The 5008 is stylish, practical and good to drive. It's one of the best seven-seat SUVs you can buyread the full model review
Entry-level Active comes with all-round electric windows, dual-zone climate control, rear parking sensors, 17in alloy wheels, auto lights and wipers, a height-adjustable driver’s seat, cruise control, seven seats and an 8.0in infotainment screen with DAB radio, Bluetooth and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone mirroring. You also get a 12.3in screen containing configurable digital instruments. On the safety side, it comes with automatic emergency braking, speed limit display and lane departure warning. That’s not bad, but we’d still suggest the next model up.
You might think that the entry-level 129bhp 1.2-litre engine would be too small to power a seven-seat SUV, but it’s actually surprisingly peppy, eager to rev, and plenty good enough to meet most people's performance aspirations. It’s frugal, managing 36mpg in our True MPG real-world economy test, quiet and available with a choice of a six-speed manual or automatic gearboxes.
