Not so long ago, frumpy-looking MPVs were the natural choice of families who need a lot of space in a car. These days, though, SUVs rule the roost. By combining the virtues of versatility, luxury and refinement with stylish good looks, they're pretty much all families are buying these days.

Peugeot is well aware of this and, instead of ignoring market trends like some French brands have (see the Citroën Grand C4 Picasso and Renault Grand Scenic), has embraced it. While the original Peugeot 5008 was a traditional, boxy MPV, this current-generation is quite firmly in the SUV camp and fighting fit to do battle with Large SUV rivals that include the Skoda Kodiaq and Nissan X-Trail .

Like its smaller sibling, the 3008, the 5008 has a rather swish interior that gives it the spirit of a motor show concept, making rivals seem rather dull and functional compared to rivals. However, style isn't everything, and the 5008 also 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. If you do decide to take the plunge on a Peugeot, check out our new car deals here for substantial savings.
