Technology and interior
There’s a significantly updated cabin, complete with Peugeot’s wraparound i-Cockpit, which adds a 12.3in TFT instrument display and 8.0in centre console touchscreen.
As standard, every 5008 model comes with seven seats. All three rows of seats have length adjustability, five different angles of inclination and three-point Isofix anchor points.
Rear passengers are given power sockets, blinds, trays on the back of the first-row seats, hooks and cupholders. Boot space can be maximised by removing the third-row seats. They weigh less than 11kg to make extraction easier.
With the second and third rows of seats down, the 5008 offers up to 1124 litres of boot space. This grows to 1940 litres if you load all the way up to the roof. With the third-row seats down and second row up, there’s still 1060 litres of space to fill, which is class-leading.
Top-spec models get an electric tailgate that can be opened by placing a foot under the rear bumper. This feature is optional further down the range.
Peugeot has ditched the base Access trim level from the UK market. This means the entry-level 5008 comes in Active form and gets i-Cockpit as standard. Above this, Allure, GT Line and a more performance-orientated GT model are offered.
Engines and gearbox
Like its predecessor, the 5008 is available at launch with a choice of turbocharged petrol and diesel engines, but it gains a more potent range-topping 2.0-litre diesel option.
The smallest petrol, a 128bhp 1.2-litre, comes with a six-speed manual gearbox or a six-speed automatic. It’s joined by a 1.6-litre that produces 163bhp and is mated exclusively with the auto.
