Say Hello To The Peugeot 5008

Come Experience The Peugeot 5008

Multi Purposed Vehicles, otherwise known commonly as MPVs. These large people carriers are immensely popular amongst Car Club members for both versatility and legroom. Those who have experienced recent MPV models in our fleet such as the Opel Zafira Tourer or Chevrolet Orlando, would certainly be delighted with this new addition from French automobile maker Peugeot.

As a brand that has a lesser known ‘People Carrying’ heritage, the seven-seater Peugeot 5008 is a family-mover that has proven to be surprisingly impressive in handling and performance. The exterior profile sports a facelifted modern guise and streamlined glassy feel to match Peugeot’s design language. There’s also a generous expanse of glazing aided by neat design touches where large quarterlight merges uninterrupted into the rear screen.

The interior cabin is where the Peugeot 5008 really stands out. Six individual and foldable seats, which can be independently reclined or folded, so the interior can be configured quickly to suit different needs. If luggage space is what you need, simply fold the second row of seats flat, and it expands to 2506 litres, transforming the MPV into a cavernous utility van instead. If needed, the front passenger seat can also be collapsed, allowing items of up to 2.76m long in the car.

A high centre console separates the front seats to create a cockpit effect around the driver. With a large windscreen, deep side windows and glass roof, Peugeot cleverly creates an airy and elevated position thus giving the driver an excellent panoramic view with comfortable laid-back seating.

Worth mentioning here is the 6-speed automatic gear to take advantage of the twin-scroll turbo 1.6-litre powerplant’s increased powerband. True to the marque’s reputation for safety, there are six airbags on board, along with the standard ESP (Electronic Stability Program) and EBD (Electronic Brakeforce Distribution) systems. Another thoughtful safety feature is the child lock function, which not only keeps the rear doors shut but also prevents the windows from being tampered with by the little ones.
