Why not test drive the Peugeot 5008 yourself at a dealer near you?

If you’re fed up with the uninspiring interior of your current family car then the futuristic forms and premium atmosphere inside the Peugeot 5008 make for the perfect upgrade. Build quality is impressive, but passenger space, and as a matter of fact, overall practicality isn’t quite on par with rivals such as the Skoda Kodiaq.

The driving experience is a pleasant surprise, though. Sure, there’s quite a bit of body roll and you’d never go out to drive your 5008 just for fun, but the comfortable ride more than makes up for it. The 5008 is also quiet at speed but won’t be available with a four-wheel-drive system unlike rivals such as the Nissan X-Trail.

Engines are comprised of a couple of petrols and a couple of diesels, power ranging from 130 to 180hp. Of course, this is a porky seven-seater that, if you plan to use as intended, will be thankful for the extra pulling power provided by the diesel engines.

All cars come with an 8.0-inch infotainment screen, Peugeot’s digital instrument binnacle, automatic emergency braking and a driver fatigue sensor.

Cosseting ride and high-tech interior are great but practicality not so much

The revamped 5008 has abandoned its boring MPV look and adopted the trendy SUV styling that is all the rage nowadays. However, in the process, it may have abandoned some MPV qualities that are quite important in the class. Yes, you get a snazzy cockpit to impress your passengers, but the limited rear headroom is a real oversight.

Things don’t look better for the 5008 once you consider its competitors. So if you want a striking SUV with a futuristic interior and don’t need the space, the smaller and more accomplished 3008 is the better purchase. Failing that – we’d go for a Skoda Kodiaq.
