Meanwhile, the GT trim enhances the package with full LED headlights, the inclusion of the Drive Assist Pack or Drive Assist Plus Pack in EAT8 models, a refined 'Greval Alcantara' dashboard and door panel inserts, exclusive half leather seats, and the invaluable PEUGEOT Connect SOS & Assistance system.
The 5008 SUV is generously sized, with angular lines and a powerful presence. The cutting-edge body leads to a gorgeous cockpit, with a 12.3” head-up display, an 8”/10” touchscreen, toggle switch controls and a small, sporty steering wheel.
The turbocharged engines have start & stop technology, with the option of a manual or EAT8 auto gearbox with PureTech and BlueHDi 130 variants. The more powerful 180 engines get the automatic transmission as standard.
With seven seats in place, the 5008’s boot offers up 167-litres of space – enough for five large shopping bags. The two rear seats fold flat, opening up 952-litres of space. Tray tables on the front seatbacks are standard from Allure Premium+.
