2020 Peugeot 5008 review

these days growing families are moving away from traditional MPD’s in favor of SUVs in fact the SUV market is one of the biggest worldwide buyers love the high seating position excellent

visibility and the practical go anywhere capability of these chunky cars car makers need to move with the times n which is why the old boxy Peugeot 5008 has morphed into this rather funky

looking SUV it’ll need to have more than licks on its side though because it competes in the same territory as the Skoda Kodiak and Nissan x-trail and to beat those cars it will need to be good

to drive spacious inside and cheap to run is the 5008 a viable option for anyone looking for a family SUV then in this review we will reveal first of all they will see how it fares on UK roads

and if after all of that you’re interested in buying a Peugeot 5008 go to our new car deals section on whatcar.com where we can help save you some money the 1.2 litre petrol engine

we’ve got in this car is one of six available options and it’s also our preferred choice for private buyers because it’s punchy fuel efficient and smooth

if you’d like more power there’s a 1.6 liter petrol engine with a hundred and sixty-three brake horsepower there’s also a selection of 1.6 and 2-liter diesel engines but if you’re running it as a company car

we recommend the 148 brake horsepower 1.6 liter diesel engine whichever engine you go for the 5008 feels refined at motorway speeds and with this 1.2 liter petrol engine is one of the quietest

cars in this class be aware they that the control weights in petrol models can make the brakes feel grabby and the clutch feels spongy meaning it’s not as

engaging to drive as a Skoda kodiak we’d also advise leaving this sport button well alone this small steering wheel helps the 5008 feel nimble and gives you

real confidence to hustle it along through the corners a word of warning though if you live in the countryside there is no forward drive version yes you can spec grip control to help you

with mud and snow but offroad it is never going to be able to compete with a true four-wheel drive this well the futuristic interior is

what Peugeot calls the I cockpit and it’s the same as the one found on the smaller 3008 SUV which means you get this small steering wheel digital

display instead of a traditional instrument cluster found on higher-end models and you get this separate infotainment screen here and the mixture

of materials all put together feels pretty solid and overall the 5008 seems like a premium vehicle you’ll have no trouble getting comfortable in the

Peugeot 5008 because the seat has plenty of adjustment in it and the steering wheel adjusts for reach and rate all the controls are within easy reach although

there are some frustrations because there’s no shortcut to the climate control settings and if you want to adjust the cruise control well it’s kind

of hiding behind the steering wheel fiddly to get to this infotainment setup includes apple carplay and android auto and on most models also sat-nav it

doesn’t look as good as other systems offered in rivals and is not so easy to use in terms of visibility that is excellent and if you go for our

recommended a lure model or above you get parking sensors front and rear and a reversing camera if parking is not your strong point but no one will complain

about though is storage because there’s large door bins two cupholders here some more storage here and somewhere for a banana or other items of fruits glovebox not so impressive

move to this second row and it’s a similar story very spacious although if you go for the panoramic roof it does eat a little bit into head room and you

can fit three adults side-by-side very comfortably with enough a leg and Headroom and a shoulder room plus a flat floor means it’s somewhere to put your

feet and if you need to put three child seats along here you can because there’s a set of three isofix and to top it all off each seat adjusts like so and even

to relax the third row of seats however is not quite so relaxing for an adult and are best reserved just for children you can drop the 5008 front passenger

seat and with the middle row also folded away and the rear seat stowed you’ve got the full length of the car to use for your shopping you might not need all

that space though because the 5,000 Lakes boot is truly massive it’s also new fully Square and has a low floor so getting items in and out is easy you can

also get a power tailgate so you can open or close the boot by swiping your foot underneath the rear bumper the prayers over five thousand innate is

competitively priced against the Skoda Kodiak and resale values are set to be equally as strong and it’s also cheap to run as a company car thanks to low co2

emissions across the board the Peugeot 5008 is one of the best seven seater SUVs around right now it’s stylish practical decent to drive and even it’s

slow witted infotainment system doesn’t dampen its appeal too much in terms of safety kit every model comes with automatic emergency braking and it’s

been awarded to the full five stars by gyro and cap most versions come well-equipped but our recommended allure models additionally received sat-nav front and

rear parking sensors a reversing camera lane-keeping assistance and you know alloy wheels the Peugeot 5008 is one of the best 7 seater SUVs around

right now it’s stylish practical good to drive and if the dim-witted infotainment system.
