Interior & comfort Rating

3.8 out of 5

The Peugeot 5008 has a well built and easy-to-use interior. It’s not as eye-catching inside as the Citroen Grand C4 Picasso, but Peugeot has used high-quality materials and the 5008 is a pleasant place to spend time. The suspension does a good job of isolating you from potholes and poor road surfaces, while the seats are very comfortable on long journeys.

Peugeot 5008 dashboard

The large, sweeping dashboard looks great and there are plenty of classy-looking chrome switches, too. The short gearlever is quite a novel idea and means you don’t have to reach far, which can be an irritating characteristic of similarly sized cars. The overall fit and finish is solid, and the button placement is very easy to get used to. The latest Ford S-MAX fitted with the SYNC 2 infotainment system has a tidier dashboard, though.

Equipment

Only two trim levels make up the 5008 range and even the base model is well equipped (a facelift in 2014 did away with the sparsely equipped entry-level model). Now the Active trim features all-round parking sensors, cruise control, automatic headlights and windscreen wipers and air-conditioning. The high-end Allure spec features satellite navigation, a panoramic glass roof and a reversing camera.

Options

The 5008’s options list covers quite a few extra luxuries. Most of the features of Allure trim can be individually included on the Active model, while options like leather seats and DAB digital radio can also be specified, as well as Peugeot’s ‘Connect Video Pack’, which comes with two monitors, ports for DVD players and two Bluetooth headsets – ideal for keeping kids entertained in the back.
