The Peugeot 2008 is a compact SUV that competes with strong competition in the form of the Citroen C4 Cactus, Renault Captur, Kia Soul and Nissan Juke. All of these front-wheel drive cars offer an SUV-like stance, urban-appropriate supermini dimensions, and low running and purchase costs.
There are four trims to choose from: Access A/C, Active, Allure and GT Line, plus three petrol and three diesel engines. It makes sense to keep the 2008 as cheap as possible, though, so it’s best to stick with the well-equipped but well-priced Active trim.
Even kept cheap, the 2008 isn’t the best small SUV you can buy. Ride comfort and handling are questionable, and while it has a classy-feeling interior, the cabin isn’t as versatile as that offered by some rivals. Ultimately, you’ll enjoy owning a Renault Captur or Citroen C4 Cactus more.
