7 people need, want a huge trunk … but you wonder if Diesel 120 hp are enough in the new Peugeot 5008. We tried and we help to clear up the mystery.
What is a safe bet, mechanical election Diesel more balanced in 3008 and the Peugeot 308 compact, it becomes reasonable doubt in the new Peugeot 5008. Bigger and heavier and able to withstand more kilos of passengers and cargo, is logical to ask if 120 hp They are sufficient to deal with the 5008 full load. Although the bad-good-and, like all 5008 only have 4×2, kilos support less mechanical friction and other competing models themselves can have 4×4, as Skoda Kodiaq or new Renault Koleos, although it only has 5 seats.
In any case, if we think there is a version of Access BlueHDI 100 hp and if the proposed Peugeot is because it meets reasonable minimum for response and security, it seems logical that the 5008 BlueHDI 120 hp It provides sufficient resources to meet the expectations that we could have on the new SUV from Peugeot under heavy use and family. And personally, I think that overall, this version complies with reasonable balance.
The power "gross" You can give us an idea of how a car goes, but there are other values, such as pair, and certain characteristics such as engine response throughout its range of rotation, which greatly influence the driving own car.

Of course, if your day is going alone in your car, this version is bright for an answer, pleasure and consumption. And the penalty that might come to occupy all their seats or load of kilos at certain times of the year, does not compromise its overall response in normal and unusual situations. In this sense, it seems that the version 100 hp I could feel underpowered on many occasions.
Confronting official data, 5008 120 hp 1.6 BlueHDI Homologous an acceleration of 0 to 100 km / h (32.9 s) and 1,000 meters (11.4 s) in the line of a Peugeot 208 BlueHDI 100 hp (32.2 s and 10.7 s) version that does not generate doubts about its performance. The numbers 5008 BlueHDI 100 hp (34.9 s and 13.6 s) They resemble those of 208 HDI 75 CV (34.9 and 13.3 s), a version of the utility of the focus mark mainly citizen.
Seen this way, it seems then also bet safe for a large majority version 1.6 BlueHDI 120 hp the new Peugeot 5008. variant "long" the 3008 offers immense trunk 702 liters (5 seats), 180 more than 3008. In addition, the Central row of seats available 5008 three separate seats Y slide longitudinally (60/40 and fixed in 3008), thus offering a superior interior flexibility. The row rear of the 5008 features two independent seats concealable, which collected form the base of the boot. Also they can be easily disassembled and increases total 60 liters plus the ability to boot. each seat weighs 11 kilos. In a way, we could define the new 5008 as a symbiosis from SUV and minivan.
Dynamically the new Peugeot 5008 It is everything pleasant and refined which it is the 3008. In this sense, both SUV from Peugeot convey a quality point above the average. highlights the smoothness with what wheel Y filtered, as well as isolated that is the mechanics. He inside It is a particular care for materials Y finished, but what really stands out is the driving position and dashboard design.
