2017 Peugeot 5008 verdict and specs
The Peugeot 5008 MPV has been turned into an SUV, and from our first drive it’s looking like an inspired move by the French brand...
Should I buy one?
Our first drive of the new Peugeot 5008 has revealed it to be a dynamically capable and impressively practical seven-seater SUV.
However, it’s important to note that so far we've only driven the high-powered diesel model, which is likely to be priced north of £29,000 and therefore not worth considering for the majority of buyers when you consider the rivals you can have in the same price band.
On the other hand, the 1.2-litre petrol and 1.6-litre diesel should be much more affordable. Given the 5008's other strengths, it has the potential to be a genuine threat to the class-leading Skoda Kodiaq in these forms.
