The new PEUGEOT 5008 has taken top spot in the large seven seat SUV segment for the first six months of 2018. Big brother to the multi-award-winning PEUGEOT 3008 SUV, Irish Car of the Year 2018, the stylish new 5008 has taken a whopping 14 percent of the D-SUV year to date.
The sophisticated new PEUGEOT 5008 SUV features three rows of seats and the PEUGEOT iCockpit® combining a compact steering wheel, touchscreen and digital instrumentation across the range for maximum control and safety. Voted number one by the Irish Times, in the 'Top 100 Best Cars' for 2018, it retails in Ireland from €29,345 plus delivery related charges.
Colin Sheridan, Sales and Marketing Director at Gowan Distributors Limited, PEUGEOT Importers in Ireland said, 'the new PEUGEOT 5008 SUV has been a huge sales success in Europe since launch. That performance has been replicated in Ireland since initial stock arrived in late 2017, right through the first six months of this year, during which we have gained many conquest customers to the brand with over 80 percent of 5008 customers being new to us."
Housing three matching, separate, folding and tilting seats in the second row and two removable, separate, folding seats in the third row, each seat in the second row features three-point Isofix child seat anchor points. In just one movement, second row side seats tilt and slide forward to access the third row. The third row seats are easily removable (11kg ), thanks to a single control. This makes for a huge boot capacity, with up to 1,060 litres in 5-seat configuration.
With a choice of five trim levels, to include Access, Active, Allure, GT Line and GT versions, standard features across the range include the revolutionary Peugeot iCockpit interior, multifunction steering wheel, bluetooth, USB and 12V sockets, ESP, 6 airbags to include curtain airbags along all three rows, child safety locks, semi-automatic air conditioning, cruise control with speed limiter, speed limit information with intelligent speed adaptation, driver attention alert and lane departure warning.
A wide range of both petrol and diesel engines is available, mated to both manual and automatic transmissions. PEUGEOT’s PureTech engine was voted 'International Engine of the Year' in its category for the fourth year running in June and now makes up 27 percent of sales of the 5008.
