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 that 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 same 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 – indeed, you'll appreciate that when parking. And without giving the game away too much at the start, the Peugeot 5008 is still more than big enough to haul around seven 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 has its good points, but that still leaves two key questions. What are its vices? And how well does it square up against similarly priced rivals, including 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 optional extras we recommend. And if you do decide to take the plunge on a Peugeot, or indeed any other large SUV, head over to our New Car Buying service for big savings without any awkward haggling.
