The Peugeot 5008 is stylish, practical, good to drive and our favourite large SUV. It's relatively affordable to run, especially if you go for the entry-level 1.2-litre 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
You get everything that the Active model gets, plus sat-nav, front and rear parking sensors, a rear-view camera, privacy glass, driver’s seat lumbar adjustment, rear picnic tables and 18in alloy wheels. You also get more safety features, including a driver attention indicator, lane assist, blindspot warning, auto high beams and an SOS emergency response feature. It's our pick of the range but we’d suggest adding the optional package that includes keyless entry and start along with a gesture-controlled, powered tailgate.
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 surprisingly peppy, eager to rev, and plenty good enough to meet most people's performance aspirations. It’s also reasonably frugal (managing 36mpg in our True MPG real-world economy test), smooth and available with a choice of a six-speed manual or eight-speed automatic gearbox.
