. As a new contender in this growing consumer market, it boasts many strengths. The all-new Peugeot 5008 SUV includes the latest version of the outstanding Peugeot i-Cockpit®, Efficient Modular Platform 2 (EMP2), and a plethora of high-tech features that enhance comfort and safety. Behind the elegant, dynamic design lies a superbly practical vehicle. With seven seats, the all-new Peugeot 5008 is the first SUV to offer modularity on par with that of the best people-carriers. A range of powerful, efficient engines and designs - including sporty GT Line and GT versions - is available for the new Peugeot 5008 SUV, to be unveiled at the 2016 Paris Motor Show in September before its launch in spring 2017.

The future looks bright for large C-segment seven-seater SUVs
The segment has changed a lot since 2009, when the first-generation Peugeot 5008 was released, and since then a great number of SUVs have entered the market in nearly all segments. This new kind of vehicle is an exceptional match for the expectations of today's customers. It has taken but a few years for the SUV profile to become the third best-selling in Europe - with all segments combined - surpassed only by B- and C-segment saloons.

The SUV is truly a modern automobile, offering users the attractive combination of status, sophisticated technology, impressive practicality and driving emotions. It puts drivers at centre stage and answers their urge to go new places and experience new things.

These values mirror the Peugeot brand image and the move up-market strategy, leading Peugeot engineers in 2012 to set themselves the ambitious task of releasing five new SUVs in under a year. This brand offensive got under way in March 2016 with the unveiling of the new Peugeot 2008 SUV and continued in May when the company revealed its spectacular new Peugeot 3008 SUV. In China, the latest version of the existing 3008 continues to be sold, its design has recently been refreshed, while an extended version of the new Peugeot 3008 SUV for the Chinese market - will be identified as the Peugeot 4008 SUV - has just made its first appearance at the Chengdu Motor Show. The new Peugeot 5008 SUV is thus the fifth SUV to be unveiled by the Peugeot brand within the year.

So why make the new Peugeot 5008 an SUV, thereby abandoning the C-segment seven-seater people-carrier niche? The answer is firstly because the people-carrier segment is almost exclusively a European phenomenon, while with the 5008 SUV we are looking at a worldwide market, and secondly, the incredible success of the C SUV appears to have been compensated by an erosion in demand for traditional saloons and people-carriers. It is thought most likely because today's customers are ever more eager to break the mould of standard vehicle profiles. Furthermore, some of them, especially owners of people-carriers and estate cars, no longer want to be pigeonholed as drivers of merely utilitarian family vehicles. And finally, everyone just wants to enjoy the whole benefits of driving one. These vehicles transform otherwise tedious trips into opportunities for driver and passengers to share a pleasant experience. In light of all this, the choice of design for the new Peugeot 5008 was obvious: it would have to be an SUV.

Few car manufacturers currently offer large C SUVs, because this subsegment is still developing, so there is a real demand and a lot of potential. Today many drivers are drawn to the SUV concept and the positive images it projects, but they are also looking for volume, roominess, comfort, and utility compatible with the diverse aspects of their active lives. For these people, standards SUVs are neither a good fit (too small and lacking in modularity) nor a good deal (bigger SUVs are too expensive and too imposing). Even current SUV owners, who love the design of their vehicle and the status it conveys, often want more volume and versatility.

The new Peugeot 5008 SUV is thus clearly a modern automobile, offering a new on-board experience and smart features, and it has what it takes to stand out as the benchmark for its class.

By virtue of its unique qualities, the newly unveiled Peugeot 5008 SUV aims to achieve three objectives:
·         to pursue the brand's move up-market strategy
·         to be an international success
·         to become the leading (benchmark) C-segment large seven-seater SUV.

The Peugeot 5008 SUV can rely on its many strengths to reach these goals. It all begins with a stunning interior that is nonetheless extremely practical.

The new Peugeot i-Cockpit® elevates the passenger compartment!
No other vehicle in its class matches the new Peugeot 5008 SUV for its trailblazing design: optimised and efficient geometry, a roomy interior, and a range of smart features. It has inherited the many traits of the new Peugeot 2008 and 3008 SUVs that make the Peugeot family of vehicles the most distinguished, modern, and stylistically consistent currently on the market.

To start off, there's the truly unique driver's environment. The first thing to see when opening the front doors is the latest version of the innovative, almost futuristic - Peugeot i-Cockpit®, which offers vehicle occupants a novel driving experience that both surprises and delights.
It has it all: a compact steering wheel (the smallest on the market, across all segments), an 8" capacitive touchscreen, and a spectacular 12.3" high-resolution digital head-up instrument panel. The latter will impress drivers with its superior graphics, elegant animations, and eye-pleasing transitions between modes that they can customise and configure. The responsive, user-friendly touchscreen puts all the information drivers need for a comfortable trip at their fingertips. The seven central satin chrome dashboard switches offer quick access to the main passenger comfort and safety functions: radio, Air Conditioning, Satellite Navigation, vehicle settings, telephone, apps, and hazard warning lights.

However that is only the beginning of the sensory experience in store for passengers. GT Line and GT versions also feature an extra button, next to the dashboard switches, to take things up a notch. With i-Cockpit® Amplify, be prepared for a richer driving experience that stimulates four senses at once:
·         sight, by adjusting screen colour and compartment lighting intensity
·         hearing, via musical ambience settings
·         touch, through five different multipoint seat massage programmes
·         smell, with a fragrance diffuser.

The vehicle offers occupants two predefined sensory environments: 'Boost', in tune with a dynamic driving style, and 'Relax', for a mellower ambience. Both can be fully customised, to accentuate the pleasure of driver and passengers alike, and guarantee a unique on-board experience.

This on-board experience is also enhanced by interior details that greatly magnify perceived quality and the modern feel of the passenger compartment. The new electric impulse automatic gearbox control exemplifies the modern elegance of the interior, through the meticulous selection of materials - like leather and chrome. Here is masterful design with a warm soul. The front-seat environment of the all-new Peugeot 5008 SUV is undoubtedly well appointed. But what can the other passengers look forward to in terms of space and features?

Spacious interior and more functions
The 2.84-m wheelbase of the all-new Peugeot 5008 SUV makes it the most liveable of C-segment SUVs! The Efficient Modular Platform (EMP2) is specified with a wheelbase 16.5 cm longer than the new Peugeot 3008 SUV, and is 11cm wider than the original 5008, and second-row passengers, have 60mm more knee room.

The overall length of the vehicle (4.64m) remains compact, yet for a spacious C-segment vehicle, the new Peugeot 5008 SUV-though 19cm longer than the new Peugeot 3008 SUV and 11cm longer than the original version of the 5008-is still one of the most conservatively proportioned and its extra length makes it roomier for passengers.

The vehicle's optimised architecture is only part of the package on offer. The new Peugeot 5008 is more than just an SUV. It stands out in the market with an innovative configuration:
·         three matching, separate, folding and tilting seats in the second row
·         two removable, separate, folding seats in the third row.

What isn't to love about the three separate second-row seats of the new Peugeot 5008 SUV?
·         They are all the same width, ensuring all three passengers enjoy the same comfort.
·         Their length is adjustable, allowing reconfiguration of the passenger and loading compartments, and knee room is optimised.
·         They offer five different angles of inclination (the original version of the 5008 had just two).
·         All feature adjustable headrests that drop down low when the seats are empty, for easy rear viewing.
·         Users can easily fold them down from the outside or from the boot to yield a rigid floor with seat-back covers to make a seamless flat surface.
·         Each features three-point Isofix anchor points.

The new Peugeot 5008 SUV also offers a third row of two extra seats that fold down into the boot floor are standard or optional, depending on the equipment level in the country of sale. The two covers of the boot floor form a perfectly flat surface when folded down, and they can also be easily tucked away behind the third-row seats when these are in use.

Controls on the top of the second-row side-seat backs facilitate access to the third-row seats. In just one movement, the second-row side seats tilt and slide forward for easier third-row entry.

But that's not all. The vehicle's clever design inspired Peugeot engineers to make these extra seats easily removable. Their modest weight (<11kg) and a single control make them easy to extract, so users can expand boot volume when needed. Each third-row seat that is removed yields 39dm3 (VDA 210) more space.

This makes for a huge boot capacity - the biggest in the category. With up to 780 dm3 (VDA 210), or 1,060 l, in 5-seat configuration, the boot is 100 dm3 larger than the original 5008. Its flat, uncluttered volume and low boot sill (676 mm), in combination with a foldable front passenger seat, allow the all-new Peugeot 5008 SUV to carry especially long loads (potentially up to 3.20 m).

A practical hands-free smart electric tailgate (standard on the GT version) opens and closes quickly and effortlessly when activated - simply by placing your foot under the rear bumper.
The spacious, functional, modular, practical and cleverly designed interior of the new Peugeot 5008 SUV meets all the challenges of daily lives and adapts to a multitude of situations. Adding further to that is a host of accessories (sockets, boot cover, blinds, 'aeroplane' trays on the back of the first row seats, hooks, cupholders, etc.) and storage spaces (38 l in total, distributed throughout the passenger compartment) for a much greater on-board experience.

The design, equipment, on-board technology, high-quality materials, and detailing distinguish the passenger compartment of the all-new Peugeot 5008 SUV from any other in its market. The interior is an invitation to take a seat and enjoy a special experience travelling in comfort, serenity, and luxury. Its exterior fully complements this image.

An SUV with an imposing exterior
The all-new Peugeot 5008 is a real SUV. All the hallmarks are there: long, horizontal bonnet; vertical face; and raised body line. The inspired design conveys power and respect, each line and curve perfectly positioned to project balance and uniformity. The contours of the new Peugeot 5008 SUV are both harmonious and elegant for a vehicle of its size.

While the all-new Peugeot 5008 SUV has been extended (by 19 cm, including a longer 16.5-cm wheelbase), its height remains the same (1.64 m with roof bars - standard on all models), which gives it a long and dynamic profile. Its striking form is accentuated by a raised body plane; the top trim beautifully frames the glazed surfaces, including the rear corner window; and an elongated roof that suggests fluidity and agility - clean, crisp, and contoured. GT Line and GT versions feature a contrasting Black Diamond glossy black roof projects still greater prestige, elegance, and modernity. At the limits of the next vehicle size segment and the world of premium car manufacturers, the all-new Peugeot 5008 SUV emanates an authentic aura of luxury.

The protective elements that enhance it include alloy wheels ranging from 17" up to 19" on the GT, and profiled standard-fit aluminium longitudinal roof bars which all add a subtle blend of character and sophistication to the vehicle contours. Everything comes together to make the design extremely modern, even futuristic, without falling into the traps of being too fussy, or ostentatious in style. The stretched profile also highlights the volume of the passenger compartment. From the outside, the doors, wheelbase, and large panoramic opening glass sunroof - standard on GT versions, which bathes the interior in light, and gives occupants a pleasant feeling of just how spacious and accommodating the vehicle is on the inside.

The exclusive wide grille with chrome fins, at the centre of which stands the Brand's Lion - dignified, not showy - carries the power and fluidity of the vehicle up front. The finesse of the vehicle's halogen headlamps gives it a piercing feline gaze that becomes sharper with optional full-beam LED headlamps (standard equipment on GT Line and GT versions). When the latter are specified, the all-new Peugeot 5008 SUV features a chrome chequered grille and distinctive front bumper. The expressive front-end design mirrors the assertive personality of its owner and pride in the brand identity. It's a real Peugeot! and a real SUV!

The rear design expresses strength and security. It features flattering curves and the gloss black strip along the bottom of the rear window that sets the latest breed of Peugeot SUVs apart. The Peugeot logo and brand name are on the centre of the strip, which connects the signature LED 'claw effect' rear lights, a marks that clearly identify it as a Peugeot vehicle - by day and by night. The rear profile - including an extra-wide tailgate and low boot sill - that also hints at just how spacious (and practical) the boot is.

The new 5008 SUV is a superbly designed vehicle that is lower, more spacious and less bulky than its competitors. From whatever angle viewed, the all-new Peugeot 5008 SUV is a finely crafted vehicle sparing nothing in details. Many elements come together to forge this impression - perfect trim, chrome highlights in selective locations around the vehicle exterior, and the two-tone body finish - conveying elegance, class, and good taste.

Driving and travelling pleasure that rivals the best touring vehicles
The all-new Peugeot 5008 SUV, the 308, and the all-new 3008 SUV all feature the Efficient Modular Platform (EMP2). And that says it all, because the EMP2, is already acknowledged for its dynamism, optimally combining comfort and great road handling.

Its modularity adapts to a variety of vehicle sizes, through utilising 55mm wheelbase extensions. The all-new Peugeot 5008 SUV is specified with three extensions (165mm longer) than the all-new 3008 SUV. When it comes to driving pleasure, the all-new Peugeot 5008 may be an SUV, but it is first and foremost a Peugeot! Company engineers had a clear mission: to make this imposing SUV a leader for road handling and to procure driving enjoyment through assured road handling with precise steering feel. Mission accomplished: despite its larger size, the all-new Peugeot 5008 SUV offers astonishing levels of agility and safety, so that even the shortest trip or routine outing becomes a pleasurable experience. Knowing that the new 5008 is one of the safest and enjoyable vehicles on the road will bring new levels of delight to its occupants.
