"The Peugeot Peugeot 3008 is one of our favourite family SUVs and, if you like the look of it but need a bit more space, the 5008 offers broadly the same package with two extra seats in the boot. Like its little brother, the 5008 has been updated with a new grille, distinctive LED running lights to match the rest of the Peugeot range, updated trim, improved technology and additional driver assistance features. A stylish player in the seven-seat SUV market, it looks cooler than a Nissan X-Trail or Hyundai Santa Fe and is more affordable than a Land Rover Discovery Sport or Mercedes-Benz GLB."

Running costs for a Peugeot 5008
The Peugeot badge may not be as posh as that of Land Rover or Mercedes but the 5008 is stylish and well-built enough to hold its head high alongside premium seven-seat rivals like the Discovery Sport and GLB while being much more affordable to buy. The fact it has the SUV look but doesn’t feature expensive four-wheel drive hardware means it’s cheaper than more ‘4x4’ style rivals like the Hyundai Santa Fe and more efficient on fuel, though it’ll cost you more than a Nissan X-Trail. Unlike the 3008 there’s no hybrid option, so the 5008 won’t be as appealing to company drivers looking to keep their Benefit In Kind costs down. The petrol and diesel engines are relatively efficient, though, the former better if your journeys tend to be on the shorter side whereas the diesels are more cost effective if you do a lot of miles, especially fully loaded with all seven seats occupied.
