What Car? says...

Whether you like it or not, the popularity of SUVs has gone through the roof in the past decade. No longer do buyers want frumpy-looking MPVs; luxury, refinement and stylish looks are now the order of the day.

Peugeot is well aware of this and, instead of ignoring market demands like some French brands (see the Citroën Grand C4 Picasso and Renault Grand Scenic), has embraced it. The original 5008 was a traditional, boxy MPV but this current-generation model is quite firmly in the SUV camp and is a rival to the likes of the Skoda Kodiaq and Nissan X-Trail .

Like its smaller sibling, the 3008, the 5008 has a rather swish interior that, next to the functional dashboards of its rivals, makes it look like a motor show concept.

Yet, beyond aesthetics, the 5008 needs to be practical, cheap to run and good to drive if it’s to succeed in this extremely competitive class. Read on to find out exactly how good it is and which engines, trims and options we recommend.
