Alone 10 journalists from across Europe we have been able go up in Lisbon, and for the first time, the brand new Peugeot 5008 a large SUV up to 7 seats. And almost unique. Right now in the market and price, we will only find as rivals with dramatic new Skoda also Kodiaq or the dedicated and Nissan X-Trail (formerly Qashqai 2). And if you need me to summarize this first test, we should say that all the good that you have had for the new Peugeot 3008 … and now the 5008 extrapólalo adding that other much larger space and more functionality.

Peugeot 5008 SUV TrophyThe new 5008 clearly has plus space behind the 3008, with a sliding bench seat and third-row asientosde easy access. Of course, once taken their seats, they are very well used and with good height for the heads of the occupants number 6 and 7: interesting also that these two stools of the third row can extract eliminating 11 kilos with each, and enabling additional 40 liters of trunk once removed.

To be more specific, saying the new uproot 5008 it’s up to 19 centimeters longer than its brother, the Peugeot 3008, while the same modular platform optimizes EMP2 16.5 centimeters when it comes to battle and, therefore, interior roominess. The knee space is increased by six centimeters in front of the 3008 previous generation. No SUV today offers seven general seats right now and their 4.64 meters long such a large luggage compartment (780 liters 5 seats and sixth and seventh withdrawn square), which can reach a maximum of 2150 liters of load in the same circumstances but swooping second row of seats.

5008: InteriorOnce you have a seat in the rear seats of the new Peugeot 5008 and notes that increased legroom and remarkable height heads, provided that no recourse to the panoramic roof should be more than 1.80 meters high. And if you decide to get settled in their new third row, it is much easier to maneuver input the output: you have to drop you while you stretch the leg and butt contorsionas the body. Clearly, in this third row will more elastic and small family, safe in a depressed position hip and foot always under the central seat of the previous row. Yes, Peugeot has achieved 21 millimeters for these occupants rear than the previous 5008 … and that the height is the same as in the new 3008: 1.64 meters.

5008: same engines as 3008

Let alone touch the mechanical, where the Peugeot 5008 shares range with his new brother 3008, and where we find two petrol and two diesel units. Among the former, include new engines 1.2 PureTech 130 hp and 165 hp 1.6 THP power, while among the latter talk about the past 1.6 BlueHDi 100 and 120 horsepower, and the upper 2.0 BlueHDi 150 and 180 hp.

Our first dynamic test the new Peugeot 5008 has focused on the always interesting three-cylinder gasoline engine 1.2 PureTech opening range and the most powerful diesel 2.0 BlueHDi moment that closes above. Nothing that we have drawn attention significantly versus what we’ve always had since the behavior of the Peugeot 3008.

If anything it should remind you balancing the good performance of the new Peugeot 5008 and the great make joint steering / suspensions twisty terrain, and where the dimensions are not increased by almost a quarter note … Almost So I would say that this 5008 strikes me as something less alive behind his brother 3008. It a very good family car.

5008Far is in the first tests the Peugeot 5008 our average consumption in the case of gasoline compared to 1.2 PureTech approved: announces 5,5 l / 100 km on average and in our 200 km of testing, we have been beyond nineYes … doing something light but neither limit nor much less thoroughly. As for ability to pull the body, this three-cylinder engine can spare, being larger and heavier clearly than 3008, while diesel 180 hp barely flinch, no matter how steep or difficult terrain sets. And all with a very different sound that makes us almost decant by the smoothness of gasoline in this case.

When does the 5008 sale?

The sale new 5008 summer starts earlier and, specifically it advertised for June, and its price will be approximately 1,700 euros more expensive than his brother equivalently, Peugeot 3008. That is, with promotional discounts could start something above 25,000 euros. The Peugeot 3008 provides a more attractive believe that the 5008 picture, but if you value is space and versatility, the choice is clear and decanted to this new 7-seater SUV brand. As rivals in its price range, a Nissan X-Trail “veteran” and a newcomer Skoda Kodiaq must fight. If we move one step up in price, and talking about 7 seats, refer touch and Hyundai.
