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.

Trim: GT Line

Additions over Allure include rear window blinds, picnic tables on the back of the front seats, carpeted door bins, 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: 1.5 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 13sec) 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.
