Attractive, spacious, flexible and economical; the Peugeot 5008 has a lot going for it. This MPV can comfortably carry up to seven people too, and comes in Active and Allure grades.
The 5008 is a people carrier with a sense of style, and its smoothly-contoured five-door body rides on lightweight and eye-catching 17-inch alloy wheels. Chrome finishes can be discerned on the car’s window surrounds, fog lamp trims and elsewhere. The practical nature of the vehicle is reflected in features such as roof rails and automatic headlights. Further illumination includes front fog lamps, providing greater visibility in gloomy conditions, while LED daytime running lights ensure that the head-turning 5008 is always easy to see.
The vehicle’s cabin provides plenty of headroom for travellers in all compartments, and ample legroom for occupants in rows one and two. Each seat is independent too, and the rearmost row is particularly suitable for smaller passengers. Front-seat travellers are treated to adjustable positions, while passengers in rows two and three benefit from window blinds that provide much-needed respite from direct sunshine. Other standard features include automatic dual-zone climate control and electric front and rear windows, enabling all passengers to remain cool (or warm, as the case may be.) Even with five seats in place, this MPV still offers 823 litres of boot space. With the second row additionally folded, there’s 2,506 litres of luggage capacity to play with. Split-folding rear seats and a folding passenger position ensure that the most can be made of the vehicle’s length in order to stow extra-long items.
A 1.2-litre 128bhp PureTech engine is fitted as standard with entry-level Active grades. Attached to a six-speed manual gearbox, this delivers up to 52.3mpg and a 124g/km CO2 emission figure. The most fuel-efficient option available for the 5008 is a 1.6-litre 118bhp BlueHDi unit. Paired with six-speed automatic transmission this returns as much as 65.7mpg and CO2 emissions as low as 112g/km.
Technology and safety
The 5008’s MP3-compatible CD player and AM/FM radio should help to keep everyone entertained but failing that, you can always stream audio content using Bluetooth® or connect compatible media devices via USB. This people carrier is especially safe, as exemplified by the five-star crash-test rating bestowed upon it by Euro NCAP. A wide range of safety features are included, such as a six-airbag system, Tyre Pressure Sensors, Hill-start Assist, Electronic Stability Programme and Traction Control. Also featured are front and rear sensors that are an invaluable aid when it comes to parking.
