Review

Not only does the Peugeot 2008 look the part (both inside and out), it's well equipped and has a range of punchy, efficient petrol engines. That said, the Ford Puma and Skoda Kamiq are better all-rounders, as is the Audi Q2 if you want a premium badge.

Trim: GT

Top-spec GT trim is best avoided – it bumps the price up massively and you can add most of its extra goodies – including keyless entry, blind spot monitoring and a panoramic roof – on lower trims, if you so desire.

Engine: 1.2 PureTech 155

The more powerful 1.2 Puretech 155 is eye-wateringly expensive, yet doesn’t have the straight-line pace to trouble the more performance-focused hot small SUVs in this price bracket.
