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 Premium

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.

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 and not as strong as the equivalent Seat Tarraco or Skoda Kodiaq.
