Review

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. If you regularly carry around lots of people and luggage, the more powerful engines are also worth a look.

get the best price

Adds over the GT Line heated front seats, massaging driver's seat, keyless entry and start, a powered gesture-controlled tailgate, a panoramic glass sunroof and 19in alloy wheels. However, it's pricey, the panoramic roof reduces rear head room heavily and the 19in wheels don’t do the ride any favours.

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.
