The Peugeot 2008 is a mini-SUV based on the 208 supermini, and it uses the same range of efficient petrol and diesel engines.

However, with a higher driving position and more space for passengers and luggage, it could be the better-value proposition, even taking into account the premium over the hatchback.

Every diesel model averages more than 70mpg in official tests, while even the least efficient engine the 1.6-litre petrol manages almost 50mpg.

Standard equipment is fairly generous all models get air-conditioning, six airbags, electric front windows, cruise control and central locking. The range-topping cars feature a panoramic glass roof, sat-nav and ambient lighting.

Despite the 4x4 looks, all 2008s are front-wheel drive. However, pricier versions come with Peugeot's Grip Control system, which lets the driver optimise the car's electronics for different conditions at the twist of a dial. These cars get all-weather tyres.
