Updated Peugeot 5008 now on sale
The Peugeot 5008 MPV gets a midlife facelift, extra kit and a slight price rise
The seven-seat Peugeot 5008 has been given a re-style that brings it in line with the rest of the current Peugeot range. The refresh also brings extra standard-fit equipment, while prices rise by around £300 across the range.
The most obvious changes can be spotted on the car’s exterior, which now gets a ‘floating’ front grille – as seen on models such as the Peugeot 208 and new Peugeot 308 – and new headlights that incorporate revised bright LED daytime running lights. Chrome surrounds for the front fog lights complete the new look. The car is also available in new colours, including Rich Oak and Artense Grey, as well as getting redesigned alloy wheels.
Basic Access and Active models now come fitted as standard with front and rear parking sensors, plus a Parking Space Measurement system. Higher up the range, Allure and Feline models now get a rear parking camera, with parking guides, and a Head Up Display. It projects vital information – such as speed and sat-nav instructions – into the driver’s line of sight, so they don’t have to take their eyes off the road.
Buyers can choose from a range of four diesel and two petrol engines. Most economical is the 1.6-litre e-HDi FAP 115bhp diesel, which can return up to 65.7mpg and CO2 emissions of 113g/km for road tax of £30. The 1.6-litre petrol THP 156bhp petrol is the least economical model in the range – only managing 40.4mpg and CO2 emissions of 163g/km, which translates into road tax of £175 annually.
The revised Peugeot 5008 keeps the old model’s flexible seating arrangement. That means it has seven seats in total, while the five seats in the second and third row can be removed completely to reveal a flat load space for bulky loads. The front-passenger seat can also be folded down to carry extra-long items.
On sale now, prices for the facelifted Peugeot 5008 start at £18,800 for the basic Access 120bhp petrol, and rise to £26,205 for the top-of-the-range 2.0-litre diesel in Allure specification fitted with an automatic gearbox.
