5. PEUGEOT 5008
THE 5008 is one of the more versatile sevenseat SUVS on sale. Three full-sized seats in the second row mean there’s plenty of space to get comfortable, and the third row can either be raised, lowered or removed completely, leaving a massive boot.
Willing engines and an agile feel mean the 5008 is decent to drive, too. The cabin is attractive and classy. There’s no four-wheel-drive version, which may put off some buyers, but when combined with mud and snow tyres, Peugeot’s Grip Control system does a good enough job to pull you out of a muddy field or snowy lane.
