Peugeot decided that it is time for a change in its lineup and as a result it unveiled today the 2014 Peugeot 5008 Facelift and announced that it will bring the car at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show (IAA) in September. The first visual impact with the car shows a new front appearance marked by the redesigned headlamps, the well-known thin floating grille with chromed bead detailing across the width of the car and redesigned taillights.
The design is confirmed by the measurements, with a Cd of just 0.29. The compact MPV is available in nine colors among the new Rich Oak and Artense Grey and customers can choose the new 17-inch diamond Anthra Grey alloy wheels.
The spacious atmosphere on board benefits from the considerable glazed surface area (5.77m²) contributed to by the extensive panoramic roof (2.69m²). On the Allure level, the door sills are covered in aluminum and hallmarked with the marque name.
Moreover, the interior can feature two optional seven-inch color screen installed in the head restrains that come with two Bluetooth headphones and a connection console for various audio and video equipment. A head-up display is also available and shows the driver important info such as speed or other data. Under the hood we find a choice of 2 diesel and 2 petrol engines.
