2014 Peugeot 5008
The completely new front appearance adopts the stylistic codes of the marque, with technological headlamps that express strength through their meticulous integration with the bodywork. Technological, on the top-of-the-range versions have a xenon lens, the projected height of which is corrected automatically according to the load and the beam of which is directed towards the inside of the prescribed turn. At the base of the headlamp are housed the light signature and the directional indicators, these two LED functions using the fla t g uide technology. On each side of the lower air intake, a chromed trim emphasises the fog lamp with its ‘C’ shape design.
Between the two headlights is the thin ‘floating grille’ with chromed bead detailing across the width of the passenger compartment and this perception is reinforced by the lower front panel area, which extends further towards the sides of the vehicle.
In profile, the balanced lines express several characteristics, combined for the first time. The 5008 has the appearance of always seemingly to be moving due to the pure treatment of the style lines. The plunging bonnet and the windscreen part the air in the most effective and efficient manner. The design is confirmed by the measurements, with a Cd of just 0.29.
The body waist line, through its styling directly above the rear wheels, promises a certain dynamism and, through its height, excellent safety. The roof bars have the same function, surrounding the passenger compartment and solidly integrating with the D post. Nevertheless, these qualities are expressed subtly. The glazed surface area is generous from all angles, with the large quarterlight merging uninterrupted into the rear screen. At the rear, the design of the tailgate uncovers a boot which is easy to access, an essential quality in a versatile vehicle.
To adorn this innovative interpretation of the Compact MPV, being dynamic and spacious, nine colours are available among which are the new Rich Oak and Artense Grey. The weatherstrips are trimmed in chrome. Among the wheels available, from 16″ to 18″, is a new 17″ diamond Anthra Grey alloy wheel.
