The exterior of the car preserves some of the manufacturerâ€™s signature design elements seen in most of their previous models.
It features the typical Peugeot front grille with chromed lines but a bit larger than in smaller models. The headlights have a "c-shape" design while the air vents are shaped around the fog lights.
The car will come with total interior sound insulation. All seats are covered with black leather with grey lines on the edges.
The dashboard features digital gauges and instruments while the control panel has been separated from the navigation system placed right on top of the dashboard. The gearbox handle has been raised to create a step-like shape.
Adding a reworked body, improved interior and a few extra safety features, the 2014 Peugeot 5008 attempts to become a viable choice for drivers that want a fully functional hatchback that can also serve just as good as a station wagon.
