Introduction

What Car? says...

No, the Peugeot 2008 isn't a model dating back to the time of the last financial crisis and Usain Bolt's record-breaking Olympic appearance. It's actually the French brand's latest small SUV and one with ambitions that would have once 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 the latest 2008 isn't only a rival for the Ford Puma, Renault Captur, Skoda Kamiq and Volkswagen T-Roc; the more expensive versions in the line-up stray well into Audi Q2 territory.

That isn't as fanciful as it might seem, something 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 class, so, although it's slightly more expensive than the likes of the Puma and Captur, you are quite literally getting more for your money.

Like the smaller 208 hatchback on which it's based, the taller Peugeot 2008 is available with a choice of petrol and diesel engines, but there’s also a fully electric version called the e-2008 that you can read about in our separate review.  

This review focuses on the petrol and diesel versions, so click through to the next page to start finding out everything you could want to know about the Peugeot 2008. We'll also run you through the engines and trims we think make the most sense, as well as the options you'd do well to consider.

And whichever car you end up deciding to buy, head over to our New Car Buying service for great discounts on the 2008 with no haggling at all.
