Car reviews - Peugeot - 5008 - Allure
Staying true to its Parisian roots, Peugeot 5008 Allure makes us fall in love
2 Apr 2018
PEUGEOT has had a pretty tough run in Australia recently. Dwindling sales, an ageing model line-up and a change of importer have made for an interesting period. However, the bounce back began in August last year when the 3008 mid-size SUV burst into showrooms as one of the year’s most surprising newcomers.
Fast forward six months and Peugeot have rolled out the 5008, a seven-seat version of the slightly smaller 3008. On paper, this bodes pretty well for the French brand, but the 5008 wouldn’t be the first three-row mid-size SUV to try and do too much.
Peugeot clearly doesn’t care about precedents though, as it has thrown caution into the wind and created an ambitious interior and exterior design for the 5008. So, is it good different or bad different? We test the 5008 in entry-level Allure form to find out.
