Have not yet dissipated the echoes of the successes, commercial and recognitions, the Peugeot 3008 in his first year on the market, when the French firm returns to the fray with another SUV, the third and its European range. The new Peugeot 5008, much as Keep the name of the minivan marketed until last year, plays in a different league. Yes, changing silhouette of his body leads to terrain SUV and, among them, the great compact: with 4.64 meters long, 19 cm more than the 3008, it brings also seven seats.

For now, get ahead of that the 5008 is called to become, in more ways than one, a new reference in that little busy segment: that of Kodiaq Skoda, Nissan X-Trail, Mitsubishi Outlander, Hyundai Santa Fe, Kia Sorento and Land Rover Discovery Sport. In the case of interior modularity that do want more than a minivan thank you, of those 7 seats, three seats are individual center, identical dimensions and multirregulables, with flat rear floor. Or its dynamic behavior.

5008: a recognized basis

Like the 308 and 3008 'This is the car that most resembles in his walk, only with more kilos to cuestas-, Its architecture is modular new EMP2. This supposed to have driving aids such as automatic emergency braking and collision warning, the warning and correction -this lane change, not the most subtle or vehicles in the blind spot, an automatic cash on of alternating short and long, depending on traffic or instant recognition of the LED traffic signal lights, which information is transferred to the instrumentation. Also, a cruise control that can be "smart".

5008This platform also means that EMP2 the Peugeot 5008, in any of its versions, dispenses with AWD among its resources: to dispose of it, it would be because there were a hybrid version to mount an electric motor to drive the rear wheels. So all 5008 feature front-wheel drive, although, as option we did not have our unit but is available in whatever version of the range, yes with grip Control: With a wheels M + S indissolubly associated with it, this knob adjusts the traction control operation according to the type of terrain.

Little changes with respect to his little brother until you reach the central pillar, so that what we find is that Peugeot has christened i-Cockpit, a place where change is almost a foot of a flywheel longer be oblate circular top and bottom: respectively, to allow see large digital display that sits on top of him, not through; and the legs reach to ever bother your turn. Maneuvering, may not fall in love; but with the shape and size -4 cm less high than width-wise, induces driving feel otherwise.

If you come from a Peugeot 3008 You'll notice that there are more kilos and even where they are located: in the back. This subtracts the rear axle some agility compared to other compact SUV Peugeot, but the downside is that even gives the 5008 a feeling of greater stability, especially in larger radius curves. Yes, because besides long suspension because tread feel rotunda. And more should be in this version than in other less powerful engines for the specific setting. So, the sense of security is a constant. And look uncomfortable: although it is prepared to carry much weight in the back was not necessary to particularly harsh suspension that axis. Still, it insulates properly, although there where it feels less firm when the state is not adequate.

So, any rivals Peugeot 5008 remains below its behavior, especially when much engine that equal weight is 85 kilos a top 3008, follow It is very light compared to other SUVs between 4.60 and 4.80 meters, like this one, with 7 seats.

5008 2.0 BlueHDi: your space

I've already predicted that, in this 5008, each and every one of their seats are independent. It is usual for the third row appeal, but the 5008 surprised to have them in the second: it's something you will not find, not including SUV like this Peugeot, but even becomes scarce in some minivans. And, if so, are all advantages over runs banquettes. Because the possibilities of adapting to the tastes of the occupants inside the 5008 just remember ... the previous 5008! And, it changes the silhouette, but the essence of that is kept in the cabin.

Why the same You can recline into five different positions backups that misalign, thanks to the large independent longitudinal adjustment of each, the three seats located behind the driver and passenger. So you're going to get the shoulders of those who will not match them and expand your comfort. Oh, and each with its Isofix attachments, a declaration of intent on its claim to be helpful by allowing families put on this line three children's chairs. In addition, the possibility of longitudinal adjustment on 16 cm space manager, which is not small, according to the third row. I'm not going to cheat, it is preferable that they are always children the space the reserves and characteristics of the seat, but intelligent excavation roof allows an adult does not end up going as badly as augurs height measurement of the square. What is inevitable is, as in any other third row, its rear is well below his knees, given the proximity to the ground of the bench.

By the way, to get these seats, which does not have the new Peugeot 5008 over its predecessor is that ingenious system whereby, when lifting the handle on the top of the backrest, the bench rose vertically: was parallel to back. Thus a very large space access was achieved. Now the curb remains in its normal, horizontal to the ground, free from its position the seat to move forward position. Thus the gap is now either because abuts the front seat or because it reaches the end of its stroke, is smaller.

5008 7 seatsOne of the bright exceptionalities of 5008 is that these two small seats in the third row, which folds up the trunk floor, as well They can be drawn Car. The extraction system is very simple, although a handle on the remote unlock more comfortable, for ergonomic, not have been more. However, even when kept in their positions, they remain below exploitable spaces for small packages.

These possibilities are an intelligent resources to favor life on board that boasts this 5008, but there is more. Simply set, regardless of the huge gap under the armrest of the front seats-about 10 liters of capacity- or other like the one at the feet of the passengers in the rear seats, with about six liters and they go unnoticed by placing them on the mat. Even, perhaps you are thinking of those who, for example, have a very active life style and seek a partner for your excursions beyond the asphalt, where for ground clearance can either move, inside the 5008 you can carry really long objectsUp to a surfboard longboard of 9.4 feet fits under the 2,90 m almost there dashboard to gate, in case the backup in combination with a rear seat passenger should be downcast.

In a "conventional" configuration of the passenger compartment, with five seats for example, trunk cubic capacity is superlative (until 625 liters capacity), the best among similar SUV. Even when the central banquettes go backward. While with seven seats, and making use of the already mentioned gaps that remain under the rear seats flat Grow up that space above ground not to be occupied by them-not bad anda served.
