The old Peugeot 5008 was a fairly chunky MPV. It was bang-on for its time (it was our MPV of the Year in 2010) but in recent years family buyers have been moving out of MPVs and into SUVs, with their raised driving positions and added practicality. The MPV market is shrinking fast, which is why the latest 5008 has morphed into a fully fledged SUV.

There's plenty of competition in the large SUV market, too, but the 5008's blend of low CO2 emissions, flexible seating and comfortable ride have made it one of our favourites. In fact, we named it as our Large SUV of the Year for 2018 at the most recent What Car? Awards, where the Peugeot triumphed over more expensive rivals including the Mazda CX-5 and Audi Q5. To see the full scale of Peugeot's achievement, read our full 16-point review.

Our recommended 5008 models match the smooth yet punchy 1.2-litre Puretech 130 petrol engine with Allure specification, which gets you most of the kit you're likely to want: front and rear parking sensors, sat-nav and 18in alloy wheels all come as standard. Because the 5008 is competitively priced next to its key rivals, though, you can afford to splash out a little on some choice options, and in this slideshow we'll show you which option boxes to tick, and which to avoid.
