Peugeot Dealers to Showcase New 5008 7-seater SUV
The new Peugeot 5008 seven seater SUV, will take pride of place in Peugeot Dealerships, alongside the Peugeot 2008, Irish Small SUV of the Year 2017 and the revolutionary new 3008 SUV, Irish Car of the Year 2018, during the Peugeot SUV Drivetime event up to 22nd December.
Big sister to the multi-award winning Peugeot 3008 SUV, the new 5008 is a departure from its former traditional MPV body shape. Featuring three rows of seats, as before, it now houses the new Peugeot iCockpit® and digital instrumentation across the range, morphing into a more sophisticated, stylish vehicle that combines efficiency with high-levels of safety and technological equipment.
The range starts from €29,345 plus delivery related charges for the Access 1.2 130bhp PureTech petrol version.
Sales and Marketing Director at Gowan Distributors, Peugeot Importers in Ireland, Colin Sheridan said,
“The Peugeot 2008 SUV and the new 3008 SUV have both been huge sales successes in Europe and indeed in Ireland, outperforming the Irish market in 2017. Given the success of the previous 5008 MPV, the 2nd best seller in its class in 2016, I have every confidence that the new Peugeot 5008 SUV will build on this strong commercial success. Consumer interest in Ireland in SUVs continues to be strong and Peugeot as a brand is very well positioned now to maximise growth opportunity, particularly with our fantastic 1.2 petrol 130bhp engine, in manual and automatic guise. Specifically for the Irish market, we also offer a spare wheel as standard on all except the GT version.”
A range of 1.6 BlueHDi and 2.0 BlueHDi litre diesel engines, with manual and automatic transmissions, are available with power ranging between 100, 120, 150 and 180bhp. The range-topping GT version comes equipped as standard with a refined 2.0 litre BlueHDi diesel 180bhp 6-speed automatic.
GT Line models boast self-levelling full LED headlamps, LED fog lamps with cornering function, LED sequential scrolling front indicators, door mirror mounted LED Peugeot Lion approach lights, black diamond roof, panoramic opening sunroof with electric blind and blue ambient lighting, Peugeot Open and Go keyless entry and push button start, Park Assist (parallel & row) with front & rear camera and 360 degree vision (Visiopark 3) and a Smartphone charging plate. Features include chrome side window trim, sports front bumper design, twin exhaust effect trim and 18” matt two-tone diamond cut alloys, leather effect and cloth seat trim with double stitch detail, full grain perforated leather steering wheel and tramonte black roof lining.
