Peugeot has unveiled its new 5008 MPV - a rival to sister company Citroen's Grand C4/C4 Picasso.

The seats in the second row can be reclined individually, and the back row folds flat to give 2506 litres of luggage capacity. The front passenger seat also folds down to allow long objects to be loaded as far as the dashboard.

The 5008 will be available with one petrol engine and two diesel units with a range of power outputs. The 156bhp 1.6-litre petrol is capable of an average fuel economy of 39.7mpg, while the 2.0-litre diesel 150bhp returns 48.7mpg.

Features include a head-up display that shows both speed and distance alerts, and 'Snow Motion', which is a traction control system designed to make it easier to drive on snow and ice.

The 5008 will be launched at the Frankfurt motor show in September and will go on sale in the UK at the beginning of next year. Prices are likely to start at around 15,000.
