Peugeot continues to rely on the growth of the SUV segment in markets around the world. After the launch of new Peugeot 3008 and the update of the Peugeot 2008, it’s time to update the 2020 Peugeot 5008 as well. This is a flagship SUV with capacity for 7 passengers in three rows of seats.
With the 5008, Peugeot wants to give continuity to the good taste that started with 3008, which means the same design philosophy, with lots of new aesthetical details on both ends of the vehicle.
2020 Peugeot 5008 Exterior
The Peugeot 5008 2020 has a modern and bold silhouette that can impress at first sight by generating a mix of elegance and comfort thanks to its robust appearance. On the front, we can see the luminous signature and the headlights with a slightly curved shape that draw a feline look. We doubt that the upcoming update will affect such a beautiful approach too much. Still, a couple of o tweaks to the front fascia and the slightly revised bumper is something we can count on. The rest of the vehicle probably won’t change too much. Typical updates in terms of new wheels, color options etc will come as well.
At its rear, the Peugeot 5008 2020 features an aerodynamic line of its window with an ultra-modern and iconic style of the bright black horizontal band that enhances the three claws of the LED lights integrated with the tailgate.
This Peugeot 5008 measures 4.6 meters long, 2.09 meters wide with 1.6 meters high. You can find it in pearly white, platinum gray, emerald glass, burlesque blue and pearl black with 18-inch aluminum wheels in all its versions.
Inside the Peugeot 5008 2020, we can see a more compact steering wheel with height and depth adjustment. Also, there is an 8-inch touch screen in the instrument panel that can be configured and customized to the driver’s taste. Between the infotainment screen and the gear lever, it has a series of piano buttons. They allow access to the main comfort functions. The seats are heated and lined in leather or Nappa leather depending on the version. The amount of legroom is pretty generous in all three rows. On the other side, things aren’t that good in the cargo area. You can count on only 6 cubic feet (166 liters) behind the third row. Still, keep in mind that this is more compact than a mid-size SUV in terms of dimensions. The overall cargo space is pretty typical for the class and goes over 2000 liters (>72 cubic feet).
We don’t expect that the French manufacturer will touch too much on the inside with this update. A couple of new features, particularly in terms of safety and technology is everything we could see in the 2020 Peugeot 5008.
2020 Peugeot 5008 Engines
The engine lineup of 2020 Peugeot 5008 is about to remain the same. Therefore count on a familiar range of engines. The lineup starts with a small 1.2-liter turbo-three petrol engine, which is good for about 130 horsepower. If you’re seeking for better performances, a 1.6-liter turbo-four with 180 horsepower seems like a perfect choice.
When it comes to diesels, a new 1.5-liter HDi is pretty efficient and delivers around 130 horsepower. If you prefer something more powerful, go for a 2.0-liter HDi, which features a max output of around 180 horsepower.
2020 Peugeot 5008 Release Date and Price
Expect to see 2020 Peugeot 5008 by the end of the year. When it comes to the price, it can vary depending on the marker. In Europe, base models go around 30.000 Euro.
The Peugeot 5008 2020 arrives to compete against the Volkswagen Tiguan, Nissan X-Trail, Honda CR-V, Kia Sportage or Chevrolet Equinox, in terms of dimensions. But if you look strictly at the price, competitors are medium SUVs such as the Nissan Pathfinder, Mazda CX-9, Chevrolet Traverse etc. It could even be in the fight with luxury models such as the Audi Q3, Mercedes-Benz GLA and Volvo XC60.
This wide range of competition can be a two-edged sword because although it puts it as an alternative among a greater number of consumers. Still, it definitely has advantages against premium models because of its equipment level at a more accessible price.
