Just like the smaller sibling, 3008, this mid-size crossover is also about to come with big changes in about two or three years. The current generation has been around for a while, but the company already works on the next generation, which is about to come as 2023 Peugeot 5008. Once again, we are about to see big changes, just like with the previous overhaul.
The current generation came three years ago and it has brought significant changes. While the original model was a pure minivan, the second generation cane in 2017, as a typical crossover. It is a stretched version of the compact 3008 and it is also about to receive a complete overhaul in two or three years. One of the biggest novelties for this occasion will be the all-electric powertrain.
2023 Peugeot 5008 Will Go All-Electric
As we’ve just mentioned, the 2023 Peugeot 5008 is about to come completely redesigned and among many changes, it will also come with a new, all-electric powertrain. At this point, the exact details are still unavailable. Still, our insiders suggest that the new electric model will come in two variants. Base versions will probably come with a single electric motor, with around 200-250 horsepower. On the other side, higher trim levels will probably be available with an additional electric motor and a max output that goes over 300 horsepower. We may also presume that there would be at least two battery packages in the offer, some kind of standard and long-range versions.
2023 Peugeot 5008 Redesign
Besides the new all-electric powertrain, the 2023 Peugeot 5008 will also receive a complete overhaul. This means loads of changes and among them, we will see plenty of changes that will adapt this crossover for the international market. Currently, this crossover is sold primarily in Europe. Still, various sources suggest that the new version will be offered in the Asian market as well.
In terms of base design characteristics, the new 2023 Peugeot 5008 will slightly grow in size, while we count on a new platform as well. Of course, a new styling is a certain thing, as well as the new interior design. However, it’s still early to talk about details.
2023 Peugeot 5008 Release Date
As we already mentioned, the new 2023 Peugeot 5008 is about to hit the market sometime in about two or three years. It’s still early for more precise dates.
Peugeot 5008: Meanwhile
While we are waiting for the new, electric 2023 Peugeot 5008, the current generation will remain in production for several more years. It has been around since 2017 and the next year might be a perfect time to see some updates. This particularly refers to the styling, so we might see a facelift. This means loads of new styling details, particularly at the front end. Of course, it would take a lot of inspiration from the 508 sedan. On the other side, interior design shouldn’t change drastically. We count on the same, futuristic dashboard design, while there is always room for novelties in terms of standard equipment.
Changes under the hood are not expected. You may count on familiar engine options, where the offer starts with a small 1.2-liter turbo-gasoline with around 130 horsepower. There is also a bigger and more powerful 1.6-liter turbo-four, which delivers around 180 horsepower and moves this crossover from zero to 100 km/h in less than 8 seconds.
When it comes to diesel engines, there is a smaller 1.6-liter HDI that puts out either 100 or 120 horsepower. A newer-generation 1.5-liter HDI is good for 130 horsepower but moves this car notably quicker. Still, a large 2.0-liter HDI is probably the best choice, whether you pick a version with 150 or 177 horsepower.
