The sophisticated interior is an invitation to experience comfort, serenity and luxury.

Maintaining its fresh and dignified leather and fabric dashboard and door panel décor, the dashboard is further illuminated by blue mood lighting touches all around the cabin.

This New 5008 SUV Plus can display an additional ‘Navigation’ mode to reflect map manoeuvres right in the driver’s eye level.
Peugeot i-Cockpit Amplify adds a touch of youthfulness to the cabin by allowing the adaptation of key settings enabled by two distinctive ambiances that evoke emotional satisfaction: ‘BOOST’ for a dynamic experience or ‘RELAX’ to envelope the occupants in a serene ambiance.
