Peugeot 5008 1.6L GT 2021 Review

PEUGEOT’S 5008 SUV is a market leader in Europe’s SUV segment and when you drive the recently released model here you realise that is for good reason. It is impressive having a level of style and comfort hard to match for the price. 

It’s well-equipped including 18 inch grey alloy wheels, adaptive cruise control, LED headlights, heated nappa leather seats, driver massage function and sumptuous Alcantara and leather effect trim.

Behind the small sports steering wheel is a 12.3-inch customisable digital display screen including navigation directions. With individualised seven seats it’s also comfortable, practical and versatile.


Powered by a 1.6L 4 Cyl turbo petrol engine that produces enough power and torque for the six speed transmission to allow both relaxed cruising and zippy around town driving. The ride, handling and general driving dynamics rivals its European counterparts

Priced from $51,990 plus the usual costs the 5008 offers a surprisingly value based alternative to the premium European brands along with style and individual panache.
