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.

Trim: Active

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: 1.5 BlueHDi

The 129bhp 1.5-litre diesel keeps running costs low (45-50mpg is achievable in the real world without too much effort). It's a little grumbly, especially when cold, and isn't super quick flat out (0-62mph takes around 11sec) but has enough mid-range shove to satisfy most people. It's our pick of the diesels when you factor in price and running costs.
