4: Peugeot 5008 – Last year’s winner is still scoring for families

Top 100 cars for 2019: Spacious third-row and quality finish makes it conspicuously good value

Peugeot 5008: still one of the very few SUVs or crossovers that we actually really like, or would seriously consider buying

Last year’s Number One slips to fourth, but it’s still one of the very few SUVs or crossovers that we actually really like, or would seriously consider buying.

Bigger and more bluff than its sportier 3008 cousin it’s so cavernous inside, and can seat seven as standard, that it seems almost conspicuously good value, especially against competition direct and indirect such as the Skoda Kodiaq and Hyundai Santa Fe.

The cabin is the Peugeot 5008’s high point; still interesting to look at, well made, and with rather groovy tweed-effect instead of predictable wood or fingerprint-happy “piano black”.

Best model: 1.5 BlueHDI Allure for €35,255

Price range: €29,445 to €47,995. Finance from €258 per month.

Co2 emissions: 106 to 129g/km

Sum up: Seven goes into this 5008.
