The new Peugeot 5008 SUV is packed with value, but many drivers have wondered whether the GT upgrade is worth the price. The range has a simple three tier model selection, and the 2018 Peugeot 5008 GT sits at the top of the range. With this latest release, we thought that itís the ideal time to examine the 8008 GT in more detail so that the customer can make a more informed decision.
The State of the SUV Segment
The Australia SUV sales segment is hotly contested, but it is not the arena where we typically see exciting vehicles worthy of genuine praise. In this respect alone, the 5008 GT has garnered a great deal of praise from the motoring press and car industry insiders. The 5008 is technically a large SUV, but it also seems to straddle both the large and medium segments. The styling is very attractive from every angle and is of a higher quality than any of the current crop of rivals. The vehicle is well priced and offers tremendous value for money with an excellent array of equipment fitted as standard.
The 5008 Equipment Levels
There is an extremely lengthy list of standard equipment, here are some of the highlights autonomous emergency braking (AEB), even seats, automatic headlights, adaptive cruise control with stop and go functionality, a 360 degree camera system, lane departure warnings, dual zone climate control with rear vents, front and rear parking sensors, an 8" touchscreen, 3D navigation, digital radio, voice recognition capability, six airbag (including 3rd row curtain), phone mirroring, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay support and wireless induction smartphone charging.
The 5008 GT Additional Equipment
As well as the aforementioned equipment the GT variant add other goodies, such as Alcantara dash and door inserts, an electric driver's seat with built in massage, heated front seats, chrome mirror shells, wheel arch extensions and 19" alloy wheels. The GT also gets the 2.0L turbo diesel engine which generates 140kW of power and 400 Nm of torque. This power plant is paired with a six speed automatic transmission with a claimed combined fuel consumption of 4.8L/100km.
