MPG, running costs & CO2 Rating

4.0 out of 5

Modern manufacturing techniques mean blending lightness with strength is now easier than ever, so despite being a big car, the Peugeot 5008 is pretty lithe and frugal. Most of the engine lineup has remained relatively unchanged for the facelift, and unlike the smaller Peugeot 3008, there's no hybrid model to appeal to business drivers. It's also worth noting that despite the 5008's SUV stature, every version is front-wheel drive - this isn't a serious off-roader like the Land Rover Discovery Sport. 

Peugeot 5008 MPG & CO2

If you want a petrol 5008, the 1.2-litre PureTech 130 is a better choice than the 1.6-litre where fuel economy is concerned. Figures of up to 48mpg and 133-165g/km of CO2 should be easier on the wallet than 43.8mpg and 146-175g/km, particularly as the latter increases the car's Benefit-in-Kind (BiK) company-car tax band.

The 1.5-litre BlueHDi diesel can manage up to 60.8mpg, while the optional eight-speed automatic is still capable of fuel economy of up to 57.8mpg and CO2 emissions of 128-154g/km. The manual 1.5-litre diesel’s CO2 emissions are quoted at 122-148g/km.

With 175bhp, the 2.0-litre Blue HDi diesel is paired with an eight-speed automatic gearbox, and up to 51.1mpg is possible, while CO2 emissions increase to a maximum of 168g/km.

All 5008s will cost the standard rate each year in VED (road tax). The car could conceivably reach and breach the £40,000 mark if you go for top-spec GT Premium trim and add lots of options, though. If you’re one of the few people to configure a 5008 to be this expensive, you'll need to add the luxury car surcharge to the annual tax bill in years two to six.

Insurance groups

Insurance groups start from 20 and 21 for the 1.2-litre petrol and 1.5-llitre BlueHDI and increase to 29 for the top petrol and diesel engines with circa 180bhp.

Warranty

Peugeot’s three-year/60,000-mile warranty is distinctly average. With Hyundai, Kia, Toyota, BMW and Mercedes all offering more generous guarantees, it’s high time other manufacturers caught up.

Servicing

Peugeot offers fixed-price servicing packages lasting for three, four or five years, that are fairly priced at around £15 a month.
