Peugeot 5008 Allure SUV vs Citroen Grand C4 SpaceTourer MPV

So there are horses for courses here – but the simple fact is that if you’re fighting for space in one of these cars, you probably need a van instead.

Costs

Given that it’s the more sophisticated car of the two, it probably shouldn’t come as a surprise that the 5008 is also the more expensive one. You’re paying pretty much exactly £1,000 more for the 5008 in this guise than the one Big C4 SpaceToureralthough both have an identical engine-transmission combination and comparable equipment lists.

With the 5008 expected to hold its value so much better, you should lose less money on it when it comes time to resell it or partially trade it in, making it the cheaper proposition to own in the long run if you buy outright.

On the other hand, if you’re planning to finance your car, as most buyers will, judging by the offerings at the time of writing, the Citroen appears to be pretty cheap. The caveat is that these deals are constantly changing, so it’s worth double-checking to make sure they’re still true when that time comes to sign the dotted line.

In addition, Citroen’s maintenance and repair costs tend to be slightly cheaper than Peugeot’s. As far as fuel economy goes, that’s a big deal, which isn’t much of a surprise since both cars share the same engine and transmission.

Another thing that speaks in favor of the Citroen is the option of a five-year warranty at no extra cost. Order your Grand C4 SpaceTourer online, and Citroen will extend its standard three-year 60,000-mile warranty up to five years and 100,000 miles – something you can’t do with the Peugeot, whose three-year, 60,000-mile warranty is the minimum new car warranty that you can expect these days.

equipment and safety

Both cars come fairly well equipped as standard, with dual-zone climate control, satnav, cruise control, Apple CarPlay or Android Auto, front and rear parking sensors, a rear-view camera, and automatic lights and wipers.

The Peugeot then adds ambient lighting, larger alloy wheels and a larger touchscreen. But the Citroen gives you a panoramic sunroof, power boot lid, adaptive cruise control and fold-down tray tables on the backs of the front seats, making it the better equipped of the two.

Both cars have similar and very generous safety features. Since the 5008 is the slightly newer of the two cars, its engineering is a bit more advanced. However, the Citroen doesn’t come without the vital bits of kit that statistically reduce the likelihood of an accident, so it’s not a bad relative in that regard.
