The 2.84m wheelbase of the new 5008 SUV makes it the most liveable of C-segment SUVs! The overall length of the vehicle (4.64m) remains compact as the new PEUGEOT 5008 SUV - though 19cm longer than the all-new PEUGEOT 3008 SUV and 11cm longer than the original version of the 5008 - is still one of the most conservatively proportioned and its extra length makes it roomier for passengers. The vehicle’s optimised architecture is only part of the package on offer. The new PEUGEOT 5008 is more than just an SUV. It stands out in the market with an innovative configuration:

An SUV with an imposing exterior

The inspired design conveys power and respect. Its height remains the same (1.64 m with roof bars – standard on all models). This gives it a long and dynamic profile. At the front, the wide grille with chrome fins is exclusive, while the rear design features the gloss black strip and the signature LED ‘claw effect’ rear lights that set the latest breed of PEUGEOT SUVs apart.
