Peugeot has revealed the first details of the 2017 5008.

The new Peugeot 5008 will be at the 2016 Paris Motor Show this month and will launch in the UK in spring 2017.

Externally changes include an upright chrome grille, prominent door creases and protruding side sills.

Inside there is now a 12.3-inch nstrument display and an eight-inch centre console touchscreen.

The rear passengers get access to power sockets, blinds and trays on the back of the front seats, plus hooks and their own cup holders.

The new 5008 has seven seats as standard and the third-row seats can be removed. Peugeot has made these rear seats 11kg lighter than they were in the previous 5008 to make their removing them easier.

Trim levels for the new 5008 will start with Active, since the less-equipped Access trim has been ditched for this market. Following Active is Allure, GT Line and the more performance-focused GT trim.

Engines include a selection of turbocharged petrol and diesel units from launch. On offer is a 1.2-litre petrol with 128bhp, with a six-speed manual or automatic gearbox. There’s also a 163bhp 1.6-litre petrol only in automatic, a 99bhp 1.6-litre diesel and 178bhp 2.0-litre diesel. The latter powers the GT model which uses the automatic gearbox only.
