The Peugeot 5008 is a car that was first produced by the French automaker Peugeot as Compact MPV in 2009, then reclassified as Compact Crossover SUV in 2017 and is still in production. The vehicle was designed by Sandeep Bhambra and the design was renewed with the facelift last year. The 5008 is built on the PSA EMP2 platform while sharing the same platform with the Citroen C5 Aircross and Opel Grandland. Its exterior design is the most striking point of the car. With its LED headlights, grille design that resembles a work of art, chrome details and sporty body lines, it has a dynamic car characteristic rather than a bulky SUV. When we go inside, we have stepped into the area where Peugeot is perhaps the most successful in recent years. Especially with the iCockpit concept, they use technology and practicality in the cabin perfectly. Finally, the large interior volume of the 5008 meets every feature you would expect from an SUV.
