Background
It’s an MPV, and a perfectly decent one. Seven seats as standard, a range of petrol and diesel engines and a ropey semi-auto gearbox option that’s best avoided. For more information on the 5008, click on our further stories on the links below.

60sec road test
Updated with a shinier grille and headlights for 2014, Pug’s biggest MPV remains a versatile family wagon, if not one to upstage the likes of the Ford S-Max. The second row seats’ bases can flip up like cinema seats and with both rear rows flat there’s a cavernous loading bay. Ride and handling are tidy and the driving position’s great, offering a good view of the road ahead without being high enough to induce vertigo. Bulky it might be, but it’s anything but intimidating to drive and its boxy shape and all-round vision makes it easier to park than some people movers. Downsides? Rubbish switchgear and generally poor front-cabin ergonomics all round, plus lots of very talented rivals.

The one we’d buy
Most popular engine is the 1.6 HDi 115 diesel

The one we’d avoid like the plague
Jerky ECG semi-auto

Rivals to consider
Citroen Grand C4 Picasso, Ford S-Max, Kia Carens, Vauxhall Zafira Tourer, VW Touran

For
Drives well, versatile seating, manageable dimensions, looks less awkward post-facelift

Against
Interior looks dated and is full of obstructive controls, competitors are just as good in many regards
