Peugeot's 5008 is the ultimate tool for the motorist with an adventurous family, as it delivers all the space, storage and safety you could ever need.
Flexibility is an important strength for any MPV to possess, and the 5008 boasts this in abundance. Both seven and nine-seater models are offered, and with a maximum storage capacity of 2,506 litres, you can be sure of carrying everything you need. The second and third rows fold to create a flat load area, and the reclining front seats can also be moved forward to give extra space. Three trim levels are available - Access, Active and Allure – although even the standard Access level offers plenty of generous features. Air conditioning boosts comfort further, while the cloth trim will stand up to heavy use. Meanwhile, the sophisticated CD/radio player can be upgraded to include satellite navigation, Bluetooth ®and a DAB digital receiver.
Further choice is afforded under the bonnet, where both petrol and diesel engines can be specified. Leading the range for economy is the 113bhp e-HDi 115 FAP EGC, which returns an excellent 65.7mpg combined. The most responsive is the 148bhp HDi 150 FAP, which uses this power to sprint from 0-60mph in less than ten seconds. Two 1.6-litre petrol engines are also available, delivering energetic performance with no lack of refinement.
Safety is another notable trait of the 5008, as you would expect from an MPV. The interior houses SMART airbags for driver and passengers, while three ISOFIX anchor points are found on the second row. There are also a number of cutting-edge preventative systems in Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) with Electronic Brake Force Distribution (EBFD), plus Electronic Stability Programme (ESP) and Anti-slip Regulation (ASR). Unsurprisingly, the model holds a five-star Euro NCAP safety rating.
