Overall verdict on the Peugeot 5008

"The Peugeot 5008 is undoubtedly one of the best cars of its type. Importantly, it has the practicality and versatility to match any rival, while it’s also comfortable, entertaining and refined to drive, and comes well-stocked with luxury and safety kit. Even better, it’s more stylish than most rivals and has a jaw-droppingly attractive interior."

Peugeot 5008 2021

They say good things home to those who wait, and looking at the Peugeot 5008, they may well have a point. You see, it took Peugeot a wee bit of time to get the car right.


The first-generation car was good on practicality and everything, but it had some fairly fundamental flaws. The ride was a bit firm, the quality was a bit iffy in places, but most importantly, it looked horrendous. With an MPV shape that Peugeot tried to embellish with a few SUV-style touches, the result was awkward and unattractive. It still did okay sales-wise, so the appetite was certainly there, but it could’ve been so much more.


Happily, Peugeot learned the lessons when cooking up the latest incarnation, and the result is unquestionably one of the finest cars of its type. It’s a proper SUV this time, with no schizophrenia about its styling, and one of the more handsome ones in the class at that thanks to its bold, flamboyant features. 


If you really want flamboyant, though, all you need to do is open a door and look inside. The interior in this car is like nothing else in the class. With sophisticated design, gorgeous materials and thoughtful, stylish finishes, it feels more comparable to more expensive SUVS from the likes of Audi and Mercedes than it does to the Skodas and SEATs of the world.


What’s more, the 5008 also has the other important bit of any seven-seat SUV - practicality - nailed, too. One of the roomier cars of its type in any of its seven seats, it’s better than most rivals when faced with the task of carrying seven adults. And, with seven individual seats that fold and flip in all sorts of genius ways, it’s a versatile load-carrier, too. Yes, one or two key bits of equipment are reserved for the range-topping models, but most versions come with most of what you need for a comfortable family life.


And talking of comfort, the ride that was brittle and unsettled in the first-generation car has become much, much more forgiving. This is now one of the comfiest cars in the class, and in a car that’s designed to ferry lots of people around, that’s the most important thing. That handling is stable and assured, meanwhile, while even the entry-level petrol and diesel engines provide impressive punch, excellent economy and really good refinement.


Granted, it’s not perfect. The infotainment system can be confusing and frustrating to use, even after you’ve familiarised yourself with its foibles, and if you go for a version with the panoramic roof (standard on the top two trims, optional on most of the others), the amount of headroom you get is absolutely ruined. 


Other than that, though, there’s very little to complain about, so the 5008 is an impressive all-rounder as well as one of the more desirable cars in the class. It’s well worthy of anyone’s consideration, and one of our favourite SUVs.

Is the Peugot 5008 right for you?

There are lots of seven-seater SUV out there on the market these days, and there are even more that can be specified with seven seats as an optional extra. Question is, with such choice on offer, which one do you choose?


Well, let’s first look at why people buy SUVs: it’s because they provide the practicality that a family needs along with the style that buyers want. 


Well, if you’re particularly focused on the latter, then the 5008 could well be the car for you. It’s bold exterior design really stands out when compared with somewhat conservative rivals, and when you climb inside, its interior has the quality, sophistication and glamour to blow the rest away. Even better, it’s still got the practicality bit covered, too, as it’s one of the roomiest, most versatile cars in the class.

What’s the best Peugot 5008 model/engine to choose?

The answer is very simple on the trim front. Entry-level Active trim comes with most of what you need in your life, but we reckon it’s worth spending the extra for Allure trim, which adds front- and rear parking sensors, a reversing camera, part-leather-effect upholstery, a folding front passenger seat (really handy when carrying particularly long items of cargo), sat-nav, lane-keeping assistance and a blind-spot monitor. As a result, we think this is the version that provides the best balance of kit and cost.


On the engine front, it depends what kind of driving you do. Whatever the case, there’s very little reason to look beyond the entry-level petrol and diesel options, both of which provide perfectly adequate performance and seriously impressive running costs. If your journeys are short, though, you’ll be financially better off with the 1.2 Puretech petrol, but if you regularly do long distances, you’ll want the 1.5 BlueHDi diesel.

What other cars are similar to the Peugeot 5008?

The Peugeot 5008 sits at the more compact, more affordable end of the seven-seat SUV scale, and there are plenty of rivals that do likewise, including the Skoda Kodiaq, SEAT Tarraco and Land Rover Discovery Sport. You can also specify the Honda CR-V and Nissan X-Trail with seven seats rather than five.


The Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace is also similar in size but bigger on price, being more comparable with bigger cars such as the Kia Sorento and Hyundai Santa Fe on how much you’ll pay.

Is the Peugeot 5008 a good car?

It’s a great car for families with a lot of stuff to move, since the seating and boot flexibility give lots of options for carrying passengers or luggage. One of the best big SUVs around.

Is the Peugeot 5008 a 4x4?

No. If you are planning anything more adventurous than crossing a muddy playing field, then there are better alternatives, since all the current versions of the 5008 are front-wheel drive.
