The Peugeot 5008 is stylish, practical and good to drive. It's also relatively affordable to run, especially if you go for the entry-level 1.2 Puretech 130 petrol engine, although if you regularly carry around lots of people and bags, the more powerful engines are also worth a look.get the best price
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.
Engine: 1.2 PureTech
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.
