Peugeot 5008 buying guide

5008 buyers get the option of several different trim levels and engines. This guide will talk you through each option, so you can choose the one that’s right for you.

What Peugeot 5008 trim levels are there?

Active trim starts the range. It gets alloy wheels, two-zone climate control, rear parking sensors, cruise control, automatic emergency braking, and an infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. This trim was updated to Active Premium for 2021-and-newer 5008s, gaining styling updates and a reversing camera.

Allure is the mid-range option. This trim adds larger alloy wheels, lane-keep assist, automatic high beams, blind-spot detection, front and rear parking sensors, a reversing camera, and built-in sat nav for the infotainment system. 2021-and-newer models saw this trim upgraded to Allure Premium, which includes part-faux-leather upholstery and a larger infotainment screen.

GT Line is Peugeot’s sporty trim level and includes meaner-looking styling details to help it stand out. Equipment includes LED headlights, wireless phone charging and a sportier body kit. GT Line Premium models gain larger alloy wheels, heated front seats, a massaging driver’s seat and a panoramic sunroof.

GT, confusingly, is the top-level trim for 5008s. This features luxuries including adaptive cruise control, a 360-degree parking camera, leather upholstery and an upgraded sound system. GT trim split in two for 2021-and-newer 5008s, with GT models dropping some of the top level features, while they remained on the new top-of-the-line GT Premium trim.

Peugeot 5008 interior and technology

Cabin design has been a key strength of recent Peugeots, and you’ll find it in abundance in the 5008. Material quality is high, while the design feels modern with minimalist look. You get the brand’s so-called i-Cockpit, which includes an unusually small steering wheel and digital dials that you view over the wheel, rather than through it. It might take a little getting used to at first, but the small wheel makes it easy to quickly perform tight turns in the road. Annoyingly, Peugeot insists on putting heater and air con controls in its touchscreen, rather than as physical switches, which makes them a little harder to use on the move.

All versions of the 5008 include a touchscreen infotainment system along with a digital driver’s screen behind the steering wheel. Crucially, all models include Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, so you can mirror your music and navigation apps from your phone. The screen itself is reasonably responsive, but the menu layout can be a little confusing and, as mentioned, it’s irritating to have to use the screen to adjust the cabin temperature.

As you’d hope from a large SUV, the 5008 scores highly for practicality. With all seats in position, you can just about fit seven full-sized adults on board – and the three individual seats on the middle row are great for families with more than two children. Boot space is small with all seats in place but is positively massive when you start folding them down, and can rival some small vans with just the front two seats up.

Peugeot 5008 engine range explained

Peugeot 5008 1.2 PureTech 130 petrol

This is the entry-level petrol engine for the 5008. It’s a 1.2-litre three-cylinder petrol engine that makes 130hp with the aid of a turbocharger. Boasting a 0-62mph time of 9.9 seconds, this version is powerful enough that it won’t feel strained at higher speeds, but is unlikely to win any drag races. You’ll find a six-speed manual gearbox as standard, with an automatic available as an option.

Peugeot 5008 1.6 PureTech 180 petrol

This is the larger and more powerful petrol engine offered in the 5008, and is only available with an eight-speed automatic gearbox. It’ll hit 62mph from rest in a little over eight seconds, helping it feel quite a bit stronger than the entry-level petrol engine.

Peugeot 5008 1.5 BlueHDi 130 diesel

The diesel engine range kicks off with a 1.5-litre four-cylinder unit that makes 130hp. Its 11-second 0-62mph time is nothing to write home about but, if you drive with a light right foot, average mpg can rise as high as 60mpg. This unit is offered with either a manual or auto gearbox.

Peugeot 5008 2.0 BlueHDi 180 diesel

At the top of the diesel 5008 range sits this 2.0-litre unit with 180hp, only available with the automatic gearbox. The extra power pushes the 0-62mph time down to a little over nine seconds, while average economy falls to around 51mpg.

Your Peugeot 5008 questions answered

The 5008 comes in just one form only – a seven-seat, five-door SUV with a hatchback boot lid. Peugeot also makes the 3008, which uses many of the same parts and engines, and has similar styling at a glance, but is a little smaller with just five seats.

Buyers in the market for a 5008 might want to cross shop it against models including the Skoda Kodiaq, Nissan X-Trail, SEAT Tarraco or Kia Sorento.

If you’re looking at nearly new 5008 models, you’re likely to come across pre and post-facelift models. Updated 5008 models went on sale in 2021 and featured a number of styling changes inside and out, along with slightly updated equipment lists. The two can be told apart fairly easily by the front-end styling – pre-2021 cars feature a smaller front grille with a chrome surround, while 2021-and-newer models now use a wider ‘frameless’ grille that blends seamlessly into the headlights.

The 5008 is one of the largest cars Peugeot makes, measuring in a little more than 4.6 metres long. Despite its length, the 5008 is actually one of the shorter cars in its class, losing a few millimetres to the Skoda Kodiaq, SEAT Tarraco, Nissan X-Trail and Kia Sorento – only the Land Rover Discovery Sport and Mercedes GLB manage to squeeze seven seats into a slightly shorter package.

Trading a few millimetres here or there is pretty irrelevant, however, when you consider how practical the 5008 is. You get seven seats, with the middle row being three individual seats, each with its own Isofix mounting point. The middle row is key to making the most of the 5008’s cabin – with up to five passengers, you can slide the middle row backwards, giving an enormous amount of legroom. If you need to carry six or more, however, you can slide the middle row forward to permit just enough space in the third row for adults to squeeze in for short journeys.

You can get your 5008 with either a petrol or diesel engine – the latter tends to be slightly more popular thanks to its extra torque, which can come in handy when fully loaded or if you plan on doing some light towing. Peugeot’s eight-speed automatic gearbox is widely available across the range and we think it suits the car’s character well.

Peugeot's performance in reliability surveys has improved lately and there are no widespread reports of common issues with the 5008. Many of the parts and engines are shared with other models in the Peugeot lineup, so availability of replacements shouldn't prove too much of an issue.

You can protect yourself from unexpected repair costs beyond the factory warranty period by purchasing an extended warranty with your 5008.

The Peugeot 5008 is more of a large SUV than a true 4x4, so is best suited to towing small-to-medium-sized caravans. Over time, tow ratings for different 5008 models have changed, so make sure to check what your specific version is rated for by looking in the owner's manual.

Petrol-powered models with the 1.2-litre turbo engine were initially rated to tow a braked trailer weighing up to 950kg – more recent cars have improved this to 1,100kg. The 1.5-litre BlueHDi diesel engine is rated for a 1,200kg braked trailer with the eight-speed automatic gearbox, or 1,300kg with the six-speed manual.

If you need a higher towing capacity, hunt down one of the rarer 5008s equipped with the 1.6-litre turbo petrol engine, which can haul 1,400kg. Or, for the biggest jobs, the 2.0-litre diesel version can manage a braked trailer weighing up to 1,800kg.

5008 models equipped with the 1.2-litre petrol engine were initially rated to tow a braked trailer weighing 950kg, but this was bumped up to 1,100kg for more recent versions.

The 1.5-litre BlueHDi diesel can tow 1,200kg with the automatic gearbox and 1,300kg with the manual.

Older 1.6-litre petrol models can pull 1,400kg, but the mightiest version is the 2.0-litre diesel, capable of pulling a 1,800kg braked trailer.

No. The 5008 is only available with front-wheel drive. For most buyers, this won't make any difference in day-to-day driving, as the 5008 is optimised to be used on paved roads and for very light off roading. Sticking with just two driven wheels also means the 5008 is more efficient and potentially a little faster than if it'd been equipped with a four-wheel drive system.

If you're worried about the lack of 4WD when driving during the colder months, you'll almost certainly get more benefit from sticking a set of winter tyres on your 5008, than from choosing a four-wheel drive model with summer or all-season rubber. Only drivers that go a long way from the beaten path are likely to be better off with a true 4x4.

Yes. The 5008 comes with seven seats as standard – two in the front, three in the middle and two in the back. That makes it extra-versatile when carrying passengers.

While there's loads of space in the front five seats, the sixth and seventh positions are cramped with very limited amounts of legroom, so these spots are best suited for children and smaller passengers.
