The next-generation 2018 Peugeot 5008 has gone from an eccentric MPV to a stylish SUV, and it will likely be much more popular with Australian buyers. It seems that this French automaker sees no future in eccentric minivans, adopting rather an SUV design for its Peugeot 5008 second generation 2018. It’s not as if Peugeot had the choice. The SUV phenomenon was nothing more than a global change in the game, which virtually killed people and families in favor of family crossovers.
In front, he looks like his little brother 3008 incorporating the new face of Peugeot. The same applies to the side panels, even to the chrome stripes running along the doors. But in the back, that’s where the design differs. The 5008 is not as well proportioned as the 3008. There is a larger greenhouse and a more upright approach taken to style. Mind, it’s still a striking visual on the road, especially with its avant-garde nose and its three LED taillights designed to look like cat claws – think Peugeot Lion and feline imagery is starting to have a meaning.
Similarly, the 5008 gets Peugeot’s impressive i-Cockpit interior, including a 12.3-inch digital instrument screen, an 8-inch capacitive touch screen (both in high resolution) and the steering wheel of the Mark. We sampled the Lighthouse 5008 GT, which adds a host of extra creature comforts like quilted upholstery in soft Nappa leather, solid LED headlights with cornering function, and 19-inch alloy wheels. . He also receives two packages of equipment; Pack City 2 and Pack Drive Assist as part of its standard inventory. Pack City 2 includes front and rear parking sensors with backup camera, front camera with 360-degree view and parking assistance for parallel and row parking. Drive adds active safety features such as ACCC stop + advanced automatic emergency braking system (AAEB) with video camera and radar, and frontal collision warning.
The lineup starts with a pair of 1.6-liter units, either 100 hp or 120 hp, the latter being probably the most popular with a time of 11.4 seconds at 11.4 seconds and a top speed of 113 mph, as well. than an average fuel economy of 67.3mpg. Those who need more powerful diesel engines can also choose 150 or 184 hp versions of a 2.0-liter unit.
It goes without saying that prices must be competitive in such a hotly contested segment and further testing of the local soil is likely to reveal more details.
