How much does the Peugeot 5008 cost to run?

The 1.6L diesel is the most economical Peugeot 5008 to run, taking into account insurance, tax and fuel efficiency. Compared to the competition in the Large MPV segment, it will make the smallest dent in your wallet.

The Peugeot 5008 1.6L diesel costs £20.00 a year to tax, as it sits in tax band B.

It does just under 69 MPG on average, which means it will cost £9.00* in diesel every 100 miles driven.

In terms of fuel efficiency, it sits between the Citroen Grand C4 Picasso 1.6L diesel and the more thirsty Ford Galaxy 1.6L diesel.

The lower the insurance group, the cheaper a car should be to insure. This model is rated insurance group 11, which is the lowest insurance group in this class bar none.

Peugeot 5008: How big is the boot?

The Peugeot 5008 SUV has a bigger boot than the MPV (it can hold 952 litres of luggage with the seats up).

This allows the SUV to take one pushchair and 7 large bags or 8 large bags. While the MPV takes just 5 large bags.

The Peugeot 5008 SUV is the best in class, and better than its closest rival Hyundai I800.

Is the Peugeot 5008 easy to park?

This is one of the widest cars in the class, which makes it feel like a bit of a squeeze in the multi-stories. If that stresses you a bit, try the much narrower Citroen Grand C4 Picasso.

If the pressure of street parking gets to you, then this is the car to buy. It is shorter than anything else in its class, giving you a healthy 237mm gap in the space to manoeuvre the car.

Which Peugeot 5008 has the best performance?

The fastest Peugeot 5008 from 0-60, is the 2.0L diesel (if you’re a petrol head, it has 400 lbs/ft torque and 180 bhp). It hits 60 mph in 9.1 seconds.

The closest rival in its class is the Ford S Max 2.2L diesel, which will beat your Peugeot 5008 to 60 by 0.1 seconds. That’s a big gap in Formula 1, but not something you would notice in your commute to work.

What size caravan or trailer, can the Peugeot 5008 tow?

If you are towing you want good torque to pull away easily despite the extra weight, and the car needs to be at least 15% heavier than the caravan to keep you stable at speed.

The model that can tow the biggest caravan or heaviest trailer is the Peugeot 5008 2.0L diesel which has 400 lbs/ft torque. It should be able to tow a braked caravan or trailer that weighs up to 1800kg comfortably.

You must check your car handbook – maximum towing weights vary considerably with different engine and gearbox combinations.
