A wild production model with lots of sex appeal and an overall design that stands out in the crowd

In an ever changing world, brand’s like Peugeot need to keep up with the trends. The most recent evidence that the company knows how to do such a thing comes in the form of the all-new Peugeot 5008. What was once an ugly little MPV that looked like a poorly designed minivan has been morphed into a full-fledged SUV with stylish looks that rival that of larger and more popular brands – even here in the U.S. Boasting the best generational redesign that I’ve seen in years, the new 5008 features a long, muscular hood, sporty side profile, sexy rear end, luxurious interior, a host of driver assistance features, and handful of powerful and efficient engines. In short, the new 5008 is finally the SUV it was always meant to be.

The new 5008 is set to make its debut at the Paris Auto Show, but Peugeot couldn’t wait to show the public its latest creation and decided to drop a decent collection of photos and some fresh information. We don’t know everything yet – in fact, Peugeot hasn’t even divulged any major engine information, so there’s plenty more to come. But, we still have a lot to talk about, so let’s go over what we know now and speculate a little about what we don’t know.

Peugeot Breaks New Ground With New 5008 SUV

Peugeot Breaks New Ground With New 5008 SUV

Next-gen 5008 brings seating for seven in Paris

French automaker Peugeot is in the middle of a comprehensive reorganization of its lineup. The strategy saw two important vehicles being overhauled, with both the 3008 and 5008 ditching their MPV roots to become full-fledged SUVs. The 5008 just made its public debut at the 2016 Paris Motor Show, where it displayed its new, imposing appearance with sculpted body lines integrated into the company’s latest design language.

On the outside, the new 5008 is quite the looker. No longer a spacious, yet ugly MPV, the 5008 has everything it needs to compete against crossovers like the Volkswagen Tiguan and the new Skoda Kodiaq. It’s also the better looking proposition (to me, at least) and has the advantage of a seven-seat layout. The third-row seats are foldable and easy to remove, which will give the 5008 an impressive cargo capacity of 37.4 cubic-feet.

Besides the dramatic change of appearance and the versatile interior, the 5008 also comes with numerous luxury options. Highlights include a panoramic glass roof, massage-function seats, and a premium sound system. It also features a comprehensive package of safety and driver assist features such as hill ascent/descent control, automatic emergency braking, lane-keeping assistance, and advanced grip control. Adaptive cruise control and a 360-degree parking camera are also offered in order to make driving long distances and parking easier.

As usual, the engine lineup includes the already familiar small-displacement, four-cylinder engines. Gasoline options include the 1.2- and 1.6-liter units, while the diesel lineup consists of 1.6- and 2.0-liter mills. These can be paired to five-speed manual, six-speed manual, and six-speed automatic transmissions. The only downside is that the 5008 can’t be had with an all-wheel-drive system. Peugeot offers a clever traction control function, but the lack of a proper AWD system will leave some potential customers disappointed.

2013 Peugeot 5008

2013 Peugeot 5008

Just like every other model in Peugeot’s line-up, the 5008 MPV is also preparing to enter its second generation. It was first launched back in 2009 and its success was almost instantaneous. That being said, Peugeot has to keep up with the times in order for that success to continue.

The new 5008 will be based on a new platform that appears to be slightly wider than the current one, illustrated by the testing mule’s wider fenders. Other changes seen in the spy shots include five wheel bolts instead of the current four and the location of the fuel cap (it has switched sides). But no matter what changes are being done on the exterior, the 5008 will get bigger dimensions, especially on the inside. This will allow up to seven people the room that they need.

The engine line-up will be shared with the upcoming 301, the successor to the 308, which means a wide range of diesel and petrol engines as well as a diesel-hybrid. Just like with every other model in the line-up, Peugeot will be focusing on reducing fuel consumption and Co2 emissions.

Peugeot releases new ad on soon-to-be released 508

Peugeot releases new ad on soon-to-be released 508

Peugeot’s new flagship sedan, the 508, is scheduled to make its world debut at the Paris Motor Show later this month, but the Lion brand is doing a pre-emptive strike on the proceedings by releasing a full-length ad of both the sedan and wagon variant of the 508.

The video gives us a nice little preview of what to expect when the car makes its debut in Paris at the end of September. In addition to the two unique style variants, the ad showed us a few of the 508’s features, including a start-stop push button, a pop-up information display, and a panoramic sun-roof, which we’ve been told will come as an optional feature for anyone who might want to add it in to their cars.

Shortly after making its Paris debut, the 508 is expected to find its way into dealerships sometime in the first quarter of next year where it is expected to be available in a number of engine and fuel variants with a hybrid version set to follow suit in a year’s time.

Peugeot’s new ad for the 5008 has unsuspecting guest in Woody from Toy Story franchise

There’s nothing like attaching your brand into a movie that’s expected to be a box office hit. You know that just being mentioned in the movie is about as good as any kind of advertising will give you.

Peugeot seems to think that attaching itself to a highly-anticipated movie, like Toy Story, and making a commercial featuring the lovable Woody would go over, not just to the die-hard fans of the ground-breaking CGI movie franchise, but also to fans of anything and everything that’s involved with the automobile. So they did, and the result is a 30-second spot featuring a Pegueot 5008 and Woody, who searches the car for his hat, only to have the 5008 demonstrate a pretty nifty feature of its car, specifically the versatile seating and its rear child mirror.

We don’t really know what this commercial accomplishes other than that the tie-up with a movie like Toy Story will surely give Pegueot as much exposure as it can possibly expect. And at the end of the day, as with the tenet of commercials, exposure is the name of the game and the 5008 being seen in a commercial featuring Woody from Toy Story is about as good an exposure as the French automaker can get with these sort of movie tie-ups.
