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
The top-spec model throws in a 360deg parking camera, an electrically operated driver’s seat with four-way lumbar support and memory recall. You also get nappa leather seat trim, 19in alloy wheels, adaptive cruise control and a punchy-sounding Focal premium sound system. However, it's not cheap and the panoramic sunroof robs rear head room.
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. It's also very smooth and quiet for a diesel and comes as standard with an eight-speed automatic gearbox, but it's quite expensive.
