2014 Peugeot 5008 - INTERIOR

By YouCar

Passengers travel in comfort and safety, with a curtain airbag covering all three rows. With a high level of sound insulation, conversation or audio equipment is easily heard by those in the rear. Irrespective of external conditions, the occupants can choose to be cooled or heated by the air conditioning diffused by the vents on the side pillars. So, all seats benefit from a comfortable temperature. In this large space, 1520mm of room at the elbows, no one is compromised as the seats offer the same quality of accommodation. The three seats in row 2 are of identical width and can be tilted. They also slide over 130mm to alter the legroom, so the travelling position is always comfortable. Access to the two real seats in row 3 is by moving the side seats in row 2. With an easy button movement, the seat cushion rises then the seat back moves forward (cinema seat style), permitting easy access. In addition, the seats of this last row are arranged in a space 1341mm wide at the elbows and staggered in relation to the row in front. The passengers therefore benefit from a clearer view forwards. For more enjoyable journeys, the 5008 has the option to be specified with a multimedia system perfectly integrated in the passenger compartment. It consists of two 7" colour screens, installed within the front head restraints, a connection console compatible with any portable audio/video equipment and two Bluetooth® wireless headphones. For the third passenger, additional headphones can be connected. This multimedia system is flexible and can play different sources on the two screens, allowing the passengers to choose different activities. To be successful, an MPV must place its passengers in a high level of comfort but also offer a large loading capacity. Compact on the outside (4.53m long, 1.84m wide), the 5008 rises to this challenge with a large boot capacity which is easy to use. When row 3 is retracted, the space under the shelf varies from 758 to 823-litres (579 to 678 dm3 VDA standard 210) depending on the position of the sliding seats. With row 2 also retracted, the volume is increased to 2506-litres (1754 dm3), a remarkable loading capacity. In this configuration, the surface of the floor is completely flat from the boot sill to the front seats. It is also possible to place the passenger seat in the table position to a loading length of 2.76m. ► SUBSCRIBE NOW: ► FACEBOOK: ► TWITTER: ► GOOGLE+:
