After driving the Peugeot 3008 at the end of the year, I was left with a jaw dropping experience.

So when I heard about the 5008 I was itching to find out if it was just as good.

And let’s say it wasn’t far off.

Under the microscope was the Peugeot 5008 Allure; the base model, seven-seater, mid-sized SUV.

Priced from $42,990, the 5008 garners a lot of attention from people in the know, with looks and even question in the car park.

But I’m getting ahead of myself.

The Peugeot 5008 is just a larger version of the 3008 and is just as attractive from the outside with an elongated SUV shape.

The Allure is adorned in a lot of chrome highlights and from the side profile is almost Range Rover Evoque-esque.

Being similar to its smaller brother, the 5008 has the same internal styling with much the same layout and finishes.
