The 5008 is stylish, practical and good to drive. It's also relatively affordable to run, especially if you go for the peppy, but still efficient and frugal, 1.2 Puretech 130 petrol. If you're not bothered about seven seats and fancy something a little better equipped then the Mazda CX-5 is well worth considering, but otherwise, for our money the 5008 is one of the best seven-seat SUVs you can buy.read the full model review
Adds over Allure a plumbed-in interior air freshener, wireless phone charging, part-leather-effect seat trim and LED headlights. You also get nicer trims inside, but it’s not really worth the extra outlay in our book.
Engine:2.0 BlueHDi 180
This 175bhp engine is flexible and has no trouble dealing with hefty loads. With the power and shove it has driving just the front wheels (you cannot get four-wheel drive with the 5008) it can scrabble for grip when accelerating hard from a standstill but, once moving, feels pretty brisk for such a big family wagon. Comes as standard with an eight-speed automatic gearbox.
