The Peugeot 2008 isn't a model dating back to the time of the last financial crisis and Usain Bolt's record-breaking Olympics – it's the French brand's small SUV. It also has ambitions that would once have seemed well above Peugeot's station.
How so? Well, for decades Peugeot has been duking it out with the so-called mainstream brands (and it's still doing so today) but more expensive versions in the latest 2008's line-up stray well into the Audi Q2's more premium territory.
That isn't as fanciful as it might seem, as you realise as soon as you jump inside the 2008 and feast you eyes on its lavish interior. It's also one of the largest cars in the small SUV class, so although it's slightly more expensive than the likes of the Ford Puma and Renault Captur, you are literally getting more for your money too.
Like the smaller Peugeot 208 hatchback that it's based on, the taller 2008 is available with a choice of petrol and diesel engines. There’s also a fully electric version that you can read about in our full separate Peugeot e-2008 review.
The review you're reading here focuses on the petrol and diesel versions, so read on to find out everything you could want to know about the Peugeot 2008, including whether it's good try, if it's comfortable inside and how much it will cost to run.
