Introduction

What Car? says...

There are plenty of desirable, seven-seat SUVs to choose from if you have a far-reaching budget, but the Peugeot 5008 proves you don't necessarily need deep pockets to bag yourself a good 'un.

It's roughly half the price of most seven-seat luxury SUVs with a posh badge, such as the Audi Q7 and Volvo XC90, and yet it offers many of the virtues, including a lofty driving position, a smart interior and first-class safety provisions.

Okay, it might not be as imposing as those cars because its footprint isn’t as big, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing – you'll appreciate the fewer inches when it comes to parking. And without giving the game away too much at the start, the 5008 is still more than big enough to haul around seven happy adults in relative comfort.

The 5008 is from good stock, too, being essentially a roomier version of the excellent Peugeot 3008. So, you know already that the 5008 is a fine bet, but that still leaves potential questions. What makes it so good? What, if any, are its vices? How does it square up against its similarly priced rivals, like the Kia Sorento, Nissan X-Trail, Seat Tarraco and Skoda Kodiaq?

Read on and we'll tell you all you need to know, including the engine, the trim and the options we recommend. And if you do decide to take the plunge on a Peugeot, or indeed any other large SUV, check out our New Car Buying service for big savings on the Peugeot 5008 without any awkward haggling.
