Driven: Peugeot 5008
Posted: 20 May 2010
You've the choice of five engines - two Mini-derived 1.6-litre turbo petrols putting out 120bhp and 150bhp - and three diesels. We're in the top-spec 150bhp 2.0-litre diesel, and it's perfectly fit to family task, torquey and smooth and quick enough even when loaded to the brim with said midget orchestra.
How does it drive? Let's go with... anonymously. In a good way. It's generally thoroughly composed and understeery: the kids won't vomit all over the nice upholstery on a bumpy lane, but you won't punt it down a B-road like, say, the Ford S-Max.
