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.

Yes, this Nissan X-Trail, Seat Tarraco and Skoda Kodiaq rival is roughly half the price of most posh-badged luxury SUVs, such as the Audi Q7 and Volvo XC90, yet it offers many of the same virtues, including a lofty driving position, a smart interior and first-class safety provisions.

Okay, it doesn't occupy quite as much space on the road as most luxury SUVs, but you might think that's a good thing – especially given that the 5008 will still happily haul around seven adults in comfort and use a good deal less fuel in the process.

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 it has any, are its vices? How does it square up against its similarly priced rivals?

Read on and we'll tell you all you need to know, including which engines, trims and 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.
