The Peugeot 5008, a new compact people carrier, will be launched in Ireland in early 2010, reintroducing the five-series into the Peugeot range. The seven seat MPV shares the famous “5” series name with the legendary Peugeot 504 and the Peugeot 505 Family estate, the great family favourites.
Available in three trims, the 5008 will retail in Ireland from about €26,900 for the level one SE Model, rising to about €30,900 for the level three SV Model. Both prices are ex-works.
The 5008 will accommodate up to seven occupants and their luggage. The driver benefits from a raised driving position giving excellent visibility, combined with ergonomically positioned controls, mirrored in the new 3008. With its large front windscreen and glass roof, passengers enjoy a bright and spacious interior with exceptional panoramic views. Total glazed surface area is 5.77m?.
At launch the 5008 will be available in Ireland with a 1.6 HDi FAP 110bhp six-speed manual, emitting 140g/km CO2, qualifying for €156 annual road tax.
An electronically controlled Eco gearbox option is available at a €1,000 premium and qualifying for €156 annual road tax (135g/CO2 ). The Eco gearbox offers a real alternative to automatic drivers faced with high road tax costs in Ireland.
