The interior layout, fit and finish

Driving position and dashboard

Like most small SUVs, the Peugeot 2008 isn’t that much taller than a regular hatchback. However, the seats are mounted quite high up in the car, so you do get a genuine SUV experience. You certainly sit further from the road than you do in a Skoda Kamiq.

There’s plenty of adjustment in the steering wheel and driver’s seat, but it's a shame adjustable lumbar support is available only as part of a costly package. It’s annoying, too, that the air conditioning controls are only accessible using the central touchscreen (as is the case with all current Peugeots). Physical buttons and knobs, like those in most rivals, would be less distracting to use on the move.

Sat nav and infotainment

The cheaper Peugeot 2008 trims get a 7.0in touchscreen infotainment system with shortcut buttons on both sides of the screen. A larger, 10.0in touchscreen comes as standard on GT and GT Premium trims, with the shortcut buttons repositioned lower down on the dashboard. The system can be added to the cheaper trims but it's quite expensive.

Both systems are a bit slow to respond to prods and generally fiddlier to operate than the more intuitive systems you'll find in the Audi Q2, Skoda Kamiq and VW T-RocApple CarPlay/Android Auto are standard, so thankfully you can bypass Peugeot's software and use your phone's software and navigation apps instead.
