The new 5008 will be founded on another stage that seems, by all accounts, to be somewhat more extensive than the present one, showed by the testing donkey’s more extensive bumpers. Different changes found in the spy shots incorporate five wheel jolts rather than the present four and the area of the fuel top (it has exchanged sides). Be that as it may, regardless of what changes are being done on the outside, the 5008 will get greater measurements, particularly within. This will permit up to seven individuals the room that they require.
The motor line-up will be imparted to the up and coming 301 , the successor to the 308 , which implies an extensive variety of diesel and petrol motors and in addition a diesel-cross breed. Much the same as with each other model in the line-up, Peugeot will concentrate on lessening fuel utilization and Co2 discharges.
Common sense is the 5008’s trump card. There’s space for seven and the rearmost seats are more large than you’d anticipate. All the center column seats slide and lean back separately and it’s truly simple to crease them down and evacuate them totally. Fold every one of them down or evacuate all of them and you have yourself a decent van.
In advance, the cockpit is to a great degree tasteful and well laid out with a rich focus console. The format could be marginally clearer, and a portion of the controls on the inside console are truly rather fiddly, however other than that it’s OK. You sit high, so all-round perceivability is great.
As we specified, the 1.6 VTi petrol motors joined with the passage level Access spec won’t go down well when you attempt to offer the auto on. Spec is truly really poor at the fundamental level, as well, so you’re in an ideal situation going for a mid-range model and any of alternate motors. The 1.6 HDi 115 diesel motor returns 56.4mpg and 128g/km, so it’s particularly shoddy to keep running for an expansive MPV, and e-HDi models fitted with the EGC gearbox are considerably more thrifty, but jerkier. Those intrigued by driving will take the economy hit, albeit most will locate the self-shifter fine.
Keep away from the essential 1.6 VTi petrol motors. They’re the less expensive alternative, but on the other hand they’re drowsy and you’ll never offer them on later on. The 1.6 THP petrol motor is far unrivaled – it’s turbocharged and packs 156bhp, so even in an auto the extent of the 5008, it appears to be really energetic. The 1.6 and 2.0-liter HDi motors are the conspicuous decision, however. The 115bhp 1.6 is more than skilled and it’s by a long shot the most cheap, yet there’s dependably the 150 and 163bhp 2.0-liter variants on the off chance that you favor more torque.
Generally, the 5008 rides well, but at the same time it’s entirely captivating to drive similarly as MPVs go, so the firmer than normal suspension makes itself known over the odd unpleasant surface. It’s not terrible, however, and when you figure the Peugeot’s refinement, sharp directing and solid hold, the driving knowledge overall is really balanced, particularly for a major old individuals transporter like this.
