Peugeot 5008 1.6 e-HDI ETG Review

Introduction, Exterior

The people-carrier category is one of the most fiercely competed segments in the car industry. Almost every mainstream manufacturer out there has at least two cars that competes here with their small-MPV and large-MPV offerings.

The Peugeot 5008 belongs to the former, competing with the likes of the Toyota Wish, Volkswagen Touran, and the Renault Grand Scenic. The 5008 had always been a strong contender in the market, with healthy sales numbers and positive owner reviews.

The versatile and spacious interior served families well, the punchy 1.6 Turbo motor pulled effortlessly, and drive itself was rather good too. Now, the newly face-lifted Peugeot 5008 was launched on local shores, and we took one out to see if the newer car has made any improvements over the winning formula of its predecessor.



The Peugeot 5008 has always been a good looking MPV, and the most recent facelift brings about a host of changes that updates the look of the car. The car now has the latest Peugeot family face, and is flanked by new headlamps incorporating smart looking LED daytime running lights.

The face-lifted 5008 looks less feminine than before, especially in darker colours, perhaps due to the elimination of the chrome accents below the headlights. This also gives the front fascia of the car a much cleaner look.

The rear remains the same, with the sleek rear LED lights wrapping around the rear three quarter corners of the car. The 16 inch rims are unchanged and carried over from its predecessor. In Artense Grey, our test car looked the part, sophisticated and sharp.

These guys are fast, responding the very next day with offers and more importantly higher than what was offered by the dealer whom I am buying my car from.

Yazz is very professional. He advised me on when to sell the car and checked in with me later. His dealer, Sam, was awesome. An understanding and kind man. He went the extra mile and accommodated our timing.
