This looks like a crossover. Isn’t the Peugeot 5008 a people carrier? Yup, the Peugeot 5008 has had an extreme makeover. It used to be a seven-seat MPV. Now it’s an extended version of the 3008 crossover-SUV, still with seven seats. It has only two close rivals at the moment: the Nissan X-Trail and Skoda Kodiaq. But as with any part of the SUV-shaped market, you can bet this niche will be filled out by many more in coming years. Why the change from MPV to SUV? Peugeot wants to sell the new 5008 in China and South America, where no-one buys people carriers. No-one much buys them in Europe any more either.
