The all new Peugeot 5008 is based on the current Citroen C4 Picasso.
I first thought it was just a Picasso with a Peugeot front end, but it is more than that.
It does have its own design and doesn’t have the crazy futuristic interior of the Citroen version.
Here is the Citroen.

Yes Please! We need them both in the states. Our minivans are no longer mini! The Mazda5 excluded.
I almost bought a C4 Picasso about a year ago but was put off by the rather weird dash design, the rest of the interior was brilliant. Given that I have owned a Peugoet306 cabriolet with no problems other than the roof not retracting, I’d consider this Peugeot with a “normal” interior. On the other hand I’d have to sell my gorgeous Audi A3 2.0 turbo with DSG that I bought instead of the Citroen – now that would be hard!!
Peugeot’s design team screwed up on this one. It totally looks like the Renault Scénic, and the Citroën influence is still very obvious. Overall still a good looking car though, and NICE interior.
The interior looks very nice.
Mmm, maybe you should have posted the interior of the Picasso too. You may find it “crazy and futuristic”. I just think it is modern and interesting. By comparison, the Peugeot interior seems terribly conservative and boring. Weird combination, given that on the exterior they are apprently trying to give it a sportier air.
I had no clue that that a Peugeot version of the C4 Picasso was planned, and I agree on what the other guys here say: The Citroen influence is stronger as on any other Peogeot and the interior is totally conservative, compared to the C4´s.
So – is this the all new design direction, Peugeot was heading for?
Mr. Burlapp, please do not critize the interior design of the Citroen C4 Picasso. That's what the Citroen brand stands for: avant-garde, a touch of ultra-modernity and sci-fi. So if you want to buy a French PSA-car, you can choose your style between Peugeot and Citroen. In the 90s they mixed it and a Citroen was just a (bad) copy of a Peugeot. Thank God they have learned from these errors.
Would you buy a Peugeot?
No, I would rather buy a Citroën. In my view of esthetics that's the stronger statement.
