Peugeot might call its 5008 a compact MPV but it’s far from small. With seven seats and a bright, roomy cabin there’s a lot of space on offer for a family. There’s a lot of flexibility, too, with a sliding middle row of seats to give between 758 and 823 litres of carrying capacity, or a huge 2506 litres with everything folded flat.

The rearmost row of seats isn’t exactly spacious, but for small children or occasional use it’s fine and access is good thanks to a clever mechanism in the middle row of seats. Add to that an easy-to-drive character, plus comfortable seats and you get very family-friendly car.

Peugeot offers a pair of 1.6-litre petrol engines with 120PS or 156PS, plus three diesel engines with between 115PS and 163PS. The lower powered petrol engine might not be the best suited to the 5008, but the rest of the range offers respectable performance.

Regardless of engine the 5008 is easy to drive and refined. Motorway cruising is relaxed and, despite the car’s large size, it’s easy to park or manoeuvre in town providing parking sensors are specified. It is a heavy car, but unless you press on particularly hard it remains composed even on twisting country roads.

The facelifted model, introduced in 2014, offers better quality and more standard equipment than earlier cars. It’s certainly more attractively styled than the pre-facelift model, but it doesn’t do quite enough to beat the pricier Ford S-MAX for driver enjoyment nor the Citroen C4 Grand Picasso for style and comfort.

The Peugeot 5008 doesn't stand out as the very best seven-seat MPV on sale, but it's worth adding to your shortlist. It’s easy to drive, practical and well-equipped, with impressive flexibility thanks to the easy-to-use seating system and large load area.
