The smart-looking Peugeot 5008 is a simple-to-drive and practical seven-seat MPV that delivers plenty of passenger and cargo space.
Not all people carriers are especially appealing to look at, unlike the 5008 which, for instance, is fitted with standard-issue 17-inch alloys. These stylish wheels are extremely tough yet very lightweight, enabling optimal efficiency. The vehicle is also crowned with roof rails that provide additional load-bearing opportunities. All models also feature automatic headlamps, front fog lamps and LED daytime running lights, ensuring that the car is always visible and delivers just the right level of illumination.
The 5008’s versatile interior is, perhaps, its strongest feature, making it simple to achieve a perfect passenger-cargo balance. This is achieved with seats that slide and fold in a number of ways, and make access to the car very straightforward. Rows one and two provide each traveller with generous head- and leg-room, while row three is ideal for younger travellers. With five seats in place, boot capacity stands at 823 litres; with all but the front row folded, the 5008 delivers a van-like 2,506-litre load space..
The 5008’s entry-level 1.6-litre 120bhp diesel engine also happens to be its most fuel-efficient option, returning as much as 64.2mpg and CO2 emissions as low as 115g/km.
Technology and safety
All models include an MP3-compatible CD player and FM/AM radio to keep everyone entertained. Bluetooth® features too, enabling music streaming and hands-free telephoning. The 5008 boasts a maximum five-star Euro NCAP crash-test rating and comes with a raft of driver aids as standard. These include Electronic Stability Control, Cruise Control, Tyre Pressure Monitoring and front and rear parking sensors. Passive safety features, meanwhile, include three ISOFIX second-row anchor points and front, side and curtain airbags.
