The first generation was unveiled in July 2008 and has been on sale since November 2009.[1]

DesignEdit

The 5008 shares core structure and mechanical components with the first generation Citroën C4 Grand Picasso.[2] The 5008 was awarded 2010 MPV of the Year by What Car? magazine.[3] Owing to its spacious interior and futuristic design, the 5008 has been developed a loyal fan base who colloquially refer to the car as the 'Space Wagon'. But this name has been used by Mitsubishi since 1983 for its own Space Wagon.

AvailabilityEdit

The 5008 was available in North Africa, South America, Australia and Europe (excluding Ukraine and Russia). It was available in twelve countries in Asia and the Middle East: Israel, UAE, Saudi Arabia, Kazakhstan, Japan, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Brunei, Singapore, Malaysia, the Philippines and Indonesia.

The second generation is an SUV, unveiled to the press on 7 September 2016, before a presentation to the public scheduled for the 2016 Paris Motor Show. It is essentially a seven seater version of the Peugeot 3008, which was to be released in the spring of 2017.

It competes with other crossovers, such as the Skoda Kodiaq, Hyundai Tucson, Kia Sportage, Nissan X-Trail, Ford Kuga, Jeep Cherokee, Volkswagen Tiguan, Dodge Journey, Subaru Forester, Honda CR-V, and Toyota RAV4.

The 5008 II is assembled in France at the PSA plant in Rennes. Assembly in China takes place at the Dongfeng-PSA plant in Chengdu together with the 3008 II (called the 4008 in China) and the Citroën C5 Aircross. In China, these three models all share the same platform, engines and transmission.

DesignEdit

Unlike the previous generation that was a pure MPV, the 5008 II is displayed as an SUV to follow a current trend in sales. It is actually an extended version of the 3008, presented a several months previously. Specific elements include a different front grille and front bumper, and a chrome arch running through the entire pavilion to the bottom of the rear window.

In the same way, the interior essentially takes up the iCockpit of its cousin. In particular, the 8 inch captive touchscreen, but also a 12.3 inch high resolution digital head up panel, is available.

On the other hand, the wheelbase extended to 2.84 m makes it possible to significantly increase the capacity; seven places are now available, divided into three rows. On the first, the passenger seat can be shelved to load the long objects. The second row is composed of three independent seats, retractable and adjustable in length and inclination.

Finally, the third includes two additional seats, also independent and retractable, but also extractable.
