With the introduction of the Traveller and the 3008, Peugeot Philippines adds another model to its line-up with the entry of the bigger crossover style 5008. The All-New Peugeot 5008 SUV comes with a bigger cabin for both second and third-row passengers.

Second-row occupants can enjoy longitudinal adjustments to maximize legroom and even recline the seat backrest angle for optimum comfort on each of the three independent seats. Third-row occupants can also enjoy generous levels of leg and headroom.

“In designing the Peugeot 5008 SUV, no details have been spared, including allowing ample space in the third row. We want all passengers to have the same level of comfort as is standard with our vehicles,” said Glen Dasig, president of Peugeot PH.

When not in use, the third row can be folded and stowed easily, creating an impressive boot space of 962 liters. Removing the individual third-row seats further expands the rear capacity to a total of 1,060 liters.

Peugeot’s iCockpit is also in the 5008, elevating the entire driving experience. A heightened driving position, compact steering wheel, and a fully digital dashboard and control panel come together to create the perfect combination of dynamism and technology.

In addition to the iCockpit, the 5008 boasts of intuitive driving aids that provide convenience in any situation. The Visiopark 2 system provides the 5008 with a clear 360-degree view of its surroundings when parking. The Park Assist feature found on the 5008 also makes maneuvering a simple task.

Powering the new crossover is a 1.6L Turbo High-Pressure petrol engine, also found in the petrol variant of the Peugeot 3008 SUV. Combining agility and fuel efficiency in a large vehicle is one of the unique traits of the All-New Peugeot 5008 SUV. Peugeot’s Efficient Modular Platform 2 (EMP2) also provides the All-New Peugeot 5008 SUV with a light frame that further reduces the vehicle’s weight and fuel consumption while increasing overall responsiveness. This results in the perfect balance between comfort and road handling.

The 5008 possesses the defining traits of a Peugeot SUV with its enhanced modularity, generous space, highly intuitive driving aids, and dynamic performance. “The characteristics and features of the All-New Peugeot 5008 SUV truly defy the boundaries of comfort and versatility in the midsize SUV segment,” Dasig says.

The All-New Peugeot 5008 SUV is now available in select Peugeot dealerships nationwide with a suggested retail price of P2,990,000. [email protected] for more information.
