If you’re looking for one of the best SUVs for style and you need seven seats, well, we think we’ve you’ve found the right review. The Peugeot 5008 has been on sale since 2017 but a facelift in 2020 really lifted its game, introducing a bold front-end design and updated equipment.

But the 5008 is more than just a good-looking car. Alongside a characterful and efficient selection of petrol and diesel engines, the interior practicality also offers something few other rivals in the best seven-seater SUV category manage to achieve: three individual seats in the centre row.

So while the rear-most seats are still best left to occasional use, there will be no squabbling about who gets the uncomfortable middle seat here. All three in the centre row are exactly the same, can be moved independently, and each is equipped with Isofix mounting points for child seats as well.

But that detail aside, this is a very competitive area of the market. Rivals to the 5008 include the ever-popular and very practical Skoda Kodiaq. The Kodiaq’s more stylish close-relation, the SEAT Tarraco. The Tarraco’s more brand-forward close-relation, the VW Tiguan Allspace. The good-value and spacious Hyundai Santa Fe. And the well-equipped Kia Sorento.

The 5008 fights its corner with a solid showing in the equipment and value stakes. But it’s the individual design that’s still likely to stand out for many buyers. Especially since this is complemented on the inside by the i-Cockpit dashboard design, which uses a small steering wheel and high-set dials to create a unique driving arrangement you’ll only find on other Peugeots.

This is something many people love to hate, but it works just fine once you’re used to it, and is another way the 5008 differentiates itself from the crowd. Add in a comfortable, confidence inspiring driving experience that feels responsive without becoming overwhelming, and there’s plenty to consider here.

Over the next few pages we’ll be thoroughly reviewing all aspects of the Peugeot 5008 and rating them in our verdict. Our expert scores will take into account the driving experience, how pleasant the interior is, the practicality on offer, what it’ll cost you to run and how it compares to the best rivals.
