Peugeot 5008

The 5008 has changed from a people carrier into a chunky SUV, it’s a whopper too at 4.64 meters in length with a 2.84 metre wheelbase, a full seven seater with three matched sized seats in the second row and two removable seats in the third row which once removed create a cavernous 1060 litres of boot space.

All 5008 models come with an eight-inch touchscreen infotainment system and a 12.3-inch digital driver’s display alongside smartphone mirroring, dual-zone climate control and rear parking sensors. Both front seats are height-adjustable. Allure models come with the same eight-inch touchscreen, 12.3-inch digital driver’s display and dual-zone climate control as cheaper Active models, but add sat-nav, all-round parking sensors (rather than just rear on Active models) and a 180-degree reversing camera. You also get Peugeot’s Safety plus pack, which includes blind-spot alert and lane-keep assist, along with the standard car’s automatic emergency braking. GT Line models look more upmarket thanks to different bumpers and bright full-LED headlights. On top of that, you get adjustable interior lighting, a charging spot for your phone and a stylish black roof lining. GT-Line Premium includes keyless entry & push button start, smart electric tailgate, driver and front passenger seat heating, driver seat multi-point massage function , 230v Power Socket, panoramic opening glass roof & 19” two-tone alloy wheels.

The 1.5 litre diesel (52 miles per gallon) replaces the 1.6 litre, the new engine has an extra 10bhp, now 128, as a six speed manual or new 8 speed automatic, this is a better choice over the small petrol in our opinion as the 5008 is a large vehicle to move around and the extra torque from the diesel offending will help.
