Peugeot has revealed a new-look version of its largest SUV, the 5008.
Coming hot on the heels of the facelifted 3008, revealed earlier this week, the 5008 gets design tweaks including a new frameless grille, new front bumper, and new front lights and tail lights.
Inside, there's a new 10in infotainment touchscreen, with 'piano key' shortcuts for major functions, alongside Peugeot's i-Cockpit driver information display.
Newly available technology includes an infrared night vision system, while adaptive cruise control with stop and go is standard on cars with automatic gearboxes.
The 5008 also comes with autonomous emergency braking that works at up to 86mph.
Four engine options are available: a 1.2-litre, 130hp petrol; a 1.6-litre, 180hp petrol; a 1.5-litre, 130hp diesel; and a 2.0-litre, 180hp diesel.
The 130hp engines come with either six-speed manual or eight-speed automatic transmission, while the 180hp engines are auto-only.
Like with the 3008, Peugeot is giving the 5008 an extended range line-up, with new Premium grades filling in the gaps, so the range now reads Active, Active Premium, Allure, Allure Premium, GT, and GT Premium.
Standard kit with entry-level Active cars - which Peugeot says will be reserved for specialist fleets only - includes 17in alloy wheels, dual-zone air conditioning, and a rear parking aid, while Active Premium adds Apple Carplay and Android Auto connectivity, electrically folding door mirrors, a reserving camera and a front parking aid.
Allure spec adds kit including 18in alloys, tinted windows, aluminium roof rails, a Safety Plus pack and sat-nav, while Allure Premium adds keyless entry and go.
GT spec features full LED headlights - including 'fog mode' which replaces conventional fog lights - a Drive Assist Plus package and Alcantara/leather effect upholstery.
Range-topping GT Premium adds features including 19in wheels, a hands-free tailgate, a 360-degree camera system, automated parking assistance and massaging seats.
The revised 5008 will arrive in UK showrooms in the coming months. Prices are yet to be announced.
