Peugeot has updated its 5008 family SUV with a new look, enhanced tech and streamlined trim structure with the brand’s latest design language.
Chief among the changes for the Skoda Kodiaq rival is a revised front end that brings the Peugeot 5008 into line with their newer models. It comprises a frameless grille that expands across the front, fading into horizontal stripes underneath the main headlight units.
Those headlights have a light bar which continues downwards. Replacing the old units which sat along the top contour of the headlight. Peugeot’s moved the 5008 badge to the leading edge of the bonnet. This design first adopted on the 508 and since applied to the 208, 2008 and 3008.
Peugeot 5008 gains styling and interior tweaks
Peugeot’s upgraded both screens, with the i-Cockpit digital dial pack now featuring new graphics and greater contrast. It comprising a 10.0in infotainment touchscreen. Wireless phone charging, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto fitted at all trim levels and the facelift brings three new USB sockets.
What’s more important is what hasn’t changed. The 5008 still offers seven seats, with three adult-sized units in the centre row. This makes it one of few cars that can accommodate three child seats sat next to each other.
A drive mode selector is now standard on 5008 models equipped with an automatic gearbox, allowing drivers to choose between Normal, Sport and Eco. As before, the 5008 can be specified with a choice of two petrol and two diesel engines. Buyers can choose the 128bhp 1.2-litre petrol with six-speed manual or eight-speed auto gearboxes, or a 1.6-litre four-cylinder with 178bhp and autobox as standard.
Expect pricing to be reveales and order books to open soon. But can be expect to mark a slight increase on the 5008’s current £28,980 starting price.
