It seems Peugeot has really outdone itself with the 2017 5008 model. Here is why. Release date most likely early 2017. The price starts at $31,000.
2017 Peugeot 5008 Exterior
On the outside is where the new 2017 Peugeot 5008 really stamps its mark in comparison to the previous model. The new appearance is as dominating as it is stylish.
The front grille is all about that chrome, and with special horizontal slates it looks like it is much wider than it really is. Fog lights have been repositioned so as to make room for the new air dam.
As for the headlights, they have been given a thorough redesign, and now feature a huge cut in the lower central area. When combined with the grille and the new air vents, it all fits perfectly into this new image that Peugeot is gunning for.
This SUV is going to be instantly recognizable simply because there is currently nothing out there that can come even close to it.
All those chrome details add a nice sense of style but perhaps there is too much of a good thing after all. In the rear, the glass has been tinted for that extra privacy, although the pair of moonroof panels can be a bit revealing as a contrast.
The 5008 is designed to look a lot bigger than it actually is, and the taillights are as futuristic as they get. This futuristic vibe is not reserved only for the exterior, though.
On the inside, the 2017 Peugeot 5008 is going to look every bit as futuristic as you might expect. For all the mystery surrounding it, this new Peugeot has certainly outdone itself with its cockpit that looks like something of a Science Fiction movie.
The dashboard has two tiers, with a flat upper level and the functional lower one that is protruding towards the driver. It has all the instruments in its 12.3-inch cluster. The center piece of it all is the GPS navigation as well as a speedometer. As for the upper tier, it is reserved for the infotainment system complete with an 8-inch touchscreen with a brand new user interface.
The soft and perforated material that we couldn’t quite identify can be found on the doors, seats as well as the entire lower dashboard. With chrome elements and a new internal layout, the interior is as spacious as it is stylish.
There is also leather, of course, but this new material seems to feature the most prominent position. It is all over the seats and combines well with leather that covers the rest. Speaking of seats, they are going to be highly adjustable and feature an optional massage function for when you need it the most.
Engine of Peugeot 5008
Unfortunately, there is no way of knowing for certain what kind of engine will provide the power for the 2017 Peugeot 5008, but if rumors hold true, it will most likely be built on the Modular Platform 2, which translates into an all-wheel drive, as well as several gasoline and diesel engines.
There is going to be a new EAT6 automatic transmission but all details are kept confidential for now. When we find out more, so will you.
