​The Peugeot 5008 hasn't featured in our Driver Power customer satisfaction surveys, but the closely related 3008 has been, and has been a regular on the list of best cars to buy. It’s presently 37th place on that list, with owners praising the car's ride and handling, safety features and infotainment. Peugeot, as a brand, came in ninth spot in the best car manufacturer rankings (out of 32 brands), behind Korean rival Kia, but ahead of Nissan, Skoda, SEAT, Vauxhall, VW, and Renault.

As family transport, the Peugeot will be reassuringly safe, offering autonomous braking and lane-departure warning as standard across the range, while Allure models come with high-beam and lane-keeping assist functions. Range-topping GT adds blind spot detection, as well as adaptive cruise control.

Unfortunately, the 3008 (the car Euro NCAP crash tested and based the 5008’s rating on) was crash tested long ago in 2016, and the test has altered so much since that this rating has now expired. That’s not to say the 5008 wouldn’t protect you well in a collision, but a host of rivals tested under the latest criteria, such as the Land Rover Discovery Sport and Nissan X-Trail, are likely to protect you even better.

Warranty

The Peugeot 5008 has a two-year unlimited mileage warranty from the factory, plus an extra year from the dealer, adding up to a total of three years. That matches the industry standard, although it can't match Kia’s seven-year cover and Toyota's ten-year package.

Servicing

The 1.2 Hybrid needs servicing every 12 months or 12,500 miles, while the 1.2 PureTech requires servicing annually or every 16,000 miles, and the diesel needs checking every 12 months or 20,000 miles.

Peugeot offers fixed-price servicing packages to help spread the cost of scheduled maintenance, and costs around £20 per month.
