2017 Peugeot 2008 Review

Introduction

The crossover cousin to the 208 supermini, the Peugeot 2008 is yet another pseudo-SUV success. It offers a higher seating position and tougher looks within a roughly supermini-sized footprint, for prices that, while they're creeping up, are not so far removed from the small car arena. A recent facelift has ensured it is ageing gracefully.

 

Body Style: Crossover         Seats: 5            MRP from £15,765 - £21,635 

 

Did you know? There are several different pronunciations of 2008: the favoured is ‘two double-oh eight’ as other variants sound awkward.

Verdict: ★★★★★★★★☆☆(7.6/10)

Clever Peugeot replaced the old-shape 208 estate not with another load-lugger, but with a stylish crossover car called the 2008. Still derived from the popular supermini, it was launched back in 2013 as the firm’s entry into the fledgling small crossover sector, and has gone on to be a really strong-seller. It’s easy to see why: it looks good, has an interesting and good-quality interior, drives sweetly and offers some nice engines. Practicality could be better and prices are not as affordable as they once were, but it’s still worth a look.
