The highly anticipated new Peugeot 5008 SUV is now on sale in Ireland, with deliveries from next month.
Prices start from €28,745 for the 1.2 PureTech (130bhp ) petrol engine version. The entry-level 1.6 BlueHDi (100bhp ) diesel version is €29,265. The latter has a five-speed transmission.
The new 5008 is a departure from its former traditional MPV body shape. It features three rows of seats and the new Peugeot iCockpit, with digital instrumentation across the range. It is described by Peugeot as a sophisticated, practical and stylish vehicle that combines efficiency with high-levels of safety and technological equipment.
Lower, more spacious, yet less bulky than its competitors, the new 5008 SUV retains the same height as before - 1.64m. An increased length to 4.64m (+11cm ) over the previous 5008 MPV model ensures there is more room for occupants. Second-row passengers now enjoy 6cm more knee room. Despite its larger size, Peugeot says that it offers excellent levels of agility in an aerodynamic design.
With a choice of five trim levels, including Access, Active, Allure, GT Line and GT versions, a wide range of both petrol and diesel engines are available. Petrol engines include the 1.2-litre PureTech 130bhp turbo petrol engine, available with manual or automatic transmission, and the 1.6 THP petrol 165bhp EAT6 six-speed automatic. The PureTech engine was voted International Engine of the Year in its category for the third year running in June.
A range of 1.6 BlueHDi and 2.0 BlueHDi litre diesel engines, with manual and automatic transmissions, are available, with power ranging between 100, 120, 150, and 180bhp. The range-topping GT version comes equipped as standard with a refined 2.0 litre BlueHDi diesel 180bhp six-speed automatic.
Standard features from Access trim include the revolutionary Peugeot iCockpit interior comprising a compact steering wheel, a configurable 12.3” head-up digital instrument panel, an 8” touchscreen, multifunction steering wheel, Bluetooth, USB connectivity, and three 12V sockets.
Boasting a five-star Euro NCAP safety rating, the new 5008 SUV range includes from level one Electronic Stability Programme, six airbags including curtain airbags along all three rows, cruise control with speed limiter, speed limit information with intelligent speed adaptation, driver attention alert level 1, and lane departure warning.
