What Car? says...

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.
