Ready for Adventure: The new Peugeot 5008 SUV

Shereen Shabnam

Our new year began with outstation road adventures driving the new facelifted 5008 SUV. The latest 5008 features a bold new modern style on the front end, new Full LED rear lights and new eye-catching body colours.

For 210 years, PEUGEOT has unfailingly upheld a French manufacturing tradition of quality and inventiveness and is more focused today on designing sleekly styled vehicles that goes beyond driving by heightening all the senses and for a more intuitive driving experience. This is evident in the new PEUGEOT 5008.

The spacious SUV has enough room for the entire family and offers signature cutting-edge technology, exciting new features for those looking for space, comfort, power and efficiency.

The new 5008 comes with a 1.6 litre turbo engine coupled to a 6-speed automatic transmission producing 165 hp and 240 Nm of torque with manual and sports mode available for those who prefer a dynamic driving experience.

The interior design of the 5008 is bold, with style based on PEUGEOT’s new design language. The PEUGEOT i-Cockpit® features cutting-edge technology including a compact steering wheel, an 8-inch HD touchscreen found in the Active line, 10-inch HD touchscreen found in the Allure and GT models and a Head-up display unit with a high-resolution 12.3-inch digital screen.

The central touchscreen is perfectly positioned and accompanied by seven ‘piano key’ toggle switches which operate the main i-Cockpit® features: radio, air conditioning, navigation, vehicle settings, telephone, phone mirroring, ambient-lighting in addition to multi-point seat-massage.

We were impressed with the driving aids in the PEUGEOT 5008 such as the Adaptive Cruise Control, Active Safety Brake, Lane Keeping Assist, Driver Attention Alert, High Beam Assist, Blind Spot Monitoring system and Visiopark 2 (360° vision).

The 5008 SUV also features three identical, separate, and entirely adjustable seats, with a third row of two fold away, retractable seats available as an option to provide more space where needed. The design shows a dominant yet elegant presence, intertwined with the cosy luxurious interior. It also features a panoramic sunroof.

We took the new PEUGEOT 5008 to three different Emirates and found it easy to handle as it offered comfort, performance and an agile driving experience.
