NASIM LAUNCHES 5008 AT KLIMS 2010 at RM159,888.00
Nasim Sdn Bhd today launched the award-winning and highly acclaimed Peugeot 5008 at the 2010 Kuala Lumpur International Motor Show (KLIMS), marking the French carmaker’s entry into the domestic premium MPV market.The seven-seater 5008 comes with an on-the-road price of RM159,888. Inside, the 5008, features a luxurious interior equipped with a stunning 18 sq ft panoramic glass roof and plush leather interior. Technology and entertainment is a key characteristic of the 5008’s interior with the inclusion of two seven-inch LCD screens located in the front seat head restraints, two Bluetooth wireless headsets and a connection console which can be connected to a DVD player or video-gaming consoles. The connection console makes it possible to connect two video sources simultaneously making each screen independent in terms of the image shown. That way, one passenger can, for example, watch a movie while the other plays a video game.
The 5008 features a head-up display unit (HUD) which displays essential driving information such as speed, cruise control/speed limiter and Distance Alert. Distance Alert is a technology which assists the driver in ensuring the 5008 is within a safe distance from the vehicle ahead. This technology is made possible by a radar located behind the lower front bumper panel which measures the time in seconds between the vehicle in front and then transmits this data to the HUD. This non-intrusive alert system, which can be set between 0.9 seconds and 2.5 seconds, will alert the driver if the 5008 gets too close to the vehicle in front. For safety, the 5008 has a five-star NCAP safety rating, six airbags, Hill Start Assist, ESP, ABS, EBD, EBA, Anti-Skid Regulation, Dynamic Stability Control and anti-whiplash front seat headrests. Fuel consumption on a mixed cycle in the 5008 is 7.9-litres per 100 km.Enjoyed by families and loved by drivers, the 5008 can viewed exclusively at KLIMS 2010 from Dec 3 to 12
