2021 Peugeot 5008

Bold design In order to stay one step ahead in terms of style, the front of the new SUV PEUGEOT 5008 is moving towards a style that is as distinctive and unique as ever. This bold design sets the codes for a new phase of modernity, while at the same time providing calibre and a move upmarket.

A new frameless grille symbolises the increasingly modern style, while maintaining a fluid design. In the designer's words, it extends with fins under the headlamps to connect all of the elements. And lastly, the nose of the bonnet now proudly displays the model's monogram, as does the entire Peugeot range.

To emphasise this vibrancy, shiny black side scoops and a painted tread plate have been included into the new bumper from the first trim level.

There is a specific grille on the GT / GT Pack with a scalable design pattern to emphasise the stylistic upgrade of the GT versions.

The front headlamps have also been redesigned to be more aggressive and to split even more from current codes. They include LED technology from the very first level and are extended by hook-shaped DRLs with a chrome tip. This light signature is perfectly in line with the current Peugeot style and is identifiable at first glance.

On the GT / GT Pack levels, Full LED headlamps offer an even more high-tech and distinctive look, thanks to the extended light signature and the bend lighting function (EVS) which optimises visibility at speeds of up to 90 km/h.

Of particular note is the replacement of the fog lamps with the "Foggy Mode" function, integrated into the Full LED headlamps, which switches on the low beam headlamps with reduced intensity when the rear fog lamps are activated.

At the rear, new, upgraded headlamps include Full LED technology (including the reversing light), displaying the 3D claws for a punchy light signature. The indicators are sequential. The lights are covered with a clear, smoked glass, extending the black boot lid on each side of the vehicle, which helps to visually widen the rear of the vehicle.

The GT Pack level has a new 19-inch "San Francisco" diamond-studded aluminium wheel on the side to make this finish even more exclusive.

In addition, the GT monograms (front wings and boot lid) have been upgraded.

The new SUV PEUGEOT 5008 will be available in the following shades:

  • Celebes Blue (new shade)
  • Metallic Cooper (new shade)

A new i-Cockpit®

The success of the PEUGEOT 5008 is also thanks to its spectacular interior. In the new SUV PEUGEOT 5008 the PEUGEOT i-Cockpit® has changed to be even more modern and top of the range:

  • The 12.3-inch digital headset, which is fully customisable and configurable, features a digital panel with "Normally Black" technology for high quality rendering with better readability and contrasts.
  • The new central touch screen is 10 inches in size. The screen is high definition and comes with a series of seven elegant piano keys - the "toggle switches" - allowing direct and permanent access to the main comfort functions: radio, air conditioning, 3D connected navigation with voice command, vehicle settings, telephone, mobile applications and hazard warning lights.

On the centre console, all internal combustion engines equipped with automatic gearboxes are now fitted as standard with the driving mode selector that allows the driver to choose between Normal, Sport and Eco.

To underscore the modernisation of the i-Cockpit®, this upgrade is reflected in the interior with new trims, which add to the perceived level of quality and allure of the cabin :

  • New Red Nappa Leather upholstery on GT / GT Pack,
  • New Mistral Black PET / Alcantara® lining on GT / GT Pack,
