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.

The 2008 is a family-friendly SUV, a tall, 208 supermini-based, four-metre-long entrant into an increasingly crowded market. Like most of its rivals, it's a typically straightforward piece of engineering. While considerably more meat has been added, the platform beneath the taller car is the same as the one that underpins the 208; there’s no four-wheel drive option to drastically alter the similarities. Overall the 2008 might be a heavier car, but it is more practical than the supermini on which its based.

There are many different engines and trim options to choose from. Read on over the next few pages to get our in depth impressions of the 2008 range, along with our recommendations for which of those trim levels and engines to choose.
