AHEAD of its Paris Motor Show launch later this month, French car maker Peugeot has revealed its first ever 7-seater SUV – the 5008, which is set for an Australian launch in the middle of 2017.
Bearing only the name of its predecessor, the new Peugeot 5008 breaks ground for the French marque as its first large, seven-seat SUV and will come in five model variants, including a GT.
The benchmark new model is expected to include such features as a foldable front passenger seat, along with a multitude of seating configurations, a motorised tailgate, a massive 1060 litre boot capacity, and cutting edge driver assistance systems.
These will potentially include Advanced Grip Control, Hill Assist Descent Control (HADC), Automatic Emergency Braking System (AEBS), Distance Alert, Active Lane Keeping Assistance (LKA), Driver Attention Warning, Smart Beam Assistance, Speed Sign Recognition and Speed Suggestion.
You can also expect Adaptive Cruise Control with stop feature (with the optional automatic gearbox), Active Blind Spot Monitoring, Park Assist and Visio Park (giving 360-degree vision).
Final specifications of the Australian models and pricing will be confirmed closer to the 5008 launch next year.
