Review

The Peugeot 5008 is stylish, practical, good to drive and one of our favourite large SUVs. It's relatively affordable to buy and run, especially if you go for the entry-level 1.2-litre Puretech 130 petrol engine. If you need even more space the Kia Sorento is an even better bet.

get the best price

If you can stretch to the Allure trim it's worth it for the extra safety kit, including blind spot recognition, driver attention alert and lane assist, the infotainment upgrades, such as the 10.0in screen and sat-nav, plus other niceties like ambient interior lighting, privacy glass and 18in alloys. We'd ideally spend a fraction more to get Allure Premium trim, though.

You might be suspicious that the entry-level 129bhp 1.2-litre engine is too small but it’s eager to rev and packs enough punch for most people's performance needs. It takes 9.9sec to get from 0-62mph and with plentiful low-down shove it feels far stronger on the road than those numbers suggest. It's available with a six-speed manual gearbox or an optional slick eight-speed auto.
