The 2009 Frankfurt Auto Show, currently in play, marked the first public appearance of the Peugeot 5008, a model that got detailed for the first time earlier this year in June. The car will go on sale this autumn but Peugeot hasn't yet released pricing details for any of the available trims.

The car will be offered in a choice of six engines, two petrol and four diesels. The output is ranging in between 110 and 163 hp (full engine details are available at the end of the article).

Peugeot 5008 will be released in either five- or seven-seat configurations, with the trunk volume and the roomy interior representing two of the main attributes. The car's windscreen has a total of 1.7 square meters and it is continued by the 1.69 square meters panoramic roof. The glazed surfaces on the 5008 total a whooping 5.77 square meters, side window included, of course.

There are several features included, offered either as optional or standard: two 7-inch color screens in the front seat head restraints, a connection panel for different types of mobile audio/video equipment (video console, games consoles, DVD player) and two Bluetooth wireless headsets, ESP, six air bags, automatic electric parking brake with "hill assist" function, fasten seat belt warnings on all seats and tire under-inflation detection.
