When the whole family is on board, safety is the number one priority. The 5008 has both active and passive safety equipment, based on state-of-the-art technology, to look after you and your passengers, allowing you to travel with greater peace of mind.
The airbags in the 5008 can protect all the passengers, no matter where they are sitting, even in the very back seats, a feature only usually found in larger MPVs. The 5008 has a total of 6 airbags as standard: 2 in the front (the passenger airbag can be deactivated if you need to install a child seat), 2 front side airbags and 2 curtain airbags for the front and middle seats. Airbags are available as an optional extra in the 7-seat version.
Intelligent traction control
This intelligent anti-skid system adds an extra dimension to traditional anti-skid protection. It senses situations when there may be a danger of skidding, such as when you are having difficulty starting or you are driving on icy or snowy roads. The Intelligent Traction Control system then takes over from the ASR function, reducing the amount of front-wheel skid to ensure proper road-holding and to keep you heading the right way.
For additional safety and even greater control, there is an innovative alert system to help you keep a safe distance from other cars. On the head-up display*, it tells you how many seconds you are from the car in front. A visual alert can be activated when you reach a certain distance from the vehicle in front – you can use rocker switches to set the distance you want the alert to be activated at. *Available as an option, depending on version
The immobiliser system electronically (locks) the Engine Management ECU, which prevents the vehicle from starting. A transponder chip is incorporated into the ignition key of the vehicle, which contains the necessary codes to enable the engine ECU to be unlocked.
