With the all-new 2018 Peugeot 5008 , French car manufacturer Peugeot has launched its third crossover model in the region and will hope to attract buyers in a cutthroat segment including rivals like the Nissan X-Trail, Hyundai Tucson, Kia Sorento, Mazda CX-5 and the rest.

Powered by a 1.6-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine the 2018 Peugeot 5008 is efficiency minded, but the little lump still musters up over 160 horsepower and 240Nm of torque from as low as 1,400rpm. It’s also got a lot of Peugeot to motivate — the 5008 has amongst the longest wheelbases in class at 2,840mm, so you get what Peugeot claims is the biggest boot amongst its peers with a capacity of 1,060 liters.

Partly due to the lightweight and compact powerplant Peugeot has kept the car’s kerb weight commendably down to below 1.5 tonnes, and it starts to make sense when you consider the 2018 5008 is based on the Citroen C4 from its sibling brand using the group’s latest EMP2 modular vehicle platform. So it should drive rather well, too.

Peugeot is going after value-minded buyers with the new 5008, cramming the car full of kit such as a Focal sound system, multipoint massage system (an optional feature, of course), large panoramic roof, navigation system and all the safety technologies you can abbreviate.

In our region the 2018 Peugeot 5008 is available now, with prices starting from AED99,900 for the entry-level model and going up to AED129,900 for the full-options version. That’s right on the money if Peugeot hopes to compete with the segment’s finest crossovers such as the Volkswagen Tiguan from AED90,000 and the Honda CR-V also from AED90,000. We look forward to driving this soon, so watch out for a full review on AutoMiddleEast.com.
