The Top Gear car review:Peugeot 5008
Running costs and reliability
Like the 3008, the 5008 is not available with all-wheel drive, but rather an optional advanced traction and descent control system and marginally chunkier tyres. This makes the range much easier to understand – there’s Active, Allure, GT Line and then GT. Even base Active gets DAB and CarPlay/Android Auto, plus lane-departure warning and auto headlights/wipers. Allure adds more safety systems, built-in nav and tray tables on the back of the front seats. GT Line gets sportier interior and exterior trim, as well as LED headlights and wireless phone charging. GT, meanwhile, is only available with the auto gearbox and most powerful engines. It adds some kit, but nothing you can’t spec on lesser 5008s. Prices start at a little under £25k, rising to comfortably over £30k for a GT.
As for economy, Peugeot claim 55.4mpg and 117g/km CO2 for the 1.2-litre petrol – you’ll see low- to mid-40s.
