Peugeot 5008 1.6 e-THP Allure 7-Seater Review

Chrome bits of trim makes the Pug a little more expensive-looking, with a form-cheating strip of trim at the rear, creating an impression of more forward-lean

The previous 5008 came across as a proper MPV. Proper, meant also that it did not leave much of an impression. Perhaps Peugeot product people heard that one loud and clear, and now have returned with a SUV-inspired MPV, or would this be an MPV-inspired SUV?

Whichever way it is, one cannot deny, that it does have an ‘X’ factor about it, with styling clearly reflecting Peugeot’s new and edgier design language, and perhaps the French may have a thing or two to show the competition, when it comes to being chic.

The previous car had somewhat mellow sculpting, presenting a smiley face and cheeky looking “eyes”. The new car however features aggressively-penned strokes, with a meaner-looking front end, and edgy headlamp styling. Essentially the 5008 is a 3008  with enough room for seven, thanks to the lengthened wheelbase at 2,840mm, and a more upright D pillar.

Chrome bits of trim makes the Pug a little more expensive-looking, with a form-cheating strip of trim at the rear, creating an impression of more forward-lean.

In keeping up with its SUV appearance, the lower front bumper lip also gets a decorative scruff plate, plenty of black plastic around the wheel arches and on the bumpers. The 18” alloys are fitted with 225/55 tyres.

Our Allure trim test car also features faux black plastic tailpipes integrated into the bumper mouldings. Why, plenty of posing going on here!
