Best Car For Families With 3 Children: Peugeot 5008 SUV
Added: 03 June 2019
Although many MPVs and SUVs feature seven seats, not all of them can fit more than two child seats into the rear rows of the car, which can be a real inconvenience to families.
With this in mind, What Car? wanted to find out which vehicle is the best for larger families. They lined up 16 leading MPV and SUV models and tested their ability to accommodate three child seats*.
Of the seven large SUVs tested, What Car? was able to fit all three child seats into just two models; one of which was the Peugeot 5008 SUV - and it just so happens to be the winner of their 'Large SUV' category!
At Day’s Peugeot, we’re not surprised that it’s the What Car? team’s favourite. It really is ready for whatever you can throw at it. With seven individual seats on board, everyone can get comfortable.
Take a look at the video below, which explains just how versatile it is...
The use of a child seat in the second or third row was prohibited in four of the large SUVs tested, which is where the Peugeot 5008 SUV shines. Steve Huntingford, editor of What Car? said, “This just goes to show how important it is for new parents, especially those with multiple kids, to do their homework when buying a new car. A vehicle may feature seven seats, but if only two can accommodate a child seat, it may not be the ideal choice.”

*What Car? tested each vehicle with three different child seats, an infant carrier, a seat suitable for a toddler, and one for an older child. Child seats were only fitted in the rear seats, with the front passenger seat omitted from the test. The two larger seats could be secured only via ISOFIX points, while the Group O+ infant seat can be secured either via a seatbelt or ISOFIX. The results are based on this scenario only, other seats may differ in their size and dimensions and prove a better fit.
