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. There are three engines to choose from, a petrol, diesel and mild-hybrid petrol, but unlike the smaller Peugeot 3008, there's no full hybrid or electric 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

Petrol buying customers now benefit from mild-hybrid technology and a bit more poke – the small electric motor bumps power from 128bhp to 134bhp; Peugeot also claims a 15% improvement in fuel consumption.

The Hybrid 136 engine uses an updated version of the 1.2-litre PureTech engine and it gets an official fuel efficiency figure of up to 53.3mpg and CO2 emissions of between 120 and 139 g/km.

Bigger wheels on higher-spec cars affect economy and emissions and may have a detrimental effect on the car’s Benefit-in-Kind (BiK) tax bracket.

The 1.5-litre BlueHDi diesel can manage up to 54.1mpg and CO2 emissions of 137-163g/km. Without a plug-in hybrid or electric option, none are likely to appeal to company car drivers, unless they’re doing big miles and can justify the higher tax rating.

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 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

Choose the petrol mild hybrid and insurance groups are 23 or 24 if you upgrade to the flagship GT trim. Pick the diesel and entry Active trim gets group 21 cover, while it's 22 for the top two trims.

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.
