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.

get the best price

Active gives you all the basic luxuries, including 16in alloy wheels, manual air conditioning, electric door mirrors, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, rear parking sensors, a 7.0in touchscreen infotainment system with smartphone mirroring and a height-adjustable driver’s seat, while keeping costs down.

We haven't tried this engine in the 2008, but we'll let you know what it's like as soon as we can.
