Written by Keith Adams on

If you're looking for a stylish SUV with seven seats, you've arrived at the right review. It's been around since 2017, but was facelifted in 2020 with a bold new front end and updated equipment. Not that the Peugeot 5008 really needed – it was designed inside and out to stand out from the crowd and is powered by an interesting range of Puretech petrol and BlueHDI diesel engines.

But it's a busy part of the market with a significant number of rivals on offer. The SEAT Tarraco, Hyundai Santa Fe, Kia Sorento, Skoda Kodiaq and Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace are likely to be on your shopping list, and that shows just how competitive a market the 5008 is competing in.

But what the Peugeot has in spades is equipment and value, but does so without looking like a boring box that's built down to a price. And that means it still stands out, despite the strength of its younger rivals.

Bedecked with the eyecatching i-Cockpit instrument panel and a small steering wheel and high-level dials, it's like Marmite – you'll either love it or hate it inside. The facelift has expanded the availabiiity of standard-fit driver assistance tech, such traffic sign recognition and driver attention warning system in a model range that includes Active Premium, Allure, Allure Premium, GT and GT Premium models.

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