What is the difference between Peugeot 5008 and Skoda Kodiaq?

Are you wondering how the new Peugeot 5008 stacks up against the Skoda Kodiaq? Read on to find out.

Spaciousness & Practicality

The Skoda Kodiaq and the new Peugeot 5008 are both 7 seat SUVs, and while the Kodiaq has a roomy second row, the third row is likely to be a tight fit for taller people. In the 5008, the three middle seats can be adjusted to suit each passengers desired legroom, making it a comfortable sit for anyone.

Boot space in the Kodiaq is 270 litres normally or 630 litres with the rear seats folded down. You can further fold all the seats down to get 2005 litres. Comparably, the 5008 has 2042 litres of space with all the rear seats folded down, plus the front passenger seat can fold down to accommodate long items such as a surfboard. Furthermore, the third row seats can be removed completely in the Peugeot 5008 to free up even more space.

Design & Style

The Kodiaq and the Peugeot 5008 are both considered stylish vehicles, and most of the differences come down to preference. The Kodiaq features a tough look with 20-inch alloy wheels and red brake calipers at the front. Inside, it has leather/Suedia seats with a silver stitching and a sporty leather steering wheel.

The new Peugeot 5008 looks streamlined and compact with a classy black roof for some grades. Its rear is angled to give off an athletic appearance, and it features the distinctive claw-like lights.

Inside, the 5008 displays a careful attention to detail with high-quality materials throughout and an optional panoramic sunroof. Both leather and fabric trims with classy stitching are available. The modern i-Cockpit gives the 5008 a sporty feel, while Cockpit Amplify, available on the highest grades, allows you to adjust lighting and fragrances to set a particular mood.

Engine & Fuel Efficiency

The Kodiaq offers only a turbocharged petrol engine with maximum performance of 132kW and a maximum torque of 320Nm. Skoda claims it can accelerate from 0-100km/h in 8.2 seconds, and has a fuel consumption between 6.6 and 9.3 L/ 100km.

In comparison, the new Peugeot 5008 offers two engine sizes: a turbocharged 1.6 litre petrol engine for the Allure and GT-Line and a 2.0 litre turbo-diesel in the GT. The petrol engine gives 121kW and 240Nm of torque, while the diesel offers 133kW and 400Nm. Fuel consumption for the petrol engine sits between 5.3 and 9.8L/100km and 4.6 to 5.8L/100km for the diesel engine.

Safety Features

Both the Skoda Kodiaq and the new Peugeot 5008 score well for safety. Both come with standard safety features, but you must upgrade on the Kodiaq to get any of the advanced safety equipment that comes standard in the 5008.

Across all variants in the new Peugeot 5008, you can expect a 360 degree parking camera with sensors in the front and rear, lane-departure warning, blind spot detection, advanced driver alert, emergency brake assist and adaptive cruise control.
