PureTech 130 and 180 engines and BlueHDi 130 and 180 engines are available, and all versions have a 180° reversing camera, Extended Traffic Sign Recognition, Lane Keeping Assist, and Advanced Emergency Braking 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+.
