​If fuel economy is your priority, then the Peugeot 5008 for you is the 1.5 BlueHDi 130 diesel because it's the most economical of the lot, with an official WLTP economy figure of 54.1mpg. 

The 1.2 Hybrid is almost as economical at 53.3mpg. We saw 45mpg out of a 3008 equipped with this engine, so we’d expect the larger 5008 to get at least 40mpg in the real world, maybe even more if you mostly drive in town and can utilise its electric running as much as possible. We expect the 5008 to be more economical than the equivalent SEAT Tarraco and Skoda Kodiaq, because both have worse official figures.

If you’re on a budget and have to go for pure petrol power, the 1.2 PureTech 130 option is a decent pick. Its official figure is 46.4mpg, which should translate into high-30s in normal driving. Besides, the 1.2 Hybrid costs an additional £1300 over the base 1.2, which is a fair amount of fuel over a typical three-year ownership period, so you’ll need to work out if the extra fuel economy of the 1.2 Hybrid is worth paying extra for in the long run – especially if you don’t cover many miles.

The 1.2 Hybrid’s lower emissions will be useful to company car drivers. It has the lowest emissions of any 5008 at 128g/km, making it several tax brackets lower than the 149g/km 1.2 PureTech. The diesel sits somewhere in between at 131g/km.

Insurance groups

Getting rid of the larger engine options means insurance for the 5008 isn’t as pricey as it used to be. The range starts in group 21 for a 1.2 PureTech and 1.5 BlueHDi in entry-level Active trim, rising to 23 for the 1.2 Hybrid.

That’s on a par with the Tarraco, but less than top models of Kodiaq, which can go as high as group 28 for a four-wheel drive 2.0 TDI Sportline model.

Depreciation

The Peugeot 5008 is a desirable SUV, and our expert data suggests it’ll retain between 46% in 1.5 BlueHDi Active form, and 51% in 1.2 PureTech GT trim after three years and 36,000 miles of ownership. That’s a little behind the 54 per cent predicted for the Skoda Kodiaq 1.5 SE Drive, but better than all versions of SEAT Tarraco.
