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
Trim: GT Line
Additions over Allure include rear window blinds, wireless phone charging and LED headlights. You also get nicer trims inside, but it’s not really worth the extra outlay in our book.
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.
